General Vehicle Auction
To sell your vehicle in our monthly general vehicle auction, simply deliver the vehicle to Pickles Auctions, 35-51 Somerset Road, Gracemere at the main reception by 12 noon Thursday. Vehicles arriving after this time will not be accepted. All documentation must be supplied at the time of entry. Please contact our branch office by phone: 0418 255 262 or email: email@example.com for further information.
Every vehicle presented for auction requires an agency agreement to be completed and signed by the vendor. Should you have a person/agent acting on your behalf, then a written authority must be supplied along with all title information.
Insurance is the responsibility of the vendor and remain at the risk of the vendor as to any loss or damage suffered.
If you wish to sell your vehicle with registration you must supply a "current safety certificate" obtained during the last 28 days and valid on the day of sale.
N.B. The above certificate shows that your vehicle is currently roadworthy and is more appealing to prospective buyers. Presenting your vehicle for auction with the above enables us to sell your car with confidence knowing the purchaser should be able to transfer the registration of the vehicle without inconvenience at Queensland Transport.
Vehicles without a safety certificate may still be auctioned but under the Motor Dealers Act the number plates must be removed from the vehicle and registration must be cancelled at Queensland Transport. These vehicles have less appeal to prospective buyers.
If your vehicle has personalised number plates attached that you wish to retain, simply follow these steps:

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:
If you have current finance on your vehicle, you must complete an authority form to enable our staff to make all necessary enquiries regarding finalisation of the account. Payment will be deducted from the proceeds of sale and forwarded directly to the finance company on your behalf. Should there be a shortfall of payment you must consult with our trust account staff to arrange payment. The shortfall will be calculated on an estimate of auction value less costs and charges and is payable in cleared funds prior to the auction.
