On Approval – The seller has reserved the right to approve the final high bid achieved during the live auction. The seller has until 6:00 pm PST two business days after the sale to approve the bid. The high bidder is obligated to purchase the vehicle if their bid is approved by the seller within the approval period.

The Three Pillars of a Successful Online Auction

AutoBidMaster.com

It wasn’t long ago that salvage auto auctions were limited to those with auto dealer licenses, but this isn’t the case anymore. Auto auctions online for the public now provide an opportunity to everyone to buy their dream car, without having to break the bank. Online auctions help you to make an informed decision regarding the vehicle you are planning to buy, as you can read all the details about the vehicles before you place your bids. Here are the three most important aspects of an online auto auction for the public:

Convenience

Gone are the days when you had to search magazines, local newspapers or ask family and friends for any reliable contacts to purchase an old vehicle. The hassles of making calls to dealers and making appointments to check out the vehicle are now things of the past. Online public auto auction sites such as AutoBidMaster provide multiple images of the vehicles for sale. Online auto auctions have streamlined processes, so that buyers don’t need to chase dealers and sellers.

No-Stress Process

Members can enjoy the shopping experience from the comfort of their home. No stress, no pushy salesperson to deal with, and no large crowds. You go through the online bidding process at our site while sitting in your slippers at home. There is absolutely no pressure from the auctioneer side to purchase a vehicle that doesn’t fulfill your needs.

Peace of Mind

Most online auction sites offer a vehicle inspection program where a professional automotive assessor inspects your vehicle. In addition, after you win the bid and own the vehicle, you have the option to choose among trusted transportation companies to deliver your vehicle to any place you want. In short, by buying a car through online auto auction, you can not only be sure that you are making a wise investment, but also ensure that your investment reaches its destination.

That’s Not All

Online public auto auctions are more comfortable than on-site auctions, as you only need to register yourself as a bidder. You get the benefit of flexibility as well. Although there are several online auction websites available, you should go for those who have years of experience and have built a reputation as a being customer-friendly.

Pick the Bidding Style That’s Right for You

AutoBidMaster Bidding Style

Bidding with AutoBidMaster couldn’t be easier and we have enough flexibility to fit any person. Here are some tips on how to use our auction system to fit your style.

Buy It Now

Certain cars have an option called “Buy It Now”. This option will have a price listed next to it. If you agree to pay that exact price (There are no negotiations on Buy It Now.) you are awarded the vehicle immediately!

Set and Forget

Just set your maximum bid limit during the Preliminary Bidding stage, and let our system bid automatically for you.

In the Live Auction this incremental bidding continues without going over your limit. This method saves you time and does all the heavy lifting for you. When you win, we automatically notify you.

Manual Bidding

If you’re a hands-on type of person and want more control over how much you bid, you can update your bids in real-time directly on the website whenever you see fit. This way you know exactly how much is being bid at any time. This generally requires more of your effort but gives you more control.

You can use manual bidding in both Preliminary Bidding and in the Live Auction. We strongly recommend watching some live auctions before entering one to make live bids.

You can select whichever option fits your style. You are also able to select any of these for each vehicle you bid on; you aren’t locked into any one of these. Bid and win at AutoBidMaster!

Why You Should Get A Vehicle History Report Before Bidding

AutoBidMaster.com

When you’re on the search for a salvage car from AutoBidMaster, it’s important to do some research before placing your bid. An important step of the research process is to get a vehicle history report, also called a Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) Report. Here are some of the things you can expect to find in one of these reports.

Title History

Along with the insurance history, it’s important to know if a car has been slapped with a branding that may make it difficult to register in your state. A vehicle history report will let you know if it is a clear or salvage item, if it has ever been rebuilt, vandalized, or encountered any types of damage, along with any other sort of branding. After learning the branding of a car, contact your local DMV to find out what it will take to register this car, before making your purchase.

Insurance Records

Learn if an insurance company has previously declared the vehicle a total loss. If so, you will want to make sure it was later rebranded as a rebuilt or salvage car. This will also give you an indication if the vehicle has been involved in any accidents that may result in costly repairs down the line.

Lien Information

Discover if any banks or insurance companies hold a lien on a car before buying it. A lien indicates if there are any outstanding load balances on a car. If there are, it means the lien holder owns the car until the lien/loan is paid off. So make sure you’re aware of any liens before making a purchase. This will also impact you if you’re looking to export a vehicle out of the US, as many countries will not allow you to import items with a lien.

This information is available in a vehicle history report and will help you make the right choice when bidding on a car from AutoBidMaster. We make it as easy as possible for you to get this information by partnering with one of the most reputable VIN report companies, ClearVin. Just look on our lot listing pages, and next to the VIN number you’ll see a link to ClearVin.
