Copart Spokane stocks a constantly-changing inventory of exactly what you'd suspect: salvage vehicles, late-model and older, cars, SUVs, light trucks, all with salvage or clean titles. And the auctions – fast-paced affairs – can be great fun for those with honed competitive instincts and steady fingers on the mouse.
Auctions are great fun if you know what you're bidding on. These sales attract knowledgeable people who aren't content merely to view a possible salvage vehicle on the web site. They want to know more, so they inspect. The Copart Spokane lot is open for vehicle inspections from one day to one hour before the auction. Just bring your AutoBidMaster password and Bidder Number. Not a member of AutoBidMaster? That's easily fixed. Just provide your contact information, US driver's license data (passport for International bidders), pick your level of membership – Preferred comes with lots of perks, advantages and discounts – and put down a security deposit (amount determined by your bidding intentions, i.e., how many vehicles you want to bid on and how high you want to go). Since all sales are final, the security deposit is in case someone fails to complete a transaction. Other than that, the deposit is fully refundable.
OK, you've joined and been to the Copart Spokane lot to inspect your vehicle, or had AutoBidMaster do it for you. Now, the action begins. Preliminary bidding, done up to an hour before the auction, determines the starting price. After that, it's up to you and your mouse. Or Copart's "Bid4U" service can do it for you, according to your instructions. Once you've won, you have seven calendar days free storage to claim your vehicle. But be advised: No vehicle can be driven off the lot. It's up to you to arrange towing or shipment. Or you can arrange for AutoBidMaster to handle your shipping arrangements.
After that . . . when you're bragging about the bargains you got, don't forget to mention where you got them.
