PICK­LES con­ducts more that 150 auc­tions each month around Aus­tralia, in cap­i­tal cities and some regional cen­tres.

At a Pick­les auc­tion, you first need to reg­is­ter to re­ceive a buyer num­ber. This can be done on-site, or on-line. If you haven’t been to an auc­tion be­fore, Pick­les has staff on hand to ex­plain how it works and an­swer your ques­tions.

When the ob­ject of your de­sire comes up, if you want to make a bid, just stick up your hand. If you’re the high­est bid­der, you can pay your de­posit — usu­ally a min­i­mum of $1000 — by cash, bank cheque or EFT­POS.

You can drive the car away when you have paid the bal­ance.

If you can’t make it to a Pick­les auc­tion, you can also buy a car as a live, on­line bid­der. You first have to down­load the Pick­les Live App, or soft­ware, set up a My Pick­les ac­count with your credit card de­tails and reg­is­ter for the spe­cific auc­tion where you want to bid.

Pick­les will then send you a con­fir­ma­tion email, after which you can scroll through the cars and use the Bid but­ton to bid on the one you want. If you’re suc­cess­ful, a de­posit is au­to­mat­i­cally taken from your credit card.
