BaT lowballs reserves to increase the chances of a sale which is money in their pocket.
I also know that BaT lifts this policy for brokers and dealers, likely due to the volume of nice cars a dealer would bring. Dealers also tend to list cars higher than they would be worth if sold by an individual. I don't fully understand this phenomenon but I see it every day. Auctioning cars may be BaT's business but market manipulation should be unlawful.
