How To Bid

1. Register

If you would like to take part in one of our used car auctions, you first need to register. You can register online with our registration form.

You will also be required to pay a R 5000 refundable deposit. This can be paid in cash on the day of the auction. Please note we do not accept credit cards or bank deposits. 

Once registered and paid, you will be able to bid on our cars at auction.  If on the day of the car auction, you don’t buy anything then you may leave your deposit in your account and take part in future auctions.

2. Your Buyers Number

Once registered and paid, you will receive a card buyers number so you can take part in our car auctions. Your buyer number will allow us to process pro-forma invoices quicker.

If your R 5000 deposit is still in your account, then use the card number to register for future auctions.

3. Attending the Auction

Our used car auctions are Every Saturday at 12:00. You may view the vehicles for auction every Friday from 9:00 – 17:00 at 205 Baan Street, Capital Park, Pretoria North or you can view our cars for auction online from Monday on our online catalogue.

On the day of the auction, bring a copy of your South African ID or Passport. If you are not a South African citizen, also bring a traffic register certificate.

You can pay your R 5000 deposit on the day of the auction in cash.

4. Bid on Your Used Car

Seen that used car, you want? Use your buyer’s number to start bidding.

If you win the car auction, head to the invoice counter and show your buyer’s number. We will print your pro-forma invoices. These invoices can’t be split, which means that you will need to pay for each car you win for them to be released.

You may not negotiate the price after winning the car auction. The final price is the hammer price.  

5. Make Payment

Each pro-forma invoice includes a reference number, which is the same as your buyer’s card number. This number must be used as a payment reference.  

Once funds reflect in Universal’s Cars account, an invoice will be sent, which confirms your payment.  

Any payments made to an employees bank account are made at the customers own risk.
