Online Car Auctions At Motus Auto Auctions

Online Car Auctions At Motus Auto Auctions 

Online car auctions have become popular in the world today, especially in the trade of collector cars. More and more cars find a new home through the world of online car auctions. As with any form of business conduction, there is a process that we must familiarise ourselves with if we want to bid for cars online. Motus Auto Auctions offers the opportunity to bid in person and from the comfort of your home. 

How Do Online Car Auctions Work?

When you place a bid on Motus Auto Auctions you are making a commitment and so it is imperative that you are aware of how it works and the role you play in it. To put it simply, a car is put up for bidding and those with an interest will make an offer. At a live car auction, customers will make their offers until the final offer has been made. This is typically the last bidder willing to offer the most. 

With regards to online car auctions, the car in question is up for bidding until the close of that particular auction. A key consideration when conducting an auction, be it live or online, is that the amount of people who are present to bid matters. Live in-person car auctions generally remain open for bidding for a few minutes and those that are there to bid are the only ones able to place any bids. To ensure that the seller will get the best offer possible, our online car auctions at Motus will generally remain open for bidding for a few days at a time so that as many people as possible have an opportunity to make an offer. 

Motus’s online car auctions have a myriad of benefits for both the buyer and the seller. Benefits such as a wider reach of people able to bid on the cars, more time to make an offer, which also allows for research to be done before you make the commitment to purchase. 

Adjustments have been made to ensure that life can still continue with the pandemic, and in the event that another possibly occurs. However, regardless of the pandemic that we are currently facing, we have entered a time of technology and many industries - including ours - have had to adopt a digital manner of conducting business. 


Motus Auto Auctions has moved swiftly over into the digital age offering both in-person car auctions and online car auctions too. Now that you know how it works, find out when our next online car auction is.
