To access one of Manheim's public auto auctions, register at the auction venue on the day of the auction. Participants receive a bidder's number upon registration. Manheim allows any licensed driver aged 18 or older to attend its public auctions, but individual auction venues may have additional restrictions.
Manheim's government auctions are also open to the public. Dates and times of these auctions are listed on Manheim's Government Services site. Both dealers and members of the public have access to these auctions.
Purchasing a vehicle from Manheim requires proof of current insurance. Accepted forms of payment and the length of time a buyer has to pay in full are both determined by the individual auction venue.
