“Be very careful or you could die”

Written on: 12/11/2013 by Auctionman (1 review written)

This place is dangerous for a number of reasons. The cars are usually rubbish and far too expensive. The auctioneer will raise the price with 'ghost' bids from bidders that don't exist. The fees are beyond silly. They even charge you more for paying in cash. The main auction hall fills with exhaust fumes as there is no ventilation and you get carbon monoxide poisoning. The food in the restaurant is terrible and uncooked chips are their favourite. And the drivers moving the cars about are… Read Full Review

“Shiny metal - Sick engines; Extortionate Auction Fees”

Written on: 24/11/2012 by ReginaldTreacy (1 review written)

Non-trade buyers stay well clear! Hundreds of knackered engines here; the trade guys know the models to avoid and get much lower fees. Private buyers get totally thrashed with sky high fees. A lot of vehicles here with terminal £1000+ engine problems - if you could check the MOT advisories you wouldn't bid on anything. Remember - its only a bargain if you've got a mechanic mate who can fix it for parts cost. Labour costs for engine re-builds will be £800 to £1000. Stay away… Read Full Review

“Excellent service, professional ”

Written on: 22/11/2012 by Dino3428 (1 review written)

After speaking to a local garage who told mecwhatto look for, bought a fantastic Lexus from Central Car Auction. I found the staff very helpful and friendly, particularly the staff in the office, if buying a car from an auction you must speak to someone who can tell you how it all works and what to look for....this is my second car from Central… Read Full Review

“ALWAY CHECK ENGINE MANAGEMENT LIGHTS”

Written on: 03/10/2012

Buyers be very very careful. Do what the dealers so - wait for staff to start the car up and ask to peer in at the dash to see what lights are up. This is VERY important as many cars here are the one REJECTED by Webuyanycar and others. Lots of faulty engines here. Very high fees for private buyers - who pay indemnity AND buyers premium. So £1300 WILL cost a private buyer circa £1500 with all the VAT added in to the fees. My advice - use a dealer and test drive the hell out of car and then… Read Full Review

In the main a dumping ground for Scottish main dealers and the Glasgow car trade.Lots of polished metal and glass but underneath lurks the tails of seriously faulty cars doctored to look and drive all 200yrds at Central the staff are trained to put lights out i.e engine management lights a.b.s !!! equipped with low level code readers worn engines doctored with cheap engine addatives so buyer beware and read the small print very carefully. Very well promoted modern auction hall and some… Read Full Review
