Good 4wd would buy againI bought a 2018 Prado which was fitted out with all the expensive 4WD gear such as bull bar, winch, driving lights, roof rack, twin batteries, snorkel, lift kit etc etc around $20k of top quality gear. The price was cheaper than a standard 4wd of that year. The condition report mentioned some faults such as scratches on paint etc. When I went to pick it up I was surprised it was better than I thought. After getting it home I have found a few faults such as some dints under body plates (normal for 4wd), winch elec cable missing, mud flaps needin… Read more · 1g screws and a few other things to tidy up if fussy. The service was pretty good and it was unregistered so I had to get a $66 permit to drive it from SA to Vic 750km test drive with no problems. It was perfect for me due to low cost and some minor repair work that I can do myself.

Car sold with dead battery and engine light sign ONI bought a Mercedes Benz B200 from Pickles Auction last week. The car wouldn't start at the time of delivery. They jump started it and asked us to replace the battery. The engine light was also ON - these problems were never mentioned in the condition report. It was very hard to find the right battery and I had to spend over $500 to replace the battery. Terrible and frightening experience.
Good thing was that after replacing the battery their mechanic was able to reset & got rid of Engine light. Show details

Bargain Live AuctionsWord of advice avoid the buy now auctions, because they are an absolute rip Off . You want the live Auctions.
For example: My brother picked up a Deal that you won't even find in the private market .
The Deal was a 2016 Toyota Corolla hatchback from Manheim bidding auction, with 112,000kms on the clock ⏰, reverse ◀️ camera , & sensors for $14750. I looked everywhere in the private market & Could Not find a similar offer. So avoid the buy Now auctions like the plague & aim for the live bidding auctions.
You can literally pick up a 2018 Toyota … Read more · 1Corolla Hatchback from Manheim Auctions with 80,000kms for 17k. So avoid the buy Now & go into Live bidding . Avoid buy Now vehicles like the plague in Auctions, because they are Soo expensive, you might as well buy them brand new from the dealership or the private market. So live Auctions is definitely the way to GO.
Good communicationBeing new in the industry made me anxious but the lady, I spoke to, helped me a lot. Show reply

Easy to use and pics are true to life! Highly recommend!To be honest, I was terrified to bid on a car as it was a new experience for me BUT Pickles couldn't have made it easier, it was easy to bid as their website is not only obvious for first timers but was simple but effective and the rest of the process of collecting the car was seamless and professional. I highly recommend Pickles as the number 1 go to for Car Auctions. Basically what you see is what you get! Thanks Pickles Show details · 1

Good afternoon I bought vespa scooter Repairable wright-off $1088 from Pickles auction in Melbourne. After repair I call for make inspection they say I can't its statutory write-off Than I contact Pickles Auction, after two month we agree they pay together $2788 including for transport to Adelaide, parts, Paint.

I ask tham if they pay Bank check on pickup time they refuse. What is your suggestion can I drop to Adelaide Pckles and receive Bank Check on time delivery or seek lawyer or ombudsmen. Thank you. Regards Len
Len as far as I know if it’s a statuary write off it cannot be registered in South Australia.
I suggest contacting the SA vehicle Registration department for more details
Len as far as I know all states in Aus there are two classes of write off's, repairable which can be repaired and relicensed after inspection, an non repairable which can not be re registered ever par... Read morets only, I owned a smash repair for around 20 years and there is no way i would buy a repairable write off, (they are hard to resell) although I see some dumb over priced bid's for them I fully do not recommend buying them
