Written off Vehicles

Under no circumstances, will Pickles Auctions accept vehicles that have been previously written off or water affected. A WOVR search and Revs check will be conducted on every vehicle onsite.

Roadworthy Certificate

When selling vehicles in the ACT we recommend NSW registered vehicles be sold with either a Pink or Blue Slip to show both the current roadworthiness of your vehicle and to give to our potential buyers confidence that the vehicles should be fit for ACT registration purposes.

Pink Slip (for NSW registered vehicles)

If you wish to sell your vehicle with registration you must supply a "current pink slip" obtained during the last 28 days and valid on the day of sale. If you have registered the vehicle in the last 28 days then a pink slip is not required.

Blue Slip (for NSW registered vehicles)

It is recommended that your unregistered vehicle be auctioned with a current blue slip.

Vehicles without a pink or blue slip may still be auctioned but under the Motor Dealers Act the number plates must be removed from the vehicle and the balance of registration will not pass to the buyer. These vehicles have less appeal to prospective buyers.

Title (Proof of Purchase)

It is mandatory for you to prove you are the owner of the vehicle.

Registration papers are not sufficient and do not substitute for title information. Confirming title is checking the history of the vehicle to satisfy our requirements of representing the vehicle in an ethical manner.

If your vehicle was purchased privately, the following requirements apply:

  • A receipt with all relevant details of the purchase.
  • Name, address and telephone numbers of the seller and purchase date.
  • If your vehicle was purchased from a motor dealer or auction house (excluding damaged vehicles) a copy of the original invoice must also be supplied.
