AuctionsPlus is dedicated to ensuring positive transactions for all users of our platform. Agents who wish to market stock but are not assessors will need to become Accredited Delivery Agents.
The Delivery Agent, rather than the assessor, is typically the key contact for interested buyers, the highest bidder or purchaser, as well as the AuctionsPlus team, when stock are listed for sale. They handle pre-sale inquiries, discuss reserve price setting with their client, manage negotiations, handle transport and payment arrangements, and are the first port of call should anything go wrong.
They are just as critical as the assessor in ensuring a positive outcome for both the buyer and their own client.
The nominated Delivery Agent will be able to manage all online aspects of the sale of a lot, including setting Reserve prices, accessing Buyer details, reoffering lots, updating results to Sold, and managing lots listed with the Buy Now option.
How do I become an Accredited Delivery Agent?
