Selling my Car at Auction

Trust us! Selling a car at Newark Motor Auctions is easy

If you’re looking for a simple, hassle-free way to sell your car, you’ll find it at Newark Motor Auctions. There are no missed appointments, no time-wasters, no unanswered adverts, and definitely no awkward haggling. Instead, simply bring your car to us, sit back, relax, and let us take care of everything.

Your vehicle is in good hands. Our friendly team combines dedication and attention to detail and we have over four decades of experience; selling to real people, at a real auction, at real prices. We’ll make sure your car stands the best chance of selling for the best price, whatever its age or value.

How it works – three simple steps

Step 1.) Bring your vehicle to us. You can drop your vehicle off any time between 9am and 4.30pm, Monday to Friday. We keep vehicles in a secure compound until Sale Day, so you can relax knowing it’s in safe hands. If you’re a private seller, we could even collect your vehicle free-of-charge.

Step 2.) Hand over your documents. Remember to bring along all the documentation, including the V5c (log book), as much service history as you can find, along with any previous repair bills, current and past MOTs, etc. Plus, make sure you hand over both sets of keys if you have them – potential buyers look out for this and it can help add value to your vehicle.

Step 3.) Complete the entry form. Next, fill out our simple entry form. It’s short, easy and takes just a few moments. If your vehicle is a 57 plate or younger, you may be able to set an auction reserve price – usually a maximum of the CAP Average price. Vehicles 07 plated or older must be entered with NIL reserve. Once this is done, your car can appear in our next sale.

Pocket the profit.

Many people think selling their car at a motor auction is an alternative to taking the best offer from a car buying service. But it’s not.

The majority of these companies sell most of the cars they purchase through an auction like ours. So whatever price they offer you, they hope to get significantly more at the auction. This is their profit.

So why not do the smart thing and cut out the middle man? By selling your car direct at Newark Motor Auctions, you’ll get the maximum price and pocket all the profit for yourself. Why settle for less?

What does it cost?

A lot of the so-called ‘major’ vehicle auction companies like to hide their costs away, or shroud them in complicated percentages. We’re different!

At Newark Motor Auctions, the fee for selling your car with us is simple and transparent. There’s nothing complicated about it. If your car sells (and ONLY if your car sells), our fee is just 7.5% of the hammer price, plus VAT. Our minimum fee is £40, plus VAT. And that’s it. So please don’t waste your time looking for the pages of small print, because there isn’t any.
