Acquiring Vehicles on eCarsTrade
At eCarsTrade, our cars are sold in four different ways:
- Blind Auction: Your bid is made privately: no one sees your proposed offer (nor other active offers). You may change your offer as long as the auction period remains open. If your offer is the highest bid proposed, and the seller accepts, you will be notified of your successful submission within 3 working days after closure of the auction.
- Open Auction: In an open ‘traditional’ auction, each bidder can see the highest bid and can make an offer accordingly. Once the bid is submitted you cannot cancel it. If your offer is the highest bid proposed, and the seller accepts, you will be notified of your successful submission within 3 working days after closure of the auction. Bids are required to be in increments of 100€.
- Fixed price: If you prefer a traditional, non-auction approach, eCarsTrade also lists cars with a fixed price. To facilitate your access to the most recent listings, eCarsTrade arranges cars in a chronological way (with the most recent cars appearing first). This gives you, our client, the opportunity to spot the most attractive listings. Cars can also be sorted by their source.
- Our Stock: Cars displayed under this category are the cars selected, and purchased, by eCarsTrade for its own stock. Cars listed with the tag “At Warehouse” have been quality checked by our internal quality assurance experts and are available for collection at any time at our warehouse.
