Bidding/Buying process

After you submit your bid/offer through the website, we will submit your bid on the auction, or we will submit your offer to the selling Insurance Company, Bank or selling dealer.
If I am the highest bidder at the indicated bidding end time, does that mean that I won the car?

No, this means that you are the highest bidder on our website, and we will submit your bid. If the car is for sale by the auction, we will place your bid on this particular auction; however, there can be floor bidders and USA dealers that will bid on the same vehicle, and if any of them will put a higher bid than yours then you will not win the car. However, due to the expensive repair services in USA and Canada, foreign buyers tend to put higher bids than domestic USA / Canada car dealers. If the car is for sale by the Insurance Company, Bank, Salvage yard or a car dealer, we will submit your highest bid to the seller, and only if the seller approves your bid, you will win the car. This is why we advise you to place reasonable bids, not to waste our time and yours.
