Love my new car

I bought my car as a buy-it-now . The Pickles team were great communicators, I always got a quick response to questions and they were supportive at all times. It was a great experience that went smoothly and the car was exactly as described. Show reply

Unusual collections

Have been looking at site for a while but only just recently purchased. There seem to be various collections of different items that pop up along the way. The most difficult part for me would be collection times. More vigilance needed on my behalf Show reply

Beware of dealing with this firm

I purchased a vehicle from Picklesit had a shot transmission that was nor mentioned in the condition report and a very bad repair on the rear that was not disclosed. when i tried to return the vehicle they fobbed me off without anyone having the decency to call me. Lesson learnt poor customer service dont deal with these people coz they will take ur money and run.

They sold me a Holden Captiva7 in 2012 on a fixed price hiding the fact that the car had a timing chain issue with the check engine lights on.Test drives were not allowed. Their mechanic checked a number of times , denied the matter refused to fix it. They even sold me a separate warranty that would not cover the repair cost. I wanted to return the car but they refused. Later on, I had to get it fixed from a Holden Dealership for $3000.
Guys , beware of these scammers. Check the return policy and warranty. Never buy a car without a test-drive.

Easy process, great communication!

Online bidding process was very straight forward. All communication with staff after that was great and car collection was fast.
Car was in great condition and all minor defects were outlined in condition report. Show reply

Great experience with Pickles Live App

I like the fact you can bid at live auctions through the app. I picked up a lovely vehicle through this.

I wish Pickles was open for half a day on the weekends for vehicle collection. Having to take time off to get your vehicle is frustrating. Show reply

Excellent experience

We recently bought an ex-Government car at the Vic auctions and were really pleased with the whole experience. It was seamless - from the auction to the payment and collection. Would highly recommend this as a way to buy a used car! Show reply

Bought a Car online from Pickles

I've been to Pickles Car Auctions in the past, but this was the first time I've used the Pickles Online Car Auctions. It was a bit never racking at first, but with the guidance, support and help by the Pickles staff, it became a relatively simple process. Upon reflection, I've concluded that I actually prefer the Online Car Auction at the comfort of your own home. Because I've bought cars from Pickles in the past, I fully trusted the whole process, and I trusted Pickles to do the right thing by me. And they did. Show reply

Awesome people to deal with

I've bought many vehicles from Pickles and have found descriptions to be very accurate.
I've had the odd problem, (usually of my own doing), and I have always found Pickles staff to be helpful and courteous.
I would not hesitate to recommend them.
I bought a vehicle yesterday, another today and maybe one tomorrow. I'm in New Zealand and I have more faith in Pickles than in our NZ auction sites.

Cant inspect

Ive just closed my pickles account just in case I got tempted to use it.
Cant inspect, must trust description , even though description is dodgy.
Just because it says not on wovr dosnt mean that to be true.
Check all wovr descriptions , check rego vins, check check and bloody check.
Once purchased you have zero comeback. Its Not uncommon to have not on wovr written and then have written off vehicle written elsewhere or vice versa.
A once great auction house now rivals Grays for lies and deceit. Never ever again for me.

Great place to buy used vehicles

I have purchased a number of vehicles/caravans from Pickles in the past few years. The descriptions are very accurate it's an easy process from signing up to bidding.
Have never had any issues with sales and its hassle free pick up each time.
I couldn't recommend them highly enough. Show reply

Great front desk help staff - a business can't get better PR than that. (Give them a pay rise I say!)

Having driven 3 hours after being successful in an online auction to collect our car, only to find that there was a holdup with our bank (not at all pickles fault). The front desk staff went above and beyond to do as much as they could to untangle things and inform us as to what needed to be done and the best way to do it - all at closing time. Top marks! Show reply

Would I do it again? In a heartbeat!

I purchased my vehicle from Pickles Auctions. I had never bid at any sort of auction before but I was very interested in the vehicle so I thought I would give it a try. My advice is work out what your budget is and put in a max bid. Don't forget that you need to allow for buyer's fee in your budget!
I found out, after asking lots of questions, how payments are processed and how to collect your goods. When you make a payment, don't forget to email through your payment receipts to the remittance address! All in all it was a great experience - and I am very happy with my car. Show reply

Pretty happy with the service

I was pretty happy with the service and how straightforward everything was with their auction. Every step went smoothly with no mix ups. I was impressed that they bring your items to you rather than let the customers in the warehouse. In other places where I used to go to auctions, we all went in to grab our items and other people stealing stuff from lots that did not belong to them was a problem. Nice to see that we do't have to worry about the items we have paid for going walkabout here. Show reply

Fair and simple auction process; easy collection

The auction process was simple to understand and, by extending the bidding time if higher bids were received, fair in the same manner as a live auction. Collection was straightforward. Some of the items were damaged or incomplete, as was stated might be the case in the advertisement; hence nothing to complain about. Show reply
