We aim to make buying a vehicle at Newark Motor Auctions as simple and stress-free as possible. To help, we’ve answered some of the most common questions here. Feel free to get in touch if you need to know more.

Do I need to register and do I need a bidding number?

No, you don’t need to register to bid and we don’t use bidding numbers. To bid, just make sure you’re in the hall and make yourself known to the auctioneer by raising your hand. Don’t be subtle. The auction hall is a busy place, with lots going on. So be bold and confident.

How long can I leave the vehicle once it’s paid for?

Although we prefer vehicles to be paid for and taken away as soon as possible, we understand that occasionally this is not practical. Vehicles can be left in our compound at the owner’s risk (responsibility falls to the purchaser as soon as the hammer falls) and we won’t charge storage.If you’re leaving a vehicle with us, please also leave the keys as we may need to move it.

You can read our full terms and conditions here.

If I sell a vehicle, how quickly will I receive my funds?

Once your vehicle has been paid for, we will begin the payment method via your bank. You should receive your payment within 5 - 7 working days

Can I bid online?

Yes. 3 out of 4 of our auctions are also broadcast across the internet via our LiveBid system. To use this, simply register as a LiveBid user. You can then watch and hear the auction on your mobile, tablet or PC as it happens, and bid on selected LiveBid vehicles with a click – as if you were there in the auction hall itself.

What should I do if the vehicle I purchase has no documents?

On rare occasions, documents can be sent to us after sale. If this happens, we will happily forward them on to you. However, the quickest way to obtain a V5 is by filling out a V62 Form at your local post office. A fee of £25 may be payable.
