Traditional car shopping has been under duress for some time now, and even more so with the onset of quarantine during COVID-19. When buying a car online during quarantine, there are some measures you can take to make sure you’re getting the best deal at the best price, safely.

Buying a car online has minimal contact

The best thing about online auto auctions like AutoBidMaster is that you can do everything from the comfort of your home. From registration to placing your deposit to winning your vehicle, we’re 100% online. Many banks can arrange wire transfers online too! That way, you don’t have to risk traveling to and from dealerships and visiting high-traffic areas.

Lots of car buying options

When you’re looking for a used car, clean or salvage title, you’re often limited by location. You can only drive so far in a day to look at a car, right? When you’re buying a car online, auctions open up your possibilities. With over 100,000 cars in our inventory and daily updates, you have way more options to choose from.

The important thing to remember if you’re buying a car online is to have it inspected by a third party and to get a VIN Check Report. That way, you’ll know exactly what the car has been through and you can accurately plan your budget. In our opinion, a car VIN lookup is an essential step in the car buying process, as it can uncover potential issues that may not be immediately apparent.

Easy shipping options

With AutoBidMaster, you can buy a car online and have it delivered right to your door. Each page on AutoBidMaster has a shipping quote calculator that’ll tell you how much it’ll cost and how long it’ll take to get your car delivered right to your door if you’re shipping in the US. If you’re shipping internationally, we can arrange for the car to be shipped a port in your destination country.

Excellent customer service

Buying a car online doesn’t mean you won’t have access to excellent service.
