Step 2 - Security Deposit 

Provide a refundable security deposit. The security deposit should be 10% of your maximum bid / buy it now price. The minimum deposit is $400 which allows you to bid on vehicles up to $4,000. You can request to have your security deposit refunded at any time. Your security deposit does not apply towards the purchase of the vehicle.

Step 3 - Bid on a car

Find a car and place a bid! Search through our inventory of over 190,000+ vehicles to find the right one. We're confident that you will find something that you will like 😊

If you win the vehicle you will also need to have the vehicle shipped. Vehicles are not allowed to be driven off the lot regardless of their condition. Please use our shipping calculator to estimate the cost of shipping.
