Please ensure that information submitted on the vehicle entry form is correct and signed. Commission will be charged at the full rate on sales lost due to incorrect statements.

Vehicles of 9 years and older are 'sold as seen' without a reserve, unless by prior arrangement with the auctioneer.

All vehicle entries must be entered and paperwork completed within 30 minutes of the start of the sale.
