How to Buy

Buying a vehicle at auction has never been easier than at a Worldwide Auctioneers event. In this section we'll cover the basics and, of course, we suggest you review the actual Terms and Conditions of Sale, which form the basis of our contract with all purchasers.

Please don't hesitate to contact us at 260.925.6789 with any questions we can help answer or assistance we can provide.

REGISTER TO BID EARLY - Registering early is fast and easy, and allows you to enjoy all of the amenities we provide to our clients onsite, including any Preview Receptions, VIP seating, and a personal advance preview of any vehicles you are considering purchasing.

Our bidder registration fee includes an Auction Catalogue and admission for two.

PAYMENT OPTIONS - Buyers may choose any of the following arrangements for payment: cash (which requires a $10,000 deposit), cashier's check, a personal check accompanied by a bank letter of guarantee, or financing through a pre-approved lender.

BUYER'S PREMIUM - Worldwide Auctioneers charges a buyer's premium of 10% on vehicles and 21% on non-automotive items.

ABSENTEE and TELEPHONE BIDDING - If you are unable to attend an auction in person, just register in advance, and we'll arrange for a personal vehicle walk-through via telephone with one of our Motorcar Specialists, who then will be on the phone with you to execute your bids.

ARRANGEMENTS - Worldwide Auctioneers has Concierge Staff on hand to assist you with all aspects of your visit - simply call Tammy at 260.925.6789. We've also arranged to have both insurance and enclosed transport options on site to help you with your post-purchase details.

THE WORLDWIDE AUCTIONEERS CATALOGUE - Every lot sold by Worldwide Auctioneers is detailed in our award-winning color catalogues, complete with full-color professional photography, detailed descriptions, and an estimated range of values you can expect the vehicle to bring. Catalogues can be purchased in advance and also serve as admission for two. Of course, full information and detailed photographs are also available at
