WELCOME TO OUR ONLINE AUCTION
Aspite Auto Auction is family owned and operated. We have been in the automotive and auction industries for over 55 years! We provide a personal customer service that you can not get from other “big” auction houses. We thank you for visiting our new and improved website and wish you the best of luck bidding.
Please read the following bidding information & FAQ's.
1. ONLINE-ONLY AUCTION IS JUST THAT, YOU MUST BID ONLINE
Our Auctions are now "online only". Which means all bids must be placed online. You must be a registered bidder with a good standing account in order to place a bid. ALL non-dealers are required to place a $200 deposit on each and every item you wish to bid on. This is a one time "Hold" placed on your credit card for the duration of the bidding process.
When bidding is open: All bidders will be notified by email/text or both (your choice), that they are the high bidder or have been "outbid". If you place a bid and are immediately outbid, this indicates another bidder has placed a proxy bid. We encourage proxy bidding to keep yourself in the bid.
If a bid is placed during the last minute of the auction, four minutes will be added to the auction end time to prevent "bid snipping".
Bids placed with under 30 seconds left may not make it due to credit card verification.
All Registered Dealers do not have a deposit. Your credit card will not be charged unless you are awarded the item/vehicle "winning" bidder. If you are not the "winning" bidder, the $200 hold is removed from your credit card. It may take 24-48 hours for the hold to be placed back on your card.
2. FOR ONLINE AND PRE-BIDDING
At the conclusion of the auction, the highest bidder will be notified as soon as the online auction has ended. This does not indicate that you have won the vehicle. You will receive a follow up email indicating that you are in fact “the winner” or that the reserve has not been met. At this time you will have the opportunity to negotiate.
Most vehicles for sale at auction will have a reserve amount set by the seller.
The high bidder will receive an email that they are the highest bidder and the reserve has not been met. They will have the opportunity to accept the reserve amount, stay at the bid, or counter offer. The Seller will also have one opportunity to counter your counter offer.
4. Is there a charge to register?
Registration is FREE and easy!
5. Can I view the inventory in person before bidding?
YES! All vehicles are available for preview the day before the online auction.
6. Do you have “Buy Now” vehicles?
YES! If you wish to view a vehicle listed as a “buy now” please contact customer service for viewing.
7. Can we sell your car for you?
