Sales Terms & Auction Rates

All vehicles are SOLD AS SEEN unless otherwise stated at the point of sale by the auctioneer.

Vehicles offered with a TRIAL give warranty to engine and gearbox only. All trials must be taken within one hour of the end of sale. This can be arranged by us. Just ask.

There is a Buyer's Premium fee payable on each vehicle bought. This gives you clean entitlement to the vehicle indemnifying you as a customer against any finance, which may be outstanding. It also indemnifies you if the vehicle has been stolen prior to you buying it.

A minimum part payment is required at the point of bidding - £200 for vehicles up to £999, £300 for vehicles up to £1999 and £500 for vehicles of £2000 and over. Payment may be cash or debit card, with identification or a current photo driving license. (If you do not have a current Photo driving license   and address ID a surcharge of £20 will be added to your buyers premium).

Once a bid has been made, you have entered into a contract with Birmingham Car Auctions where your bid will stand and may not be withdrawn. Some vehicles are sold provisionally. This means that there is a reserve price on the vehicle that your bid has not met. A provisional bid stands until 12pm the following working day, which allows us time to contact the vendor to submit your bid. If your bid is unsuccessful, then your part payment is refunded. If successful, then the part payment is deducted from the price and the balance is payable by 4.30pm the same day.

Payment is accepted in the form of cash, credit / debit cards, banker's draft or a building society cheque.  A 3% charge is applied to payments by credit card. If you are paying by credit card or debit card, a photo driving license or current passport and utility bill must be shown. If paying by cash or debit card a 1% plus VAT charge is made on all payments, this is made on the total amount.(If you do not have a current Photo driving license and Address ID a surcharge of £20 will be added to your buyers premium).
