How to buy at HH Auctions?
Buying at auction is and incredible experience and if you’ve never bought at auction before you will have a day never to be forgotten. It is indeed a quick, convenient and very easy way of getting a good vehicle at a good price. HH Auctions make the process of buying easy too and they provide lots of support and guidance to help you along the way.
I would advise that you be prepared before you come to the auction. Get a copy of the auction catalogue for the day of sale and highlight the vehicles that you are interested in. You then need to go onto the website and register that you would like to view and inspect these cars prior to the auction. Please do not go in blindly and bid for a vehicle which you have not previously inspected.
On the day at HH Auctions
On the day of the auction you may feel overwhelmed by the bustling environment with everyone rushing about but don’t let this put you off keep your focus and view each car thoroughly before the auction. A good tip is to write down on the catalogue how much you would be prepared to pay for the car. Don’t forget to take into account that the price on the hammer is not the total price as there will be a buyers fee to add on so make sure you take this into account.
You will need to register before you can bid and you’ll be given a number on a paddle which you can raise to bid. If you make the highest bid then you will need to go up to the podium and give the officer 20% of the price you bidded. This doesn’t have to be in cash though as you can use a Visa or Mastercard which is more convenient. You will be asked to complete a purchase form.
The final step is to go to the office where you will receive all the car documentation and where you can pay the balance including the buyers fee. The auctions will accept banker’s drafts, cash, cheques and most debit or credit cards. But check to see if there is an addition fee incurred for using credit cards. Once the paperwork is all signed and payments made you can take the car away. It such and easy process.
