HOW TO BID
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.
