LiveBid –

We are #Sociallydistanced and #CovidSAFE

We are pleased to announce that our auctions have now resumed inside our auction hall. We are still working hard to make sure both you and our team are safe during your visit….... #CarAuctionsMadeSAFE.

We appreciate that you may not feel comfortable returning to an auction environment. That’s why we’re making it both safe & Easy to buy a car from Newark Motor Auctions. If you are a trade buyer, you can bid whichever way you feel SAFE. You can buy in the auction hall, On your mobile device, or from the comfort of your own home using our live bid system. *Please note that our live bid system is only available for trade buyers. If you are a private buyer you may attend any of our auctions in person.

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 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 image appraisals 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.

All of our auctions feature the LiveBid system, however you will need to be a member of the trade to utilise the system.

- 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 day or within 24 hours. 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.
