At SMD car auctions you will be able to find hundreds of vehicles that can be very easily accessible to the trade industry and to the public. There are thousands of cars that are offered every single month around South Africa. If you are looking for a cheap way to own a car, this is it! Keep in mind that there are some cases where the vehicle you are purchasing will need some repairs. SMD will not assist when it comes to the repairs needed on any vehicle. You buy the vehicle as it is and it is up to you to make sure to get it repaired, if there is anything wrong with it. Not all vehicles sold or on auctions need repairs, but you do come across them.
The truth about any auction house or auction site, in this case SMD, is that the cars are going fast. The truth is that every minute a car is sold. If you would like to view the vehicles available at the auction, it is free. However, you will need to register when it comes to bidding. Prices cannot be reserved, because you decide on your price.
If you are interested in the auctions and would like to participate, but you are still not sure, make sure to watch a few of the auctions to see how things are done. Do this to get a feel of how things are done and then decide from there is this is something that’s for you.
These events are often fast paced and exciting which can sometimes be a little intimidating to the novice bidder. Have a look at the video below which illustrates the speed at which the auctioneer goes and captures the action at a live vehicle auction event.
