REGISTRATION - Please register here on this website at least 24 hours before your vehicle goes to live auction. If that's not possible we will do our best to get a bid placed for you
The “REGISTER” tab below will allow you to input the vehicle information, place a proxy bid (a proxy bid is the most you are willing to pay for a vehicle), and pay a $400 deposit via debit or credit card.
A minimun deposit of $400 is required to bid which will give you buying power of $4000 (10%). For example: $8000 bid will require $800 deposit. If you need to pay a deposit greater than $400 we will send you an additional email with a link to pay the amount owed to increase your deposit. Your deposit is 100% refundable once your transaction is complete and all fees have been paid. Your deposit cannot be applied to your purchase. We hold your deposit to pay late fees and storage fees if needed. You can also choose to leave your deposit on file with us to purchase future vehicles or request a refund after we have received all signed documents from you.
If you bid on a vehicle and don’t pay for whatever reason you will forfeit all of your deposit. Copart charges us $400 or 10% of bid amount (which ever amount is greater) to re-list the vehicle.
Once your deposit has been paid we will place a proxy bid at Copart on your behalf. Copart’s auto bidding system will automatically raise your bid (up to your max proxy bid) as other buyers bid against you. Once we place a bid for you it cannot be cancelled. Please contact us if you wish to raise your proxy bid.
If you are the high bidder when the auction ends and the price did not meet the seller’s minimum bid price, we will work with you and the seller to counter offer.
If you win the auction we will email you an invoice with all fees due and instructions on how to pay. All payments on vehicles must be made by 5pm on the following business day. The only form of payment we accept on vehicles is a wire transfer to our account at Bank of America.
You have 3 days (including the auction day) to pick up your vehicle before incurring storage fees. Storage fees vary by location. Generally on the 4th day you will be charged $5 and the fee will increase $5 everyday thereafter. Late fees and storage fees will be deducted from your deposit.
It is 100% buyer responsibility to coordinate the vehicle pickup and transport
