How To Ship & Transport A Car You’ve Won At An Auction
There are a few things you’ll need to do to ensure that the process of transporting your newly purchased vehicle from the auction site goes as smoothly as possible.
The first step is to pay for the car – plus any taxes or storage fees that may apply. You’ll also need to take care of the paperwork, either personally or through a representative. Typically, the auction house will allow you to store your vehicle free of charge – or at a minimum rate – for a certain period of time while you arrange transportation.
You’ll also need to supply your driver with the information they need to locate and pick up your car. This information includes:
- The lot number where the car is located
- Delivery address
- Phone number
- VIN number
- Receipt from the auction house
Please note, if the driver is unable to complete the pickup due to insufficient information or incomplete paperwork, they may be forced to leave the car behind. This can result in cancellation and rescheduling fees, so make sure everything is in order prior to the pickup day.

What Types Of Cars Can You Find At An Auction?
With more vehicles being sold at auctions than ever before, you can buy anything from salvage or ex-fleet vehicles, right up to brand new cars.
One of the most popularly traded cars from dealers are off-lease vehicles which have been returned after their lease term, or have exceeded their mileage. Many of these vehicles are still running perfectly.
Salvage vehicles have usually been involved in accidents that have seen them written off. Buying a salvage vehicle at auction can be an excellent option for people who know how to repair cars. They can also be purchased as a source of valuable or difficult-to-find parts.
Company or Fleet Cars
The condition of a company or fleet car will vary depending on how much it was used, what it was used for, and how badly it was thrashed by the previous driver.
If a repossessed car isn’t claimed or paid for within a certain period of time, they often end up being sent to auction. This opens up a lot of excellent opportunities for eagle-eyed bidders to find a great deal on a great car.
While auctions are typically associated with second hand vehicles, you can also find brand new vehicles on offer as well. New cars are typically auctioned by dealers to make room for new stock.
This means you can buy a brand new vehicle at a lower price, simply for being a year or two out of date.
