Buying At Auction
Buying at auction is an exciting and rewarding experience providing participants the opportunity to achieve good value from their efforts. . . .and there has probably never been a better time to buy at auction.
With increasing numbers of auctioneers, improved legislation, the advent of online bidding and the global market, there are many more opportunities for bidders to obtain good quality equipment at lower prices than ever before
However, “Caveat Emptor” – let the buyer beware
Do your homework – Auctions operate within their own regulatory framework, with little opportunity for recourse. To avoid disappointment and unwelcome surprises, bidders participating in auctions are encouraged to understand their rights and familiarise themselves with the sales process before bidding. Taking time to do your homework in advance will ensure you go away with a great purchase.
Working with you – At PACT we go the extra mile to guide bidders through the process to ensure a positive experience. Bidders are the life blood of a successful auction and we work hard to establish enduring relationships built on a reputation of trust and integrity.
