CLASSIC CAR AUCTIONS SELLER'S GUIDE FOR LIVE ONLINE AUCTIONS

Live online auctions allow interested parties to purchase the vehicle of their choice from the comfort of their own home. 

Dedicated, one-to-one virtual viewings of the cars will be available prior to the auction. Please contact the member of staff listed on the car of interest to arrange this. Viewing the cars in person is permitted to specialists who have been instructed to inspect vehicles of interest on your behalf and members of the trade (in accordance with the latest Government guidance). Please contact us on 01926 640888 to arrange this.

We want to make selling your car as easy and straight-forward as possible. By following the simple step-by-step guide below you will be able to submit your vehicle(s) to CCA for inclusion in a forthcoming auction.  Once submitted you will receive a confirmation e-mail and a follow-up phone-call from one of our specialists.  Once all the details have been established and entry is confirmed, you can be assured that your car will be marketed to the widest and most relevant audience available.

VALUATION

We assess the value of all entries based on the information you provide including their condition.  During your discussions with our specialists, if our estimate meets your expectations and you would like to proceed, then the terms of sale are confirmed and your car will be entered into one of our auction events.

ENTRY FEES AND CHARGES

A cataloguing fee is charged when you confirm your entry into one of our auctions. 

This fee is £250 +VAT. It covers photography, script writing, video, worldwide marketing, inclusion in our e-catalogue and viewing by appointment (subject to Government advice regarding Covid-19) for the week preceding the sale. This listing is subject to availability, please consult with your classic car consignor.

The earlier you consign your vehicle into the sale the more marketing we will be able to carry out on your behalf, increasing the interest in your vehicle.

Should your vehicle sell at auction, we will charge our standard seller's commission of 5% +VAT based on the hammer price your entry has achieved, with a minimum charge of £350 +VAT.

DELIVERY

You will need to arrange for the vehicle to be delivered our viewing location, Hall 2, Stoneleigh Park, Stoneleigh, Kenilworth, CV8 2LZ in advance of the viewings.

The vehicle should arrive in a presentable and saleable condition. If your vehicle is deemed to require further cleaning/presentation you will be notified prior to any work being carried out. There will be a charge deducted from net sale proceeds. 

For those sellers who require assistance with transportation we have a logistics partner (E M Rogers) who will be happy to provide a quote.

Please ensure all history files, documentation and V5c’s are delivered with the vehicle. Any private plates not included in the sale must be put on retention.  

AUCTION DAY

Due to Covid-19, we are unable to welcome you into the auction hall at present. However, we will be live streaming all of our auctions via our YouTube channel so you can watch from the comfort of your home.

The buyer becomes responsible for the vehicle on the fall of the hammer, however we recommend keeping the vehicle insured until you have received payment.

Funds will be paid to your bank account via BACS transfer within 14 working days of the auction date (subject to cleared funds being received) but we aim to pay out within ten working days. During this time the funds are kept in a dedicated client account.
