All motor sales are held in purpose-built facilities and the car auctions are managed by professional auctioneers, with an eye for detail it takes to deliver transactions customers can really trust.

Car auctions are also provided online via Manheim's award-winning Simulcast platform giving bidders access to the same fantastic vehicle stock and streamlined auction process.
Online auctions are commonplace now, and Manheim are constantly developing ways to harness the power of the Internet for the benefit of customers. Digital technology has been embraced so successfully that all sales now happen online meaning that at any time our customers are saving time, money and hassle by not having to travel.
Online auction channels provide access and the ability to buy stock without ever leaving home or the workplace. Innovations like the Simulcast platform even let clients take part at a physical auction live as it happens from anywhere in the world. The systems further provide massive amounts of valuable data online too, from sales figures and market trends to superb photography and detailed condition reports.
Exclusive to Motor Trade customers only, Simulcast is an internet–based service that allows a buyer to "attend" a physical auction from the comfort of their own office. Using the very latest online broadcast technology, the service allows the buyer to see and hear all the action from the Auction Hall and then, with the click of a mouse, bid and buy cars or commercial vehicles in real–time, competing against other online buyers as well as buyers who are actually in the Hall. Each Simulcast bid is immediately registered in the Auction Hall by a large plasma screen that flashes red
The advantages of Simulcast are:
✔︎ Provision of visual and audio access to physical auctions from anywhere in the world!
✔︎ Ability to view fully detailed condition reports of vehicles of interest
✔︎ Participation in the sale by simply clicking your mouse to bid and buy vehicles
✔︎ Monitor activity in the marketplace, to "keep your finger on the pulse".
So if you can’t leave the office, have a prior engagement or simply won’t want to waste time traveling, Simulcast allows you to "be there, when you’re not there!"
Unlike Simulcast, CyberAuction is a live "virtual" auction where ALL invited buyers (manufacturer and trade only) are bidding over the internet against each other. With CyberAuction for Motor Trade customers there’s also no need to visit an auction.
The advantages of CyberAuction are:
✔︎ All vehicles are prepared to same standard as a physical auction

✔︎ Vehicles viewed in advance of the auction via pre–sale catalogues
✔︎ Ability to set alarm against selected lots in a watch list
