Quick and easy

Using MotorTrade UK is quick and easy, so you can bid and buy the right stock whenever and wherever you are. So, how exactly does the platform work?

Get started

The platform is very simple, you log in and start browsing auctions immediately, which are available 24/7.

There are 3 types of auction available:

Open Auction

Bid in increments of £100 or set your maximum bid and let the platform bid on your behalf. The highest bidder wins.


Blind Auction

Check the starting bid and place your own bid. The highest bidder wins.

Buy it now

This is exactly as it sounds. A fixed price and no need to bid – simply click buy.

Final Steps

Finalising the purchase

Once you’ve won an open or blind auction, or clicked buy in a ‘buy it now’ auction, you’ll just need to arrange payment and confirm your transport options. It’s that simple.
