SVS Car Auction Buying Service
We offer an unbeatable car auction buying service with no membership or sign-up fees and vehicle delivery straight to your door.
We pay much lower buyer premiums compared to a private buyer at the same auctions. Buying cars at auction with us means you are saving money before the bidding has even started.
This service is for private and trade buyers. Please see our fees and more info below.
We will find you your next car for FREE!
You don’t need to pay us anything until you are ready to go ahead and bid on the car you want, only then do we ask for our fee to be paid!
We will provide you with a list of cars including auction prices via email for you to look through.
When you see something you like the look of we then provide more detailed information along with photos and mechanical/condition reports to make sure everything is fine before we bid on the car for you.

How Our Car Auction Buying Service Works
Finding the right car
We can offer a wide selection of the best cars to buy at auction within a matter of minutes. All we need from you to start this search is some basic information on what it is you are looking for (Make, Model, Age, Colour etc).
Once we have this information we then search all auction companies’ sites in the UK and compile a list of suitable matches with prices included which we then send to you via email to look through.
If you have already found a vehicle at auction that you are interested in purchasing all we need to start the process is the registration number and the name of the auction company. We will then provide you with the trade price for that vehicle and any other information you may require.
If you would like to be able to buy cars at auction in your own time we can set you up on our system which will give you access to search the auction companies’ websites for vehicles at your own leisure.
We don’t request our fees for using the car auction buying service until a suitable vehicle has been found that you want us to bid for on your behalf.
Once a suitable match has been found which falls within your maximum budget we can then move on to the next step of the service.
An agreement is made between ourselves and the customer. First, the customer specifies their maximum bid for a specific vehicle at auction. We then send an email with terms and conditions and request payment of our fees prior to us bidding on any vehicle at auction.
On the day of the auction, a link will be sent via email which allows you to watch the auction live and watch us bid on your vehicle and also gives you an exclusive view of all other vehicles going through the auction sale on that day.
If we succeed in securing the winning bid, we’ll send you the invoice directly from the auction house and the customer then pays the total cost to the auction house via the auction company’s own online payment system within 24 hours of winning the bid.
Furthermore, we don’t request any money except our fees for using the car auction buying service. Your money is never at risk this way.
Once payment has been made you immediately become the legal owner of the vehicle. We then arrange for you to collect the vehicle at a time that suits you best (within 3 days of the auction ending) or for the vehicle to be delivered to your door by the auction company’s own delivery service at an extra cost (approximately £150), delivery takes 5 to 10 working days.
Consequently, everything is as clear and fair as possible with no hidden fees added. Terms and conditions apply.

Insurance is not required to collect a vehicle from auction or to have a vehicle delivered.
Additionally, the auction house does not request any insurance documentation to collect a vehicle.
Furthermore, insurance is the customer’s own responsibility and we recommend having this in place before collecting the vehicle.
Once a vehicle has been paid for we can then arrange a collection slot for you in any name you specify.
Vehicles can be collected within 3 hours of securing winning the bid in most cases. The longest this could take is approximately 24 hours with some auction companies and sites.
Additionally, a valid photo ID is requested in the name of the person specified on the collection slot by the auction company in order for a vehicle to be released.
We can arrange delivery to your door within 5 to 10 working days via the auction company’s in-house delivery service at an average cost of approximately £150.
