Use the watchlist

Please note that if you add a vehicle to the watch list, we will automatically send you an email or SMS notification on the day of the vehicle auction. This is the easiest way to keep track of the lots that interest you.

Watchlists keep track of the date the lot was sold, and you can view the lot number, description, and current offer. To add a vehicle to your watchlist, all you have to do is click the "Add to watchlist" button when you see items that are attractive to you.


Defining a budget

We recommend that you set a maximum bid amount during Pre-Bidding. Our system will make the lowest bid during the live bidding process, this bid will only increase if necessary to maintain the bidder's position.

If another potential buyer exceeds the maximum amount, we'll send you an email to increase your maximum bid before the Live Auction phase begins.
