What protection do I have if the car is not as I had hoped?

All vehicles sold via auction are sold on an "as seen basis". This means you’re purchasing the vehicle as seen in the listing description, or as seen during a viewing if you were able to make one. Bidding subject to inspection is not allowed, nor is payment subject to an inspection. 

We encourage all bidders to conduct in-depth research before committing to bid. If you have any questions about a vehicle, you can contact the Car & Classic auctions team via the contact button on the listing. If you’d like to arrange a viewing before placing a bid, we can help arrange this for a time that suits both you and the seller. 

By placing a bid on an auction, you’re confirming you’re satisfied with the description of the vehicle and committed to buying it if you win the auction. If you win an auction, you enter into a legal agreement with the seller to pay for and collect the vehicle. 

In the rare occasion that gross misdescription has taken place, Car & Classic will investigate subject to satisfactory evidence being produced. This is not a guarantee that the sale will be cancelled.
