How the price is established

Our specialists are closely familiar with the motor vehicle market and are well informed about current price trends. They will advise you in regard to the price you can expect to realise for your consignment.

The starting price is the initial bid at which you item is offered at auction. You also have the option to define a lower limit (minimum price) below which your item must not be sold.

Wherever possible, the starting price, lower limit and relevant auction are determined at the time we receive a consignment.
