Exporting & Buying from Abroad
We export to many countries around the world and a large percentage of our export buyers bid on the telephone or bid online.
Our live online bidding service is the easiest way to buy at Merthyr Motor Auctions. You can bid online from anywhere in the world; our live online bidding and spotter services at every auction makes bidding simple.
The first step is to register. Registration is simple and takes a matter of minutes. Once
registered, you can view all the vehicles we have for auction including photos and mileages etc.
You then register for live bidding by paying a secure deposit online of £500.
Export Buyers can save 20%
A large selection of our cars & 4x4's are also VAT inclusive, so you can reclaim the 20% VAT once the car / 4x4 has been exported.
A spotter is a member of our auction team who can bid for you at auction or live on the telephone. They are assistant auctioneers who are here to help all bidders whether you are an experienced bidder or a newbie to auctions.
Reclaim VAT on an Exported Vehicle
When the vehicle / item is shipped to its destination port within three months of purchase, the original MMA invoice & the Bill of Lading (shipping document) should be stamped by the shipping company or customs.
Return the following documents within three months from the shipping date and we'll refund your VAT:
- Original MMA invoice stamped by shipping company or customs
- The original shipping document with the vehicle registration number stated
- All EC buyers must produce their VAT number

We then issue a new invoice showing no VAT and a cheque for the VAT will be refunded.

As an additional service MMA has teamed up with various Shipping Companies to provide worldwide shipping facilities for buyers.
Latest Customer Reviews
Just a quick email to say thank you for a great service. Travel Assist is a not for profit social enterprise that provides community transport services and we were looking for an affordable wheelchair accessible vehicle. Having no experience of bidding for vehicles in an auction, your spotter was extremely helpful with providing information about vehicles and making bids. Although we were a little apprehensive, we made a successful bid and got the vehicle that we required. What is more we are very happy with our purchase. I can assure you that Travel Assist will certainly be back for more vehicles in the near future
