Consigning for future auctions - Your car is in demand and we have the facilities to sell it in a safe and responsible manner.
What we can offer you:
- Online, email or telephone valuation and entry into the sale

- Free storage of your vehicle, which will be fully insured while in our care
Sell and buy in confidence - please see the following on how we conduct our current sales program:-
- Vehicles- All vehicles on offer are physically with us at our Easters Court premises so we have inspected both the vehicles themselves and the associated paperwork. Please note- this is a timed-online auction only. The Brightwells’ site at Easters Court is closed to all visitors without appointments until further notice due to Government restrictions.
- Viewing - We will be offering accompanied viewing, strictly on an appointment basis for a maximum of one hour, from Monday to Wednesday the week of the sale. Viewing will ONLY be available to those that have registered for the auction on https://www.brightwellslive.com/ NOTE: Due to current advice and restrictions given by the UK government, viewing may not be possible. Please check with our office.
- Covid 19 Measures - On arrival at our gates, your temperature will be checked and you will be asked to wear gloves and a face covering. Once signed in at our reception, a member of staff will accompany you to the vehicle(s) that you have made an appointment to view. Please make sure you sign out at our reception before leaving our site.
- Buyers Fees -We charge a Buyer’s Premium of 12%+vat on the hammer price of each lot purchased (minimum £150).
- Registration Deposit - A Deposit Reservation of £2,500 is required to participate in the Auction (similar to a hotel booking/hire car). Please note that all Deposit Reservations are to be paid via Sagepay - no deposits will be taken over the phone. Unsuccessful purchasers should note that release of funds can take approximately 3 - 5 days.
- Online fees - We have suspended our usual supplementary online buyers’ fees, so you can buy through the timed auctions at no additional cost. Only the hammer price plus our standard Buyer’s Premium and any associated VAT will apply
- Tips on Bidding -Register early and don’t bid late! And please note the following:
- Bids cannot be withdrawn at any time. All bids are contractually binding.
- If your bid has the value up to or at the reserve, the bid will be taken at it’s maximum to the reserve.
- If the lot has no reserve or if your bid is forced above the reserve by other bidders, then our increment system comes into play and you will see what the next minimum bid can be on the bid page. If your maximum bid is above the increment, the bid will go to the increment, unless someone thereafter forces the bid up to your maximum. Bidders cannot place a bid with the same maximum that someone else has already placed, so a warning will tell you if your bid is the same. You may pay less than your maximum bid if you win, therefore, depending on other bidders. A full guide on our timed auction can be found - HERE.
- Reserve Prices and Provisional Sales - Reserve Prices, Lots Sold With Auctioneer's Discretion and Provisional Sales - Some lots may have reserve prices and the final highest bid on a lot may be subject to acceptance by the seller or at the behest of the auctioneer's discretion, if the reserve is higher. If you are the successful bidder on one or more than one lot that is sold to you, provisionally or outright, the bids are binding and you cannot withdraw any bids - you will be liable for all lots sold to you.
