LiveBid –

We are #Sociallydistanced and #CovidSAFE

Please note that at the current time, our Livebid system is available and free to all during these unprecedented times...#CarAuctionsMadeSAFE.

For the foreseeable future our auctions will be running differently. A first of its kind bringing all the excitement of a traditional auction, outdoors and online. These measures have been introduced for both customer and staff safety.

There will be no access to the auction hall during this period. Our sales will be held outside (Please come prepared for the weather conditions) using the two main runways through the yard and car park. There will be clear social distancing markings on the floor for each customer to use during the sale. Customers will have the opportunity to bid using their mobile phones via the ‘Live Bid App`. To register please follow the ‘live bid` link on our website and leave your details as prompted along with ID such as a driving licence or utility bill/bank statement.

How does it work?

It’s simple! First, register as a LiveBid user by completing our short registration form here. You can also download our FREE app “Newark Motor Auctions” from your app store and register there.

Next, log in and you’re ready to go.


We aim to make your auction experience as easy as possible. To help, you can view the LiveBid vehicles online. We will upload the vehicle details, a selection of images, plus our own inspection report. Please note this method will be adopted for both Monday and Tuesday morning auctions. As we have made our site #CovidSAFE, adhering to all social distancing guidelines we would love to see you here as the auction is conducted. On a Tuesday evening, and Thursday. One image per each vehicle will be uploaded only.

Remember, this report is a guide only and will include any obvious issues that we have identified.

Alternatively, for a more detailed and in-depth assessment of the car, call us on 01636 671167 – we’ll be happy to give you a personal appraisal.


Once you’ve logged on and you’re connected to LiveBid, you’ll be able to watch the auction live. You’ll see the cars as they appear in the auction hall, and you’ll hear our auctioneer too.

Many of our auctions feature the LiveBid system. Not all vehicles in every auction will available to bid and buy using the LiveBid. However, those cars which are available will be clearly identified, giving you plenty of time to prepare your bid. LiveBid is available at the following auctions:

- Our weekly Monday Pitch Potential Auction features Approximately 80 Vehicles 2010 or Newer, and sub 80k Miles. All of these vehicles will be offered on our LiveBid system.

Stay updated! We’ll keep you informed with regular emails containing information regarding our LiveBid auctions.


Once you have made your bid and been successful, a minimum 10% deposit or £100 (whichever is greater) is payable on the fall of the hammer. We will contact you on the Number provided and ask to take payment for your deposit..

Please remember, your deposit MUST be paid within 10 minutes of our request, in order to secure the vehicle. Failure to do this will result in the vehicle being re-offered for sale. The remaining balance must be paid in full before your car can be taken away.


After successfully bidding for a vehicle, payment in full should be made on the night. You’re then free to take the vehicle away.

As soon as you have bought the vehicle, its responsibility immediately becomes yours. All vehicles are left on our site at the owners’ risk. This also applies to any cars left in our car park. Our car park is cleared on a weekly basis and any cars left in the car park will be disposed of, regardless of age or condition.

Storage fees apply after 7 days, at a rate of £10 per day and per night. You will avoid these charges by taking your vehicle promptly.
