AutoBidMaster can help you save BIG (no jokes) if you’re going auto shopping. As a leading Copart broker, we’re proud to provide access to more than 150,000 vehicles. AutoBidMaster also provides all-in-one services, so you can book shipping and check the background history of a vehicle straight away from the lot page. Placing your first bid is easier than you think, but before making your first (or next) purchase, you should pick the right AutoBidMaster membership. We’re listing all their differences to help you choose the most suitable one.

AutoBidMaster Membership: A Brief Overview of What It Is

AutoBidMaster membership has four subscription levels that allow you to enjoy our services in full. They are: 

  • Guest,
  • Basic,
  • Advanced,
  • and Premium. 

All of them are designed to deliver the best possible experience in AutoBidMaster auctions. The difference lies in benefits guaranteed with the different packages. We provide memberships for a year. You can either renew it or cancel the automatic renewal. Note that membership charges are NOT refundable (except for cases described here).

AutoBidMaster Guest Membership

The new entry-level AutoBidMaster membership is the Guest one. This is a good option for those who are ready to feel the joy of bidding. Registration is free of charge, but you’re obliged to place a refundable security deposit that determines your Buyer Power. With the Guest AutoBidmaster membership, you can attain a vehicle worth up to $2,500, and the transaction fee will be $299 or 10% (whichever is greater). Alas, there are no free VIN checks and no access to live bidding. If you’re looking for more than this, we suggest upgrading to another membership.

AutoBidMaster Basic Membership

This is a way more beneficial option. With the Basic level AutoBidMaster membership, you can buy a used car worth up to $5,000. An opportunity to check its background history is also available as you obtain a single (1) free VIN report from our trusted partner, ClearVIN. More importantly, you can take part in live car auctions, only for $49 per year. The transaction fee is reduced to 9% (or $299, whichever is greater).

AutoBidMaster Advanced Membership

It’s time for the gems. Advanced membership lets you get much more perks. There are no restrictions on the maximum bid and on the number of cars you can purchase. In addition, you can even buy salvage cars without bidding. Ten (10) free VIN checks are also available to you. Be on the safe side and get as much information about a car as possible. 

Good news: the transaction fee downgrades to 7% or $299 (whichever is greater). Jumping to the Advanced membership will cost you only $199 a year. But that’s not all, we’ve got an even more exciting deal.

AutoBidMaster Premium Membership

This is the top-tier offer we have for you. Premium membership has everything that you have dreamt of. The number of available free VIN checks is doubled: you get twenty (20) instead of ten (10). Transaction and processing fees keep droppin’: $200 or 4%, whichever is greater. On top of that, you’re eligible for a 5% shipping discount. And, finally, you’ll enjoy the buyer’s concierge service. Our dedicated teammate will help you with e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g, from bidding to paying. This can be had for $349 per year.
