Is it worthwhile using an auction agent?

On a recommendation from you I used Julian Trim 11 years ago to source a Jaguar at auction. His help was invaluable. I don’t think he is trading any longer, so have you any alternative agents you could recommend?

I don't recommend private individuals buying at auction any more, even using a professional buyer to buy the car for you. Prices are too close to retail and you don't get any warranty.
