What do the Bid and/or the Buy Now amounts include?
The Bid and/or the Buy Now amounts set out in the car listing page only covers the current pre-bid or the Buy Now price of the vehicle. This amount does not include the additional fees related to the purchase of the vehicle.
When purchasing a vehicle you will be charged the following fees: i) an Auto Auction Mall fee: $299 (if the vehicle purchase price is below $3,500) or $349 (if the vehicle purchase price is $3,500 or above), ii) Documentation fee ($90), and iii) the Auction Clearing House fee (this fee varies depending on the final sale price and is charged by the Auction Clearing House). Transportation costs will be in addition to these fees and charged by the transport company.
To see these fees (other than the transportation costs), you can click the Fee Calculator located on each car listing.
Please note that the Auction Clearing House fee in the Fee Calculator is based on either the then highest pre-bid price or, if the car has a Buy Now option, the Buy Now price. Also, the Auction Clearing House fee will change if the final purchase price of the vehicle is different than either of these amounts. Therefore, we have given you the ability to input the purchase price you want to pay for the vehicle in the Fee Calculator in order to see what the Auction Clearing House fee will be.
