How to buy
You can buy machines, heavy vehicles and other high-value items at kvdpro.com. All sales take place via online auctions, and each advertisement is published on our website with full documentation when testing has been carried out. This is what you do if you want to buy something at kvdpro.com.
Become a member
All sales at kvdpro.com take place through online auctions, which means that bidding takes place on our website and the person who places the highest bid is allowed to buy the object. To place a bid, you have to be a member. Membership is free, and all you have to do is give us your contact details. You also have to select a user name which acts as your pseudonym when you place bids.
To take part in bidding, you need to be logged in as a member. You can place a bid yourself or bid automatically. If you place a bid, you enter the amount you want to bid and the bidding is then raised to that level. If you prefer to place an automatic bid, you enter the maximum amount you want to pay for the object being sold and then allow your bids to be placed automatically up to that level. You can increase your automatic bid at any time by placing a new bid.
Each advertisement includes a date and time for a countdown. The auction will start to close at this time. The countdown lasts for 3 minutes and 30 seconds. If more bids are received during the countdown, the countdown time is extended by a further 3 minutes and 30 seconds. The auction comes to an end when no new bids have been received during the 3 minutes and 30 seconds.
When the auction ends, the highest bidder receives an email from us confirming that they have won the auction. The auction object often has a reserve price, which is the minimum price the seller once for the object, and buying the object is only guaranteed if this reserve price has been reached. If the reserve price has not been reached, KVD Heavy Equipment will contact the seller in order to approve the highest bid in the auction as the sale price before the sale is actioned. Whether the reserve price for the auction object is reached is specified in the advertisement on the website and in the email received by the winning bidder.
Whether a vehicle or machine sold at kvdpro.com can be exported from Sweden is stated in the object description on kvdpro.com. If the vehicle can be exported, different rules are applicable depending on the country to which you want to export it and whether you are exporting the vehicle as a company or a private individual.
Kvdpro.com takes a deposit for Swedish VAT on a winning bid. The deposit is refunded upon presentation of a valid document that confirms export/shipment from Sweden. Further information
The buyer collect the auction object at the facility where the vehicle or machine is located as shown in the description. This must be done within five working days. In some instances, the auction object will be situated somewhere other than at a KVD facility and will then have to be collected from this location.
