Vehicle Grading

All vehicles up to 10 years old are fully inspected to NAMA standards.

NAMA (The National Association of Motor Auctions) maintains a consistent vehicle grading standard across all major auction centres across the UK.

The vehicle grade benefits both buyers and sellers by giving a clear indication of the vehicle condition, which allows buyers to purchase in confidence.

Inspection reports are available to view online and physically.
