About Us

Who is DealersOnline for?

DealersOnline is a South African online B2B motor vehicle auction site that concentrates solely on selling a selection of pre-owned passenger and commercial vehicles. Our website is for the exclusive use of professional and registered motor industry players and is not open to private individuals. All buyers must be represented by persons who are authorised to enter into legally binding contracts. To maintain our strict policy that only professional motor industry people are permitted to access the online auctions, we reserve the right to exclude any visitor who does not have convincing company and VAT credentials.

Why DealersOnline?

Excess stock can be a real problem to motor vehicle dealers, taking up precious time and space while providing minimal profits and requiring mounds of paperwork. DealersOnline helps you maximise the profits on disposal of your trading stock, leaving you more time to attend to your retail and core business activities. Our efficient and fair sales procedure and automated reporting system exposes you to thousands of credible buyers and ensures a quick turnaround from stock to income.

How does DealersOnline work?

The live online auctions end every Wednesday at 15 h 30. All vehicles are loaded at their minimum reserve and bids start above this reserve. Bid increments are proportionate to the value of the vehicle:

  • Vehicles loaded at under R 50000.00 - increments of R 500.00;
  • Vehicles loaded at between R 50000.00 and R 150000.00 - increments of R 1000.00; and
  • Vehicles loaded at above R 150000.00 - increments of R 1500.00.
To encourage competitive bidding the auction will be extended by 10 minutes if a bid is placed in the last 10 min of the auction. The vehicle will be awarded to the highest bidder and we will send email and SMS notifications to the winner, the seller and the unsuccessful bidders. Managers and sellers can re-list a vehicle for up to 7 days and at a lower amount if the reserve is not fetched. The buyer has 48 hours to collect and pay for the vehicle. We currently build up to one big auction a week that takes place every Wednesday, this allows dealers to gradually load vehicles from the beginning of the week, and buyers time to view the vehicles if desired. We send out the complete list of vehicles to all our users on a Wednesday morning.
