Yes, anybody can bid, but you have to register then be approved and authorised, before you can place a bid. If you are only 'approved' you will be able to see pricing information, but you will not be able to bid.
If you are not a registered user you can still view details of vehicles for auction however you will not be able to submit or view prices being bid – click here to register.
As stated above, this is easy and you can do it via the Sign-In tab on the home page. We will need sufficient information to identify you and/or your business. After registration there may be a short delay while we validate your application before approving you to bid online.
On your “My Details” page, you will be able to view your current, registered contact details (email, address, telephone number, etc.). You will also be able to set what marketing you receive from us, along with type of vehicle and the age/mileage you look for. Additionally, you will be able to see what Buyer's Premium you will be paying.
A Buyer’s Premium is a fixed fee dependent upon the final selling price of items (minimum fee applicable) and is added to the total amount payable. Your premium will be detailed to you once approved as a buyer. We do not charge any other fees relating to the purchase of vehicle from CD Auction Group.
