Introducing Live Online

How to bid using Live Online

There are two main ways to buy a vehicle on Live Online:

1. You can place a bid during an auction
Simply click on the increment of your choice. Once you've clicked on an increment, your bid is taken into account instantly.

2. Alternatively you can place an automatic bid
If you want to save time or you cannot attend a Live Online auction, you can place an automatic bid.

Benefits of automatic bidding

You can decide your maximum bid before or during the auction. Thanks to our automatic bidding option, our system will bid incrementally on your behalf but never exceeds your maximum amount.

  • You can buy vehicles on Live Online, where you may not be able to logon to Live Online or attend the auction in person.
  • It is a natural extension to finding stock online, whereby you can search used stock, then "track" vehicles of interest, and now place automatic bids.
  • It gives you more flexibility, whereby you can place automatic bids on some vehicles and logon to Live Online for more active bidding on other vehicles or sales.
