Can you set a reserve price on the sale?
Do you have to leave your car for viewing for a number of days before the auction or can you just bring it on the day of auction?

Hi Richardsheil

To enter your car in for auction is €50 and the selling fee is 5% plus VAT at 23% of the hammer price.

So if you sell your car for €1,000 the selling fee is €61.50 and you would receive a cheque back for €938.50

Here's a handy guide to our selling fee's ... http://www.merlin.ie/sellersfeeguide

Hi Atlantic Dawn

Yes, you can set a reserve price on your car and this price will be agreed with you prior to entering your car into auction.

We will never sell a car below it's reserve price. If the price is close but not over the reserve price, we will "Provisionally" sell the car which means we will negociate between you the seller and buyer to see if an agreement can be reached.

If the price goes over the reserve price, we will "Sell" the car straight away to the highest bidder.

Regarding to dropping your car in, it is best to leave it with us for a couple of days so we can give it the best opportunity to advertise the car for you. But it's not possible to auction your car if you drop it to us on the day of the auction as we won't have time to get it lined up.

Thanks
Patrick
