What is Live Online?
Why is H&H, which has a longer continual trading history than any UK rival, offering Live Auctions Online?
More and more expensive goods are being sold online from houses through to yachts. Indeed, online transactions now make up over 20% of the UK’s retail spending.
Online bidders accounted for 35% of the cars and motorcycles sold through H&H’s physical auctions last year.
Advances in technology mean that attending a physical auction and having to compete with others to view a car is not always the best way of ascertaining its condition.
Live Online Ticks All the Boxes!
As 'hands-on' or as 'hands-off' as you want to be...
- We can take all the photos / videos OR we can accept vendor supplied entry requirements
- H&H will prepare the vehicle description
- Viewings can be conducted at your location or a storage facility. However, so far less than 5% of buyers have availed themselves
of this facility
