Every auction has a testing day where candidates can view the cars and check their condition. You can inspect all the vehicles yourself or you can hire a third party inspector to do the job for you. There are even agencies that can do all the auction related work for you. These agents are trained to inspect a vehicle, places bids, and then transfer it to you once the work is done.
For people who don’t have the time or knowledge to take part in an auction, hiring an agent is their best bet. Bidding can be done in person, online, or over the phone. To bid online you will need to register and login to their website. Online bidding is live, so you’ll get updates in real-time. The telephone bidding method is also in real-time and can be a good choice for those who do not have the resources to visit the site of the auction.
