Due to COVID-19 safety guidelines there have been a few changes to our viewing process. Salvage vehicles are not available for viewing in person, you can view images of the vehicles online only. Passenger and commercial vehicles are available for viewing by appointment only. All vehicles are locked and can be inspected from the outside only. Trucks, machinery and industrial equipment can be inspected by appointment only. Some locations also offer a virtual inspection via video call, WhatsApp or Messenger. For more information click here.
For specific auction times and dates please refer to the auction catalogues of your closest Manheim location, or you can look at the “Upcoming Events’ on the homepage.
We do not disclose the reserve on any of the items we sell on behalf of our vendors. We cannot disclose a ball park, rough idea or estimate. However you may purchase a ‘Vehicle Auction Report Book’ for $10, which provides a guide on past sales. These are available for the Passenger and Commercial sales in Melbourne, Sydney and Perth.
We have two ways of bidding, in-lane or online:
To bid online you will need to fill out the online registration form and supply the required information. For more information on online bidding please call our Service Desk on 1800 001 278.
To bid in person in the lane, you will need to visit the Manheim operating location and register at reception the morning of the auction. Registration is free and you are required to provide photo ID such as a current passport or drivers licence.
If you are the highest bidder, and the item has reached the reserve price, you will be required to pay a deposit of 10% or $500.00, whichever is greater. Payment can be made by bank transfer, EFTPOS, BPAY or credit card (Visa and MasterCard only and a processing fee of 0.4% applies to credit card transactions). Cash, personal cheques and business cheques are not accepted. You are also required to pay the balance of your purchase by 4pm the following day.
On top of the purchase price of your vehicle you may be required to pay a ‘Buyer Administration Fee’ and a Government charge may apply to BidNow and BuyNow vehicles, which must be paid after the sale of an item. Please check the catalogue or ask the team for fees associated with your vehicle.
For health and safety you are unable to start any of the vehicles. Vehicle engines may be started by a team member on your behalf excluding Melbourne. You can also see and hear the passenger and commercial vehicles running as they go through the auction lane on auction day.
No. If a vendor provides a current RWC and/or current registration this will be advertised on our website and announced prior to the vehicle being auctioned.
Vehicles are auctioned in the condition they are given to us. If a vendor provides a spare key and service books and/or history then the vehicle will be sold with them. We cannot contact vendors to question them about missing keys, books and accessories but if they are supplied with the vehicle, you have the opportunity to view them up until the start of the auction.
Yes. We can auction your car, find out more information by clicking here. You need to contact your nearest Manheim location to arrange a valuation. Contact details can be found on our locations page.
