Below is the process to sell your car through Dickson Group:
Step 1: Submit your car information and contact us via the online form.
Step 2: We will provide you the recommended market price of your car within 24 hours. If you accept this market price quoted, Dickson will offer to purchase this car from you after you drive your car to us for viewing. This market price will also be the minimum selling price when your car is placed on Dickson’s live electronic auction platform to try for a higher selling price.
Step 3: Upon your acceptance to sell your car to Dickson at the quoted market price, we will pay you a deposit first. Based on the agreed delivery date, you can drive the car to us, for a 38-point vehicle check, and get your car washed, cleaned and sanitised. This is to better enhance the resale value for your car during auction. We will pay you the balance of the agreed market price and help you settle any outstanding loan, upon successful transfer of the car ownership to Dickson.
Step 4: Your car will be displayed for potential bidders (over 100 potential Car Dealers) to view, and go through Singapore’s first electronic live vehicle auction platform for bidding.
Step 5: Upon successful bid, you will receive the difference between the higher bid price and market price in payment from Dickson.
Our Auction is great for individual car owners who like to sell their vehicle at the highest possible price in the market.
These are the benefits you will enjoy when you sell your car through Dickson Live Auction:

In the live auction, the bid price is generally higher than the market price, for popular car makes and models that are of acceptable car condition.
Our valuation is based on our 30+ years’ experience in pre-owned trading market, with consideration of the following factors such as the registration date of the vehicle, mileage used, and car conditions (i.e. history of accident), including references from other relevant vehicle trading sources.
