  • What does Engine/Vehicle Starts mean?

    When the vehicle was checked-in to the Auction Clearing House’s lot, the engine/vehicle (a) started (either with or without a jump) and (b) was able to run at idle. There is no warranty, guaranty or representation that (a) the vehicle can be driven on the roads or highways within any state in the US or is roadworthy, (b) that the vehicle will start (either with or without a jump), (c) be able to run at idle and/or (d) move forward or backward when picked up from the Auction Clearing House or thereafter.

    Since all of the information provided on our site is from the auction clearing house, it is your sole responsibility to determine, confirm, research and/or inspect the vehicle prior to bidding on and/or buying the car. This vehicle is being sold “as-is, where-is” with all faults. Auto Auction Mall has not verified this information in any way.

    Also, keep in mind, and this is important, if the auction clearing house stated that the vehicle starts that means the vehicle started when the vehicle arrived at the auction facility and was only tested on that day (i.e. it was not tested again). Between that time and when the vehicle is delivered to you, it could stop working for various reasons. The auction clearing house does not provide any guaranty or warranty on this and neither can we.
