What happens if I win an auction and how does payment work?

If you are the highest bidder when the auction ends, you’ll be sent an email and a notification telling you that you’ve won to your Car & Classic profile.

A small non-refundable deposit is taken to secure the vehicle. This amount is deducted from the final balance. The non-refundable deposit is up to 6% of the final price or a minimum deposit amount - whichever is greatest. The minimum deposits are £600/€600 for cars, £420/€400 for bikes or £300/€300 for plates.

Your card will not be charged unless you win an auction. 

The remaining balance must be sent via bank transfer to a secure escrow account.
