For Simulcast sales, your ‘Maximum Bid’ is a secure electronic bid value that represents you if you’re unable to participate in a Simulcast auction. You simply place your maximum bid against a listing in the auction catalogue and your bid will be taken incrementally as if you were actually placing your bids. At no time does the Auctioneer or any other bidder ever become aware of your maximum bid.

In the case of “BidNow” listings, when you enter a High Bid, the system will bid on your behalf up to (but not beyond) your High Bid value. If another member places a bid that is equal to your maximum High Bid value, your High Bid will be placed and will appear in the Bid History as two consecutive bids from you. Your High Bid will have priority over other bids of the same value, as it was placed earlier. If your High Bid value is outbid, you will receive a “You have been Outbid” email.
Manheim Simulcast auctions give you the ability to flag vehicles they contain. Upon adding a vehicle to your ‘Watchlist’ you will be notified visually and by audio just before the vehicle is auctioned. Please note this ‘Watchlist’ does not show the sales results after the auction.
‘Saved Searches’ are queries such as vehicle make and colour that can be saved and queried at any time.
The balance of money owed on the vehicle after your deposit must be paid by 4 pm the next business day after the sale. A ‘Buyer Administration Fee’ is also applicable to each vehicle sold in public auctions. Payment can be made in the form of cash, bank cheque, EFTPOS, credit card - VISA and MasterCard only - processing fee applies, BPAY (overnight transaction) or Direct Deposit (can be an overnight transaction). Purchase of 2 or more vehicles requires payment for all vehicles in full before they can be removed from the site.
Invoices are automatically emailed at the conclusion of a sale.
The ‘Auction Calendar’ is a powerful tool that shows all Manheim auctions across Australia and New Zealand. The calendar is printer friendly and can be customized with a large array of options.
