What do I need to know?
Once the hammer confirms the sale the bidder reports to the Rostrum Clerk, signs for the vehicle and pays the appropriate deposit.
*see methods of payment in How do I pay section.
The Rostrum Clerk will confirm if the car has been bought outright or provisionally.
If bought outright
The balance is payable at the payments window where you will also collect your documents and keys.
N.B. All sold vehicles need to be paid for in full and removed from WOMA premises by 2.0pm on the day following the sale. Failure to comply will result in a daily storage charge. If the vehicle is still unclaimed by the date of the next sale, the vehicle will be re-entered for auction and the deposit forfeited.
If bought provisionally
This means that your bid has not reached the sellers reserve price. The deposit must still be paid and our enquiries team will make contact with the seller as soon as possible and negotiate on your behalf.
WHEN BIDDING, PLEASE BEAR IN MIND THAT MANY COMPANIES AND AUTHORITIES ARE NOT CONTACTABLE OUT OF NORMAL OFFICE HOURS AND THE NEGOTIATIONS WILL NEED TO TAKE PLACE THE FOLLOWING DAY. IF THESE NEGOTIATIONS ARE UNSUCCESSFUL YOUR DEPOSIT WILL BE REPAID IN FULL.
Sold with a trial
You place a deposit and a driver with trade plates will take you for a road trial. Major defects such as engine, gearbox, clutch, drivetrain and any system warning lights are checked during the trial.
If the car fails due to a major defect after the trial, but within one hour of the sale closing, your money will be refunded.
Purchasers should be satisfied that paintwork and bodywork condition are acceptable prior to bidding.
N.B. Trials can only be taken on the sale evening if the vehicle is bought outright. If it is a provisional bid ,which is accepted the following day a one hour trial period can be taken.
SOLD AS SEEN
The buyer accepts the vehicle as seen and WOMA is not responsible for any defects found after purchase. The only exception to this rule is if there is an error in the printed vehicle description information.
Please check the following:
- WOMA terms and conditions, displayed in the auction hall or available from the enquiries office.
- The vehicle details displayed on the entry form or vehicle windscreen before bidding.
- The V.I.N. number (chassis number) on the car corresponds with the number printed on the V5.
