How do I bid at the sale?

In order to bid at the sale you will be required to complete a bidder registration form if you are not already registered with us, and provide photographic identification (passport or driving licence) and proof of address (utility bill/bank statement).

You can bid in person, online, on the telephone and by leaving an absentee bid with us in advance.

Bidding in person

If you wish to bid in person, you will need to collect a bidding paddle from our accounts office on the day of the sale.

Online bidding

You can bid using Sworders Live bidding platform, accessed from our website, which has no online bidding surcharge, unlike using 3rd party bidding platforms. We recommend you register well in advance of the sale.

Telephone bidding

Telephone bidding allows you to bid live during the auction. You will need to complete a form which asks for your name, address, the telephone number(s) you wish us to contact you on (it is advisable to add an additional number such as your mobile) and the lot number(s) you wish to bid on. For any reason we are unable to contact you on the telephone number(s) you leave on the form, please consider leaving a bid in the highest bid column that we can bid up to for you (optional). A member of Sworders staff will contact you a few lots prior to the lot(s) you wish to bid on.

Absentee bidding

Absentee bidding can be carried out in advance by registering to bid on our website, and leaving bids once logged in. Alternatively, you may complete a form in our office with your name, address and the lot(s) number(s) you wish to bid on. You will also need to enter the amount you are willing to bid up to for that lot (excluding premium and VAT). Sworders will execute the bid as cheaply as possible on your behalf. 

If you are a first time bidder with us, we may ask you to provide proof of identity, as noted above, so we recommend leaving bids well in advance and please note that absentee bidding on our website closes at 12 noon on the day of the sale.


Can I view the documents that accompany the vehicles?

Yes, all available documents can be inspected during viewing. To view this document please ask a member of staff.


Are there any warranties offered with the vehicles?

No. The fully illustrated catalogue will describe the vehicles to the best of our ability on the information supplied. Should we receive pertinent information after the publication of the catalogue, we will affix a saleroom notice (SRN) to the vehicle. A list of all SRNs will be available by the time the vehicles are presented for view. We are happy to offer our opinion as to the integrity of the vehicle at the sale, however you should accept this is an opinion only and should not be relied upon. In short, you should satisfy yourself as to the completeness, condition and integrity of any lot prior to bidding. It is also important to note that some illustrations are historical and may show the vehicle in a better condition than now offered.


Can I change my mind after I have purchased a lot?

No. Lots are not sold as an option and there is no 'cooling off' period. Once the auctioneer drops the hammer a contract is made and you are obligated to proceed with contract.


V5C Registration Document procedures

Vehicles are offered with and without keys and documents. It is the buyer’s responsibility to inspect the lot at the sale to satisfy themselves as to the completeness, integrity and presence of keys, spares and documentation. The catalogue will not necessarily list such said items.

Where held, Sworders keep and update all registration documents, therefore please make sure if you are a successful bidder that you notify our accounts office on the day of the sale, with the name and address for which the vehicle is to be registered to. 

In order to comply, not until cleared funds have been received by Sworders, shall transfer of ownership be deemed to have taken place. 

You must comply with the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority's (DVLA) procedures for updating a change of keeper for a motor vehicle. 

If we have not received confirmation of the new keeper's name and address 14 days from the date of the sale, we will write to you requesting this information. 

If, after 28 days from the date of sale, we still have not had contact from you, we will update the new keeper to the name and address shown on your Sworders client account. 

Should your address be from outside the United Kingdom, we will inform the DVLA that the vehicle has been exported. 

If you wish the new keeper details to be updated in any other way please make contact with our Accounts Office as soon as possible. 

Please note, that once the V5C has been updated by the DVLA it cannot be reversed. 

All registration document enquiries should be directed to Luke Macdonald at
