What is Your Maximum Bid?

Your Maximum Bids are secure electronic bids that represent people if they are unable to participate in an auction. You simply place your maximum bid in a Simulcast auction catalogue and your bid will be taken incrementally as if you were actually placing your bids. At no time does the auctioneer ever become aware of the user’s maximum bid.

What is My Watchlist?

Manheim Simulcast auctions give you the ability to flag vehicles they contain. Upon adding a vehicle to your Watchlist you will be notified visually and by audio just before the vehicle is auctioned. Please note this Watchlist does not show the sales results after the auction.

What are Saved Searches?

Saved Searches are queries such as vehicle make & colour that can be saved and queried at any time.

How do I pay for a vehicle?

The balance of money owed on the vehicle after your deposit should be paid by 4:00pm the next business day after the sale. A Buyer Administration fee is also applicable to each vehicle sold in public auctions. Payment can be made in the form of cash, bank cheque, EFTPOS, credit card (processing fee applies), BPay (overnight transaction) or Direct Deposit (can be an overnight transaction). Purchase of 2 or more vehicles requires payment for all vehicles in full before any can exit the site.

How am I invoiced for purchased vehicles?

Invoices are automatically sent on the conclusion of a sale and will be emailed instantly.

What is an Auction Calendar?

The auction calendar is a powerful tool that shows all Manheim auctions across Australia. The calendar is printer friendly and can be customized with a large array of options.
