Bid for Cars Online, 24/7

Ever wondered how simple things would be if you could go online and bid for cars and commercial vehicles, any time of day? Well, our timed Bid Events let you do exactly that. Vehicles are listed online with the Bid Event start and end time shown, before the auction begins take a look at the detailed photos of the vehicle alongside specification and condition reports. Then get ready to place bids against the clock 24/7, during the scheduled Bid Event dates and times, for the vehicles you want. If you’re outbid, you can bid again any time before the listing ends, at which point the highest bidder usually wins. We think this is the simplest and most convenient way to buy a car.

Bid When it’s Convenient for You. It’s That Simple

Manheim’s Online Director Dave Parry loves the drama of online Bid Events and shares a little insight into how they work. "Quite simply, you can bid whenever you want, from wherever you happen to be. Twenty-four hours a day," he explains. "We keep you fully informed about how the sale’s going too, so if you’re ever outbid you’re always first to know.
"You choose how to bid; you can compete with other bidders bid for bid, or go straight in with your maximum offer and see if anyone goes higher. "Just like on consumer auction sites, some bidders use strategy and wait until the very last seconds before placing their bids."

Helpful Hints for buying with Bid Events

We’re keen to help make sure you get the most from each of our online buying channels. So to quickly get you up to speed, we’ve put together a number of Top Tips for using our timed Bid Events.

These should give you an insight into how this convenient way-to-buy works, plus give you the confidence to begin bidding and buying online in next to no time at all.

•    Check how long the listing is for – vehicles are available to buy online for a fixed period of time
•    Add vehicles to your watch list so you can easily keep track of any other bids during the listing – we’ll let you know when bids are made
•    Decide how you want to bid. You can start small then compete bid for bid with other potential buyers until the auction ends
•    Alternatively, you can place your highest bid. Other bidders won’t see your maximum but will still have to place incremental bids until they outbid you
•    Remember, you can bid at any time – the vehicles are online 24/7 for as long as the listing lasts
•    Look out for the listings which also appear with a Buy Now price – if the price is right you can shortcut the bidding process and buy with a click
