The Bid4U service is our unique and intuitive feature to help ensure that you win the car you’ve been looking for. Instead of sitting and waiting to increase your bid each time another bidder increases theirs, you can allow our system to bid automatically for you up to your preset bid limit! You can use Bid4U in both the preliminary and live auctions. Here’s how it works:

Determine Your Maximum Bid Amount

The key to the Bid4U service is to enter your maximum bid amount at the start of bidding. Once you find a car you like you will need to determine the most you would be willing to pay for the vehicle. This is your ‘maximum bid amount’.

Place Your Deposit

Once you have determined your maximum bid amount, you will need to place a deposit on your account to be able to cover this amount. We require a 10% of what you intend to bid as a deposit to allow you to bid up to that amount; so if you are looking to bid $8,000, we will need an $800 deposit first. The minimum deposit required by AutoBidMaster is $400, which gives you a bidding limit of $4,000.

Enter Your Maximum Bid Amount

After you have placed your deposit you are ready to bid. Enter your maximum bid amount in the Bid field, and hit submit. And that’s it! Our system will automatically bid incrementally on your behalf up until this amount. It’s really that simple.

If you need help with any of these steps, or have any further questions, don’t hesitate to contact our support team by email at, or call us weekdays from 6am to 4pm PST at 1(503)298-4300. Find the car right your you at
