How do I bid?

Only members can bid in AutoBidMaster auctions. No Dealer License required.

To become a member and bid:

1. Register for a membership
2. Place a refundable security deposit of $600 or more
3. Upload a copy of a government issued photo ID

Once the above is completed, bidding will be enabled.

We recommend you to enter your maximum bid during the Preliminary Bidding, this way Copart's Bid4U (Bid for You) feature incrementally bids on the vehicle of your choice on your behalf. If you are outbid you will receive an email and you are provided the opportunity to re-bid on the vehicle.

You can also buy a vehicle that has the “Buy It Now” or “Make an Offer” option available in the “Bid Information” section of the lot page.




Please Note: Once a "Buy It Now" is submitted the buyer is obligated to pay the amount of the offer (plus all applicable fees) that they submitted or authorize (or is otherwise submitted or authorized through or under the bidder's Member Account).

When you place a bid, make an offer or buy it now you are agreeing to purchase the item. The bid/offer cannot be lowered or retracted.
