If you are familiar with motor auctions, or you're ready to come along and make a purchase, it's a worth having a clear idea in your mind of what kind of car you are looking for before you turn up. Because of the wide range of cars that you will see at a motor auction, if you haven't already decided what you're looking for, you may find that you get sidetracked - leaving you at risk of bidding on a car that isn't really suitable for you.

Consider things such as the size of the engine that you require, the amount of space you need to accommodate for family or pets and give yourself a cut-off price point, to make sure that you don't go over budget. When you have your heart set on a particular car that you've spotted in the motor auction, it can be quite frustrating to watch as the bidding takes it out of your price range. Stick to your guns and don't be tempted to go over your set budget - we get a high volume of fantastic cars being entered into our motor auctions every week, so if you don't get what you want the first time round, just come along again for another try!
