To start bidding, you’ll have to register on our website. You will not be able to participate in the auction without registering.
You can register with your Google or Facebook account, or your email.
2. Add deposit
According to the auction rules, participation in the bidding or 'Buy it now' request requires a deposit. A deposit allows you to bid and guarantees you will buy the vehicle when you win the auction.
The minimum deposit to participate in the bidding is $600. This deposit allows you to bid on vehicles; the maximum bid will not exceed $6,000.
If you wish to bid on a car worth more money, the deposit must be at least 10% of the maximum bid. For example, for a bid of $8,500, you will need a deposit of at least $850.
You can return the funds deposited at any time. To do this, you will need to go to your profile and select the “Return the deposit” menu item.

3. Provide an official ID
Your government issued ID is used to verify your identity and contact information. Federal and state regulations require this ID to be on file for both the seller and buyer to guard against vehicle theft and/or fraud. Upload a document proving your identity (passport or driver’s license) using this link:
4. Start searching for a vehicle
You can choose from over 200,000 vehicles available online at our website, and our inventory is updated daily.
Use our filters for search including but not limited to: title type, vehicle condition, odometer, and location.
You can also use the ‘Buy it now’ option and buy a car without the auction.
5. Check vehicle history
We strongly recommend you check the vehicle’s history before buying it. This will protect yourself from buying a lemon.
At auctions, people may sell vehicles that were previously in accidents or broken cars disguised as intact.
You can check full vehicle’s history with its VIN by ordering a VIN.Doctor report on our website.
Once you have chosen a lot, you need to bid on our website, specifying the maximum price you are willing to pay for the vehicle. But in fact, the winning bid can be less than the one you placed.
For instance, if you place a bid of $5,000, but no one offers more than $4,000, you will win the bid. The price of the vehicle will be $4,000 for you. So even if you see a current bid is $100 - place your maximum bid, we will raise your bid by one increment only if necessary.
