AutoBidMaster TRUST Shield Program

At AutoBidMaster, we understand that purchasing a used or salvage vehicle over the internet involves a certain amount of risk. However, we want you to be confident when bidding on and buying vehicles through www.autobidmaster.com and that's why our business is built on TRUST. So we offer you the AutoBidMaster TRUST Shield program for your protection.
Truthful - If you pay AutoBidMaster for your vehicle (including all related fees) and your Member Account is in good standing, your vehicle will be available for pickup.
Real - Valid legal ownership can be transferred to you and no undisclosed liens impair the vehicle ownership document.
Unchanged - The vehicle images on the auction listing represent the general appearance of the exterior and interior of the vehicle at the time of sale.
Specifications - The year, make, and model listed on the auction Lot Details are correct and for vehicles less than 10 years old the odometer reading on the ownership documents is accurate within 1,000 miles.
Timely - You will be able to pick up your vehicle during the Copart auction facility's regular business hours.

Under the AutoBidMaster TRUST Shield program, if any of these conditions are not met, AutoBidMaster will refund the purchase price and all buyer's fees, subject to the terms, conditions, limitations, and exclusions stated below.
