Lets Get Started!

What is Bid or Buy?

Bid Or Buy is the term used in online car auctions, as two open options for any participant in the auction to obtain the car, or the Item auctioned. One option is to place your bid on cars with other participants until the car auction ends, and your second option is "Buy Now" that allows you to buy the car for a listed fixed price right away!

Bid or buy auctions allow clients a flexibility with their buying decision, giving them the chance to withstand other bidder and win the bidding price, or directly purchase the vehicle! If you cant beat them.. buy them ! it is worth trying to experience bidding with other auction participant on the same car.. and most of the times you get a good deal!

How Do "Bid or Buy Cars" Work?

With the help of our search filters, you can find thousands of listed vehicles on our online auction. You can optimize the results to your preferences.
Whether you are looking for salvage cars, clean cars or both, you can bid or buy vehicles in your city or even outside. We will get it shipped for you wherever you are!

Bid For Cars

The Bid For Cars Option: Whatever bidding you see and whatever bids you are submitting on Bid Export bid or buy auction is PRE bidding. For example, you can place your maximum bid as $5,000 and if your bid was the highest bid of the PRE bidding round your bid on cars will be submitted at the live car auction. If your bid is the highest bid of the live sale as well, and meets the seller expectation then the car is sold, and you are the winner!

If the seller ask price is lower than your maximum bid and no one outbid you during the live sale auction then you can win the vehicle for less than your maximum bid. Remember if your maximum bid is $10,000 you can potentially win the vehicle for less than that, assuming that it is greater than any other bids and seller reserve price is met.

If I'm the highest bidder at the time of the auction, does that mean I won the car?

Salvage Cars For Bid or Buy

A salvage title indicates that in the past a car has suffered some sort of substantial damage. If you're a car shopper on a budget, cars that hold them can be cheap options — if you know what you're getting. It is not a project for beginners or anyone who wants a 100% trouble-free car. If a vehicle has been in an accident and the total damage exceeds a certain percentage of the car's value (ranging from 75% to 90%), the insurance company will decide that it is not economically feasible to repair it and declare it a "total loss."

If the salvage vehicle is rebuilt, the "Salvage" title brand might be changed to a "Rebuildable Salvage." Usually such a change requires an inspection. As well it might be with "Junk" title, these cars mostly go to dismantlers, and body shops, or for extra parts for your daily or project car.
