    e)     if the Vehicle is Entered For Sale with a cherished registration plate that is assigned to the Vehicle, the Vendor has all rights, title and interest to sell that cherished registration plate;

    f)      the year registered, or year of manufacture, whichever is earlier, which has been provided by a Vendor is correct (save that when the expression “unknown” or “year as seen” is used – no warranties or representations are given regarding the age of a Vehicle);

    g)     any and all Safety Recalls applicable to the Vehicle have been dealt with in accordance with manufacturer instructions and, where required, any default(s) fully remedied;

    h)     the Vehicle has not been used by the police, used as a taxi, re-registered, imported and/or registered outside of the United Kingdom;

    i)      all documents and information provided by the Vendor are true, accurate and complete in each and every particular.

  3. If the Vendor is in breach of the warranty set out in clause 1(c) above, the Vendor shall only be liable to the Purchaser:
  4. a)    in respect of any negative difference between the Market Value of the Vehicle on the date of Acceptance and the actual price paid for the Vehicle by the Purchaser arising from a discrepancy between any mileage warranted in relation to the Vehicle at the time of Acceptance and the actual mileage of the Vehicle; and

    b)    only then if the discrepancy is at least 1,000 (one thousand) miles or 10% (ten per cent) more than the actual mileage of the Vehicle (whichever is greater); and

    c)     the Purchaser gives notice in writing to Manheim (as agent of the Vendor) of said discrepancy within 3 (three) Business Days of the date of Acceptance (failing which the Vendor will have no further liability in relation to the warranty set out in clause 1(c)) above.

  5. Save as set out in clause 1, no warranties or representations are made by a Vendor regarding the mechanical condition or general quality of the Vehicle.
  6. It is the duty of the Vendor to ensure the Vehicle is insured against third party damage and/or theft whilst on Manheim’s premises or otherwise in Manheim’s control and shall remain insured until risk passes to a Purchaser upon Acceptance.

  12. A Vendor must inform Manheim in writing of the VAT status of a Vehicle prior to that Vehicle being Entered For Sale.

  16. Manheim is not a party to the Contract of Sale and has no liability or responsibility in respect of the Contract of Sale.

  18. Whilst risk in the Vehicle passes to the Purchaser at the time of Acceptance, all ownership and title in the Vehicle remains with the Vendor until it has received the Purchase Price less any Fees.
  19. The Contract of Sale contains the warranties and representations made by the Vendor at clause 1 of these Conditions. The Vendor makes no other warranties or representations about the Vehicle.

It is for the Purchaser to satisfy itself about any Offer it wishes to make for the Vehicle.
  20. Other than as set out in these Conditions, the Vendor expressly excludes any and all representations and warranties about the Vehicle including any which may otherwise be implied into the Contract of Sale by the Consumer Rights Act 2015, any other legislation or by common law (whether this be terms implied by custom and practice or otherwise).
  21. The Vendor shall not be liable to any Purchaser for any special, consequential or indirect losses suffered by a Purchaser in relation to the Vehicle.

  23. At all times the Vendor’s liability to a Purchaser shall not exceed the Purchase Price.
  24. Nothing in the Contract of Sale shall exclude or limit the Vendor’s liability for death or personal injury caused by the Vendor’s negligence or for any fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation.
  25. For the avoidance of doubt, each of the matters set out at clauses 16 to 21 are a part of the Contract of Sale.
  26. Payment of Purchase Price and related matters



    Vendor



  27. Manheim shall in normal circumstances remit the Purchase Price (less its Fees) for the Vehicle to the Vendor within 5 (five) Business Days of:
  28. a)         Manheim having received the full Purchase Price in cleared funds; and

    b)         provided there is no existing dispute in relation to the Vehicle; and

    c)         any and all third party interests in the Vehicle have been settled in full.

  29. The Vendor authorises Manheim to deduct from the Purchase Price:
  30. a)     any and all Fees which are payable by the Vendor to Manheim (whether in respect of the Vehicle to which the Purchase Price relates or in respect of any other services, products or Vehicles);

    b)     any amount equivalent to a third party interest in the Vehicle where Manheim may have been informed that such interest needs to be settled in order to pass good title to the Vehicle to a Purchaser.

  31. Where Manheim has agreed to invoice the Vendor for any Fees rather than deducting them from the Purchase Price, all such Fees shall be due and payable within 7 (seven) days of the date of invoice. The method of payment shall be in accordance with Manheim’s then current operating procedures and practices.
  32. Purchaser



  33. A Purchaser must pay the Purchase Price (and any VAT, where relevant), Buyer’s Premium and any other Fees by 5.00 pm of the next day following Acceptance.

The method of payment shall be in accordance with Manheim’s then current operating procedures and practices.
  34. General



  35. Where the Fees have been paid late by the Purchaser or the Vendor, Manheim shall have the right to charge interest on those Fees at the Rate of Interest. Where the Purchaser has not paid the Purchase Price and the Fees (including the Buyer Premium) by the due date for payment, Manheim shall have the right to resell the relevant Vehicle without notice to the Purchaser and also to suspend or withdraw all of the Purchaser’s trading facilities with Manheim. Any charges or losses incurred on any resale of the Vehicle (including any difference between the Purchase Price and the resale price) will be payable by the Purchaser to Manheim.
  36. Where the Purchaser has purchased more than one Vehicle, Manheim reserves the right not to allow any Vehicle to be removed from its premises until payment in full has been made in cleared funds in respect of all the Vehicles so purchased.
  37. VAT (at the rate prevailing by law from time to time) shall be payable by a Vendor and/or a Purchaser where applicable. Note that Manheim has an agreement with HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) to operate a self-billing system for VAT purposes in respect of Vehicles sold through any Manheim auction on behalf of a Vendor. Under the terms of the agreement with HMRC, Manheim may issue the Vendor with a self-billed invoice and the Vendor must account for any input tax shown on the invoice to HMRC and agree not to issue a VAT invoice in respect of any self-billed invoice issued by Manheim. A Vendor must provide Manheim with details of the VAT number issued by HMRC and notify Manheim immediately if the VAT number is changed or cancelled.
  38. Purchaser’s Duties



  39. Risk in the Vehicle passes to the Purchaser upon Acceptance. It is therefore the Purchaser’s duty to insure the Vehicle from that time.
  40. The Purchaser warrants and represents to Manheim that it has read and agreed all of these Conditions. The Purchaser warrants and represents to Manheim and the Vendor that the exclusions of liability (whether by Manheim or the Vendor) are fair and reasonable.

  44. Where a cherished registration plate is assigned to a Vehicle but not purchased with the Vehicle, the Purchaser:
  45. a)     warrants, represents and undertakes that it will cooperate in the retention of the cherished registration plate by the Vendor; and

  46. The Purchaser warrants, represents and undertakes that it will do all things necessary to ensure that the Vehicle is Roadworthy or, where not Roadworthy, that they are put in a condition so as to be Roadworthy and safe for use before putting them on the road.
  47. The Purchaser shall pay any deposit in respect of the purchase of Vehicles as may be required by Manheim. The deposit shall be returned by Manheim if:
  48. a)     an Offer is withdrawn prior to Acceptance and no Contract of Sale is therefore concluded in respect of the Vehicle; or

    b)     a Vendor has agreed to cancel a Contract of Sale.

    Deposits shall not be refundable where a Purchaser seeks to withdraw an Offer after Acceptance and where clause 37(b) does not apply or where a Purchaser otherwise fails to pay (howsoever arising) for a Vehicle.

  53. a)     all Vehicles only come with those representations and warranties described in clauses 1 and 82 (save where SureCheck applies); and

    c)     Manheim does not conduct any Safety Recall checks; and

    d)     prior to making any Offer in respect of any Vehicle, it will satisfy itself regarding the value and condition of the Vehicle by inspecting them and / or making such other background checks as are prudent and sensible.

  54. Each Purchaser agrees that where it uses Manheim’s IT systems and software, including any facilities made available over Manheim’s website, that it shall do so using all due care and attention and shall use its best endeavours to ensure that no viruses, worms or disabling devices are uploaded onto Manheim’s electronic systems.
  55. Each Purchaser agrees that it will keep confidential, safe and secure any of its buyer account details and any passwords or user names provided to it by Manheim to enable it to have access to Manheim’s systems and a Purchaser further agrees that it shall be liable for and shall indemnify and hold Manheim harmless on demand against any costs, liabilities, damages, expenses, fees (including legal fees) and losses suffered by Manheim by reason of any third party use of the prospective Purchaser’s account details, user names or passwords.
  56. Each Purchaser agrees to fully and effectively indemnify Manheim and hold Manheim harmless on demand against any losses, costs, damages, expenses or liabilities (including legal fees on a full indemnity basis) suffered by Manheim by reason of the prospective Purchaser being in breach of these Conditions including under the Contract of Sale.

    b)     if a sufficiently material misrepresentation has been made, to rescind in accordance with clause 49(a) or alternatively (and in all other circumstances where not a sufficiently material misrepresentation) to retain possession of the Vehicle and claim for any losses directly suffered by the Purchaser (subject to the time limits set out in clause 50 below and subject at all times to the restrictions set out in clause 2 and exclusions and caps on liability set out at clauses 18 to 20).

  64. The time limit for bringing a claim for breach of warranty or representation under clause 1 is 3 (three) days from the date of Acceptance, unless it relates to title in which case it is 6 (six) months from the date of Acceptance.

    c)     Manheim has paid to the Purchaser any amount pursuant to clause 83 and where the Vehicle is to be returned to Manheim.

  89. Vendors and Purchasers agree that Manheim shall have a lien on any Vehicle in respect of any monies due to it from the Vendor or the Purchaser (as relevant).
  90. Manheim may retain possession of the Vehicle until a Purchaser is able to prove that it has paid the Purchase Price in full and cleared funds and, where relevant, any agent acting on behalf of a Purchaser can prove he has the requisite authority to act on the Purchaser’s behalf.

  102. Buyer’s Premium

    b)         the Vehicle has not been the subject of an Insurance Total Loss and/or is a Stolen Recovery (unless disclosed otherwise);

    c)         the odometer of any Vehicle (or the vehicle’s total mileage if this is provided) if noted to be warranted as correct on any sales catalogue or other written description of the Vehicle will be true and accurate.

  105. In the event that any of the warranties and representations given at clause 82 is proven to be untrue (the Purchaser having provided evidence reasonably satisfactory to Manheim), then a Purchaser shall have the right to return the Vehicle to Manheim and to be repaid the Purchase Price provided always that:
  106. a)         in respect of clause 82(a), the Purchaser has notified Manheim in writing within 6 (six) months of Acceptance bringing a claim under clause 82; and

    d)         in respect of each of clause 83(a) to 83(c), the Purchaser has not by its own acts or omissions damaged or tampered with the Vehicle.

    Additional Services

       

    Delivery/Collection    



  107. If Manheim is requested to collect or deliver any Vehicles, Manheim will use reasonable efforts to deliver and/or collect the Vehicles within any time agreed with the Vendor or Purchaser. Time shall not be of the essence and Manheim shall have no liability for late or non delivery or collection on the date and time that has been agreed.

    b)     a Vendor withdraws a vehicle from auction or sale; or

    c)     a Purchaser leaves the Vehicle on Manheim’s premises for more than 3 (three) days after Acceptance (including where the reason for them being left on Manheim’s premises is that the Purchaser has failed to pay the Purchase Price in respect of those Vehicles); or

    d)     a Vendor or Purchaser requests that Vehicles be left on Manheim’s premises; or

    e)     Vehicles are left on Manheim’s premises for more than 3 (three) days (for whatever reason) except where Manheim has agreed terms for the provision of storage services (in which event those terms shall apply); and

    where storage fees are chargeable in accordance with this clause 87, storage fees will be charged (unless agreed otherwise) from Acceptance (or in respect of Vendors from the point of delivery to Manheim) up to and including the date the Vehicles are removed.

  113. Unless agreed otherwise, risk in such Vehicle shall at all times remain with the Vendor and/or Purchaser (whichever is relevant). Where Vehicles have been left or abandoned on Manheim’s premises, the Vendor and/or the Purchaser (whichever is relevant) hereby authorise Manheim to sell the Vehicles.

Prospective Purchasers rely on all such information at their own risk.
  121. It is for Purchasers to satisfy themselves as to the quality, condition and provenance of the Vehicle through its own inspection and enquiries and Manheim shall accept no liability for any information prepared by it (in particular, where it is dependant and reliant on information provided by third parties and, for the avoidance of doubt, Manheim does not undertake to check or scrutinise such information).
  122.

  130. No other person except for the parties to these Conditions shall have any right under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 to rely upon or enforce any term of these Conditions.

  131. These Conditions contain all the terms which are agreed in relation to the sale and purchase of a Vehicle and supersede any prior written or oral agreements, representations or understandings between the parties relating to the Vehicle.

  132. Without prejudice to any other right or remedy, Manheim shall be entitled but not obliged at any time to set off any liability of the Vendor or Purchaser owed to Manheim against any liability of Manheim to the Vendor or Purchaser as relevant (and howsoever arising and whether any such liability is present or future, liquidated or unliquidated).
  133. If any clause, sub-clause, or any part of a clause or sub-clause, of these Conditions is found by any court, tribunal, administrative body or authority of competent jurisdiction to be illegal, invalid or unenforceable than that provision will, to the extent required, be severed from these Conditions and will be ineffective. All other provisions of these Conditions will remain in full force and effect with such modifications as may be necessary to give effect to the remaining Conditions.
  134. Any notices shall be made by either email, facsimile, telephone or regular mail at Manheim’s election.
  135. Both the Purchaser and the Vendor agree not to assign their rights and obligations under these Conditions.

It has been designed to protect online privacy by making consumers aware of how personal information about them is collected by websites, and enabling them to choose whether or not they want it to happen. Please read on for more information.

What is a cookie? 
A cookie is a small piece of data that is sent from our web server to your browser, which is saved on the hard drive of your computer, smartphone or other device.

Permanent Cookies
These are stored on your computer and are not deleted when the browser is closed. This is so they can retain your preferences for a particular website, allowing those preferences to be used in future browsing sessions.
Permanent cookies can be used to analyse users' surfing behaviour within the Site, so that we can improve our services and allows us to prioritise our enhancements to the Site.

• to keep you logged in for the duration of your visit, which enables you to complete certain actions on the Site, for example, move from one page to another within the Site, adding cars to a shortlist, using watchlists, viewing catalogues and using Simulcast.
• store your preferences or your user name and password so that you do not need to input these every time you visit the Site;
• customise elements of the layout and/or content of the pages of the Site for you;
• collect statistical information about how you use the Site so that we can improve the Site; 
• gather information about the pages on the Site that you visit, and also other information about other websites that you visit, so as to place you in a "market segment"; and
• enable basic web traffic analysis using Google Analytics.
We also use some cookies from trusted third party sources to enable us to provide you with certain features on the Site, for example our live chat facility which uses cookies to enable the chat software to work.

Most web browsers automatically accept cookies but, if you prefer, you can change your browser to prevent that or to notify you each time a cookie is set.
