  • Are there storage fees if I cannot pick up my vehicle immediately?

    Once a vehicle is purchased, the Auction Clearing House provides a short a grace period within which to pick up the vehicle.  Generally, Auction Clearing House lots will give you 2-days of free storage (including the date that the vehicle was purchased) if the buy now option was used to purchase the vehicle and 3-days of free storage (including the date the vehicle was purchased/won) if you won the vehicle through auction.

    If the vehicle has not been picked up by this time, the Auction Clearing House will start charging a storage fee on a daily basis.  The storage fees can get as high as $30 – $75 per day (depending on the Auction Clearing House and each lot).

    We strongly recommend that you make payment and arrange transport for your car as soon as possible after you have purchased the car to avoid these unnecessary additional costs.

    Please keep in mind that if the vehicle is not picked up within 7-days from the sale date, the Auction Clearing House will re-list and sell your vehicle to cover their storage fees and if the sale price is not enough to cover the storage you will still be responsible for the balance owing to the auction clearing house.
