As a private seller, only your username is visible on the listing. We encourage buyers to view an item before bidding. There is a button on each listing for registered users to contact you.

When you submit an item, we ask for a description and a photo gallery. (You supply 3 photos first, then unlimited photos and media and a more comprehensive description when we agree to list the item) We provide a guide on how to take great vehicle photos – It’s easy to follow and it will have you snapping like a pro! There is room for a short video on each listing too.

Yes, registered users may wish to view your vehicle before they place a sealed bid, once they have agreed to our buyer’s contract. They will contact you directly to arrange a mutually acceptable time to view the item at your premises. There is a button on each sealed bid auction and fixed listing for registered users to contact you.

We believe that with no seller fees and no seller commission, we’ve created a win-win service. To qualify, you agree to allow your sealed bid auction to run the full duration of the auction. Eclectic Auctions reserves the right to end a sealed bid auction early if we deem necessary.

We believe that with no seller fees and no seller commission, we’ve created a win-win service. To qualify, you agree to honour the sale as per your seller’s contract and sell to the winning bidder for the final sealed bid price.

Yes, that’s fine. However, our terms and conditions state that once your listing goes live, you do not end the auction early and honour the sale to the winning bidder. SEE FAQ – Do I have to sell to the winning bidder?

We take a secure Stripe holding deposit from all registered users before they may bid on any item. This holding deposit converts into a (5%+VAT) buyer’s commission upon winning an item. This process assists both the buyer and seller to reassure that the auction will conclude successfully.

Pre-auction can be up to a week. It allows for a car to be viewed with plenty of time before an auction starts.

Yes, you can. We always recommend placing your vehicle in pre-auction status first, but it is optional.

The owner of the vehicle must have their name registered on the V5 and needs to be the person who creates an account and submits the vehicle for auction.
