Terms & Conditions
NSW Vehicle Wholesale Pty. Ltd. T/A United Auctions NSW ABN: 64 140 971 259
When you logon to the auction you will be asked to accept our auction terms and conditions. These are important and you should read through them. You are buying a vehicle at auction and if your bid is successful and the auctioneer says ‘Sold’ you have entered into a legally binding contract to purchase the vehicle. Please see our terms and conditions
All auction prices, deposits, buyer's premiums, administration fees and payments are in Australian Dollars.
Deposit (Private Buyers)
When you logon to our auction you will be asked to enter your credit card details. We take a pre-authorisation of $500 on your credit card. If you successfully bid on a car we will charge your credit card with $500 as the deposit. If you do not buy a car then the authorisation of $500 will lapse in 3 -5 days. The lapse time depends upon your credit card provider.
Credit card details once entered are passed direct to our credit card provider system using 128SSL Technology. Credit card details are not stored on our web site.
You should be aware that there is no statutory warranty given by the auctioneer for a car bought at auction. Why is this ? The auctioneer is selling on behalf of the owner of the car and is not responsible for the condition of the car. The auctioneer prepares an inspection sheet but does not carry out a full mechanical check. You should take the opportunity to inspect the cars yourself before you bid at our auctions. Our auction is open 6 days a week and you are welcome to visit us and inspect the cars.
Many late model cars carry the manufacturer’s warranty. You should check with the manufacturer to ensure the warranty is transferable.
United Auctions NSW guarantees the title of all cars sold at auction. This is because many finance companies who consign repossessed cars to auctions will not release their lien (or REVS) on the car until they have been paid.
Once you have paid for your car the funds are transferred to the owner or finance company and the lien is lifted.
All our auctions are conducted inclusive of GST. You may from time to time hear the auctioneer announce that ‘No Tax Invoice’ or ‘No GST’. This means that a vehicle has been consigned from a private owner or charity. If you are bidding on behalf of a business you will not be able to claim a GST refund for these vehicles.
The price you pay for your vehicle is your bid price plus a buyers premium and/or an admin fee.
All vehicles have a reserve unless the auctioneer announces that the car has no reserve.
Referred or Submit
If you are the highest bidder and the auctioneer says ‘Submit’ or ‘Referred’ your bid is below reserve and we will then contact the owner of the vehicle. A representative from Valley Motor Auctions will contact you and negotiate a price on your behalf with the owner of the vehicle.
If you verbally agree to purchase the car at a negotiated price we will charge your credit card with the deposit of $500.
If you are the highest bidder and the auctioneer says ‘Sold’ then you have entered into a legally binding contract to purchase the vehicle. Your credit card will be charged with a deposit of $500 and you will receive an invoice by email for the balance of the vehicle. Please confirm the Buyers Premiums and Administration Fees before making payment.
When you have successfully bid and paid a deposit, a UAA representative will contact you to organise a time for you to collect the vehicle.
Unless otherwise stated, vehicles can be collected from our premises at 254 Hannell Street, Maryville NSW 2293.
Can I have my vehicle delivered?
Yes, provided that payment in full has been received. We have a fleet of our own trucks and we also use contractors. Please contact us on 02 4967 9400 to make an arrangement.
Can I withdraw a bid?
No, you cannot withdraw a bid. Please be careful when bidding on the internet.
The auctioneer did not acknowledge my bid
The streaming video and sound is approximately ½ second behind. This may be longer if you have a slow internet connection. Consequently if you bid based upon hearing the auctioneer’s voice the auctioneer may have already taken a bid from the floor. You should bid based upon the bidding button. There is no delay with the bid button.
I can’t log in at the auction time, can I enter an absentee bid.
Yes, logon and view the catalogue listing. Click on the lot and enter your maximum bid. The system will automatically bid on your behalf during the auction.
