Park Village Auctions now offers people who want to sell their vehicles privately a safe and reliable way to sell it at an auction. Renowned for their extremely successful auctions of repossessed vehicles, Park Village Auctions is one of the distinguished vehicle auction houses in the country. They are now ready to share this expertise and success with private vehicle owners.
Individuals who want to sell their vehicles at a Park Village public vehicle auction will have access to the company's existing regular buyer database as well as new buyers reacting to the company's effective online advertising campaigns. In addition, people selling their vehicles through a Park Village public vehicle auction will be able to see the vehicle being sold in real time from their office or home, ensuring a process that is convenient, transparent and safe.
"We have identified a need in the market for an alternative, safe and easy method for the public to sell vehicles. Selling a vehicle privately involves a major security risk as well as a frustrating process because the owner has to do all the paperwork, find a buyer through advertising and run the risk of the buyer taking the car but not making a valid payment," says Graham van Niekerk, Vehicle Disposable Manager at Park Village Auctions.
Public auctions are simple and easy to use. All you need to do is give the auction house your reserve or minimum price and take the vehicle to the auction premises four or five days before the auction so that it can be cleaned, photographed and viewed by interested buyers. Park Village Auctions then advertises the vehicle on your behalf online.
The reserve price of a vehicle can be determined by taking the trade value of the vehicle and adding or subtracting the value of aspects such as overall condition, age, mileage, factory extras and previous accident damage.
Using the public auction service of Park Village Auctions gives you the peace of mind to sell your car through a reputable auction house with a large number of weekly buyers that is increased by the online audience from all over the country. The bigger audience increases the chance of selling your car while Park Village Auctions handles the financial side and carries the risk for a minimal set-fee. Payment is made by electronic transfer after the buyer pays.
Vehicles are kept in a covered warehouse with camera surveillance and fulltime onsite security while keys are not kept onsite. Vehicle movement is kept to an absolute minimum and test driving is not allowed. The vehicle will only be started on the auction day by authorised staff. Members of the public never have access to the keys.
All vehicles display a DEKRA report, which was previously known as the AA report, on the windscreen with details of the technical inspection of your vehicle to help prospective buyers decide and keep the process honest, fair and transparent.
