Accident cars sell for low prices, and once repaired, you can save big!
Did you know, if you buy a new vehicle from a manufacturer, and are the first owner, you own a used vehicle (Code 2)? So owning a repaired Code 2 vehicle, is the same as owning a used vehicle from a manufacturer.
Find a repairer in your area who can help you with repair estimates, and deduct that cost from what you are willing to pay for the vehicle. Also keep in mind you will need to tow the vehicle from us to your chosen repairer.
Bidding is an auction term where buyers accept the price being asked for by an auctioneer. To do this on our site, press the GoBid button when you accept the price being shown. Then you will have placed your bid.
A Live Auction is a sale of many cars, as individual items sold in lot or numerical order, where bidders can bid for many lots on the same day, regulated by an Auctioneer.
These exciting auctions are free to watch if you are a first-time buyer. Cars are sold about one a minute, and you can easily see what the prices they sell for…prepare to be shocked, they are cheaper than you think!
If you want to buy a vehicle, you’ll need to Register for the auction, then get your trigger finger ready. It’s a great way to find amazing deals.
Timed Auctions are the sale of an individual vehicle over a few days where bidders can bid against one another without the intervention of an Auctioneer. Timed Auctions may extend automatically as they are about to expire, based on recent bidding activity to allow all bidders a fair opportunity to bid.
To be able to bid on any auction, you need to Sign Up, complete your Registration Status. Public and Trade welcome.
Full payment must be made within 24 hours of a Sales Order being sent to you. You can get our banking details under My Profile > Sales Orders. Please email proof of payment to email@example.com and make sure you have uploaded a copy of your ID (SA Citizens) or Traffic Register and Passport (Foreign Nationals) to your profile.
Vehicles will not be dispatched unless funds have cleared our account. You now have 48 hours to fetch your vehicle from GoBid, or storage may be charged.
If you purchase a Code 2 vehicle, we will do the change of ownership for you and courier the registration documents to the address on your Invoice.
If you purchase a Code 3, you must first fix the vehicle and do a clearance, and then we will do the change of ownership for you.
Change of ownership must be completed before we will give any original registration papers to a buyer. Your change of ownership is included in your Document Handling Fee. Copies of your registration documents can be given to you on request.
If you have not bought anything on auction, you can get a super fast refund by requesting a refund under your profile online. Be sure to update your documents, so there are no delays.
Your bid is not the final price. We charge additional sales fees (Buyers Premium, Doc Handling Fee and VAT). Please see our latest Terms and Conditions for our fees.
A used vehicle can be in a fixed, or damaged state. Did you know, if you buy a new vehicle from a manufacturer, and are the first owner, you own a used vehicle (Code 2)?
