DVCA - LIVE AND ONLINE - BUT DIFFERENT
With Covid -19 still very much part of our daily lives and taking into consideration the terrible impact it has had on our population, we all have had to adapt the way we exist in our working environment. It has certainly turned the motor car auction world on its head but that is where Dorset Vintage & Classic Auctions is accommodating new and future challenges in the motoring world.
Most auction houses invite potential vendors to enter their vehicle by completing an entry form and forwarding the form together with photographs to the prospective auction house. The need for an independent inspection of a vehicle is vital and without a second appraisal, it can result in an aborted sale. It is much easier for a successful completed sale transaction if the vehicle is stored at an auction premises where potential buyers can view the vehicle safely within government guidelines.
This is where Dorset Vintage & Classic Auctions is rising to the challenging times. We still conduct the auction sale process in the usual way: we visit the vendor, inspect the vehicle, view the history file offer any advice the client may need without any reimbursement at point of call. If the client wishes to proceed, we then take photographs, film the vehicle and complete an entry form. If required, we can arrange transportation at a reasonable cost to our premises for free storage prior to an auction sale. The only difference being is that the Live and Online auction sale is carried out behind closed doors and will be conducted by EasyLiveAuction.com - telephone and absentee commission bidding will remain the same but in the sure knowledge of keeping our clients and staff safe.
