Why do you need the telephone number?

As one of our innovative Services, we need your telephone number to send you instant updates about Bids place, Outbid or won Auctions directly to your mobile phone.

How does bidding work?

You simply type in the amount you would like to bid. If it’s higher than other bids, you become the high bidder. Bidding is raised immediately to your entered amount. The bid you place will become the new high bid. If you win the auction this is the price you will be responsible for paying to the seller.  Additionally to this amount, a 9.6 % Sales Provision for GyC is transferred from your Bank Account.

Can I bid if I’m not in Europe?

Sure! So long as you have registered with valid bank details, you can bid from anywhere.

Why does the clock keep resetting?

It’s common in online auctions for buyers to use special software to enter a bid in the very last seconds of the auction to outbid others without giving them a chance to respond. During the last 2 minutes of Getyourclassic Auctions, the clock resets to 2 minutes after every bid. This happens until no more bids are placed and the auction ends. This gives everyone a chance to place their bids and gives sellers a chance to sell to the true high bidder.

Is there a possibility to cancel my bid?

Please be very careful when placing your bid. We do not cancel bids on the site.

Can I find out if an auction has a reserve?

If a car is offered at No Reserve, we do announce it by putting that information in the listing title. Other than that we do not communicate the reserve.

Where can I find the estimated Price?

All offerings through Gyc are without Estimated Prices. We do not like this Game of traditional Auctions.  Do your research and find the correct price for yourself. Read the Listing carefully and listen to the Comments of the Community to find the right value for yourself. If you then wish to be the new owner, make sure you’re the high bidder!

How can I inspect a car?

We encourage all potential bidders to inspect a car prior to placing a bid. If you would like to inspect a car or have it inspected, Contact the Seller via the Comments Box.
