Friday Part Exchange Sales

Every Friday at 6.00pm we hold a Part Exchange sale with cars entered from well established main dealers. These cars vary in mileage and condition but are mostly privately owned and available at sensible prices.

If you are a private buyer we recommend you visit us and have a good look around the car you are interested in, bring someone who knows a bit about cars for your peace of mind. The auctioneer will describe the car prior to any bidding. You could save yourself some money and grab a bargain at the same time!

Don't let anything stop you buying at Eastbourne Car Auctions.  Stay in your office watch the entire auction live and bid live online.  Please register for 'ECA LiveBid' prior to the sale to get your password or give one of us a call to tell you more about this great facility.
