If pos­si­ble, go to a few auc­tions be­fore bid­ding The auc­tion en­vi­ron­ment can be over­whelm­ing if you’re not used to it, so it’s best to ac­cli­ma­tise – then you can con­cen­trate when it comes to bid­ding.

Buy, then learn, the cat­a­logue Use the on­line cat­a­logue to se­lect the car or cars you’re in­ter­ested in, but the printed cat­a­logue makes it eas­ier to mem­o­rise the lot num­bers of the mo­tors you’re in­ter­ested in. It’ll help you keep pace with the sale – it’s easy to get dis­tracted by bid­ding on other cars.

View­ing Spend time care­fully check­ing out the car, but don’t for­get to look at oth­ers, too – the idea is to en­sure no one knows you are a ma­jor player for a spe­cific car.

de­cide your fig­ure and don’t go above it. If you’re still in and the pro­fes­sional deal­ers have al­ready backed out, then you stand a good chance of win­ning.
