Frequently Asked Questions About the Public Auto Auction Process:
What do I need to bring to the auction in order to buy a car?
All you need is a current driver’s license and either cash or credit/debit card for payment.
Why are the cars so cheap? Are they flood damaged or salvage vehicles?
Typical public auctions do not sell any flood damaged vehicles. This is a common myth about public auto auctions. Auction cars are cheaper than CarMAX or Craigslist because they sell in high volume and most cars sold at auctions are sold at “wholesale” value which is much less than retail and private owner value. You can save thousands by cutting out the middle man and purchasing your car straight from an auction.
How do I view your inventory online? How do I find out the prices of cars?

Do the cars have a fixed priced or do they sell for what they bring in the auction?
Most auction cars will have a set “reserve” price. Much like on eBay Motors, this is the minimum that the seller will take for the vehicle. However, most reserve prices are flexible and negotiable. So if the reserve is more than you are willing to pay, you are welcome to make an offer and we will negotiate on your behalf with the seller.
