Car & motorcycle auction


Beng

Recommended Posts

The website seems to be for Bangkok?... Where is the link for auctions in Chiang Mai?...

Can someone describe the process?... How does one make a bid? if you win how much time do you have to make payment?... Will they handle registering the car in your name?

You have to lodge a bond before you have bidding rights.. Also a buyers fee not (or as well as ??) a sellers fee, so the bid price +plus..

Mildly cheap vehicles but then many westerners have a very weird idea of what the real cash value market seems to be these days, people still asking 400k on vigos that get 2xx in reality..

Add in many are repos, with unknown service records and paperwork.. Dont expect any clarity on if its been an accident vehicle before.. Usually a delay to clear finance and get the book but Union (and is it quantum) reputable.

You can save some cash at a higher risk and effort.. I expect the real bargain are filtered out the system and dont see the auction.. EG I know toyota sure get first pop at toyota finance repos.. If they have passed on it, what does that tell you ?? Both about the second hand market values, Toyota sure's stock levels of unsold, and the possible desirability of the vehicle being passed on.

It's mainly for Bangkok, but they include auctions in other cities as well. There is at the moment a list of cars up for auction in Chiang Mai today.

Nobody seems to know.

Jesus.. talk about spoon feeding..

Go to the link posted above look on the front page.. See the link Wed 10th December Chiang Mai.. Thats todays one.. See the car lists ?? See the start prices ??

Also look http://union-auction.com/en/home/newwebdesign1/index.aspx

Its as simple as navigating an english language website these days.. Try it 5 years back when nothing was in english. They have a facebook page.. they have contact numbers.. Hel they even have android and iOS apps.. You can ask them.. But the outline I posted above.. You must put up a bond before you can bid.. You get the bond back later if you dont buy anything.. Books can take a while to clear finance.. Etc..

The transaction process is detailed here.. http://union-auction.com/en/home/newwebdesign1/automobile.html Get someone to read Thai for you if your not able to (you will need a pretty good level of Thai to deal with the auction, this isnt set up for westerners

If you are not well acquainted with the workings of cars,

and don't know what faults or how to spot them,like has

it been in accident,is the head casket gone,timing chain,

is it burning oil,etc,ect, you are better staying away,as

there is no guarantee and you cannot even test drive.

Total agreement.. You cant drive them, so its a perfect place to put non straight wreck rebuilds through.. Its also a good place to dump all those lemons that went through the floods and have electrical gremlins that wont ever be cured..

Basic engine and bodywork is cheap here, so less of a fear than in the west, but standards of repair by insurance companies can be terrible and unsafe, and so its not like this isnt without some risk..
