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

Is it something traders can have access to?

Ideally I want to work out if going up to an auction to buy + hammer fees etc is worth it. Bearing in mind you have to do any "prep" that you would miss out on buying from a dealer also.

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

The salvage ones I use are all computerised so you need to be logged in and watching to see what the stuff finishes at, they won't tell you afterwards if you didn't see it.

One of these days I'll program something to log it all. Also no use to use because they're all crashed.

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

You'll be surprised at how expensive the cars are..

I was at a seized car auction in Reading on Saturday and I watched a gold coloured, 11 plate PETROL Q5 with a fuck-off crease in the side of it go for just under 12k (PLUS 20% fees).. Un-fucking-believable as that's pretty much forecourt money..

Everything else was selling for pretty much what its worth, same story everywhere.

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.

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

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

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..

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.

If you've got your kid with you and they like 'that one daddy' you're even more knackered
