“Junk status Cars , insider bidding !”

Written on: 22/07/2014 by Yamilet1962 (1 review written)

Nearly every car had a fault here , many carefully hidden to fool the amateur. Went yesterday , and one car sold for £2650 , and then broke down ! Had to be pushed of the stage - what a joke ! Bid one one car , a 08 vectra , 59K , for £1100. Winning bid for 2 mins , then insider bidding happened , so obvious , so corrupt ! Will NEVER go again , please I beg you , do not RISK it!… Read Full Review

“I bought an old BMW from there. The car overheated...”

Written on: 07/02/2014

I bought an old BMW from there. The car overheated within 5 minutes of leaving site. They must have known about the problem, because it was happening so quickly, but they hid it. I have often seen the same cars going through week after week, despite being sold. I'm not sure whether this is because staff are bidding on them, or because they break down and the new owners put them straight back through to try to get some of their money back. You may be lucky enough to get a good car from there… Read Full Review

The cars don't belong to the auction, they sell them on behalf of the vendors. You could just have easily bought this car from a private seller and had the same amount of comeback, i.e. None. You should learn a little about how to appraise cars properly before you buy at auction, or indeed anywhere other than a main dealer.

“Good Value ”

Written on: 19/09/2013

Bought my son his first car, a fiat panda, milage was a little high at 100k but it seems fine. Staff helped me find the car, they printed a list of cars in my £1500 budget, I would be back to buy again I think. My boy has had the panda two weeks and its been great no problems, I did have a service done and a once over by mechanic. I may be looking for a diesel and I will be back. … Read Full Review

I agree , the place is a disgrace.
There should be some sort of watchdog to hold them responsible.
They should be SHUT DOWN !

“Good Value & Experiance”

Written on: 30/05/2012

Well its been a while since I went to an auction. I visited newport aucxtions a couple of times to see what prices the cars were making. I had a budget and needed to get an estate for work. Anyway after two visits I saw a volvo estate diesel on an 06 plate. I bifd on it and the staff needed to contact the owner with my bid as it was less than they wanted. I was asked if I wanted to increase my bid by another £100 to win the car. I took another look and decided to go for it. I have now… Read Full Review

“'great first car'”

Written on: 30/05/2012

I must say that I was cautious about using a car auction, as I had never used one before. I had a look at the website before attending the auction which was great, as it has detailed reports of each vehicle so you know what you need to know - I found a few vehicles I was interesed in - (I was only after a small runaround as a first car for my daughter). I attended a sale on a Friday evening! I asked the lady at the window for reserves, unfortunately they wouldn't give me reserves but asked… Read Full Review

“First time bidder”

Written on: 13/12/2011

Went to an evening auction after being recommended by a freind, I only had a limited budget and the staff helped me find a vehicle within my price range. The bidding process was very easy, placed a 10% deposit then waited for an answer of the owner. I paid in full and drove it away the same night. The staff were friendly, bidding was easy and the price was good. Would definitely use again… Read Full Review

i have been successful in just one car out of the three cars i have purchased from the auction. Its not fair that traders use this auction as a means to get rid of their wrecked or faulty cars. I think in my opinion, they should only receive vehicles that are road worthy from clients. I paid over 5 thousand pounds for a car and as we speak, i am still in the garage trying to sort out what the problem is. Its not fair what they are doing. I will be taking up this issue to the police asap because i am beginning to find this whole auction thing a sham.
