I'd love to head over some day and see how it all works. I've gone once before but couldn't figure it out.

And all of the cars are after being checked for this (motorcheck) by Merlin anyway.

Any car I sold there before wasn't checked

I sent in two cars recently that were subsequently found to be clocked on their way from the UK, yet they were sold with the displayed milage, and no note saying "milage unverified" or similar.

On their way from the UK?
You brought them in, on their way they were found to be clocked and you sent them to auction?

What merlin are you referring to?

No, I put them in the auction and each failed to meet the reserve, so I ended up selling to a garage directly. It was only after the auction that I ran a history check - I wanted to sell privately and give the check to the new owner, but they turned out to be clocked (both to around 85000 miles)

I appreciate what you are saying, but it's not fair to say things when I can't defend ourselves.
