Rule number one is be prepared to lose as well. I've got experienced mates in the trade who still pay too much because they've been looking at pictures all week and think they'll have wasted an opportunity and time if they don't bring it home.

Based on what the cars are worth to the private market.. And its the feeling amongst the bidders, as Ian said there are lots of people who would have never been to an auction before bidding to buy their next personal car and they are willing to part with a lot more cash than a trader plus on top of they actually perceive that they are getting a bargain 'because its an auction' even if they end up paying more than the forecourt value..

Queensferry. Full of dads buying their daughter the cheap Clio they'd chosen and had to have.

Constantly what its like, what one did you go to? You see them going through and when you look on ebay classifieds or auto trader you can get the equivalent cheaper buying private. I was bidding on a golf gtd and it ended up going for well more than it was worth with £300 fees on top, people getting romanced by the auction :lol:

I got this impression last time I went to the local straight car one by me, people fighting over stuff that you'd hang on and get another one through later or next week.

Anyone can just walk into BCA and watch, tbh the likes of eBay and gumtree are competitive prices with the auctions, your competing with people with top accounts so pay the least amount of fees and they are proper traders with forecourts so can get more for the car so they do go up more, and it varies depending on what budget your looking at, I've bought about 150 cars through manheim and about 20 through BCA, it attracts a bigger crowd than manheim so reflects in the prices,, to register as a trader you need trade insurance otherwise you have to be a private buyer. The cars tend to go through roughly around the AVERAGE condition price In glass guide. I'll see if I've got an old catalogue somewhere I normally write the price it sold for

Sure you can't just turn up at watch? Assuming its live with real people.

As above really. Interested in seeing what price a certain model of car goes through at roughly.
