People from all over the world participate in online car auctions hosted by Copart, while using our membership-based broker services.

Online vehicle auctions work almost like a physical live auction, only you don’t have to travel to the location of the auction to place your bid. You do all the bidding from the comfort of your home, office or on the go. All you need is access to a computer or smartphone.

Once you have located the perfect vehicle to bid on you must make the decision to place your maximum preliminary bid or participate in live bidding.

Preliminary Bidding occurs prior to the scheduled start of the Live Auction. Preliminary bids can be submitted starting from when the auction is assigned a sale date up to one hour before the start of the Live Auction. The highest bid received during the Preliminary Bidding period determines the starting bid of the Live Auction.  Placing a maximum preliminary bid does not mean that will be the amount you will pay for the car. When the auction begins our virtual bidder will bid on your behalf up to your maximum amount. By placing your maximum preliminary bid, you can go about your day and not worry about constantly checking the live auction.

Live Auction bidding is Copart’s live virtual online auction. Copart’s VB3 software allows you to participate in live auctions taking place throughout the United States and Canada.  Live bidding is exciting and happens extremely quick. You control your bidding by increasing your bid and may continue bidding until the time ends or stop bidding when you have met your maximum amount. When the bidding ends, the timer will circle, and the bidding is over.
