So you’ve been to an auction before or you know how they work. We have lanes of cars going through our massive auction sheds at our sites across any Manheim location in Australia, New Zealand and the world.
But did you know all the weird and wonderful places Manheim have actually auctioned off assets? Thanks to our amazing online platform, Simulcast, we can auction cars or assets almost anywhere!
In Australia we have had some great ones over the years, so let’s take a look!
