Whether shopping for a car online or visiting an auction in person, we’ve compiled a list of some of the most popular sites and locations for auto auctions currently available.
- Auto Auction Mall
This is the largest database of salvage, pre-owned, and used cars. No other site allows such customizable options, allowing you to find virtually any car you want.
Their support staff is also very knowledgeable and will walk you through the bidding process, account setup and financing. Everything you need is right here!
While Abetter.bid doesn’t have the inventory (approx. 100,000) as its competitors, it does offer a new inventory of vehicles daily; including electrics, hybrids, sedans, ATV’s, and motorcycles. And the best part: no dealer license is required to bid!
- America’s Auto Auction
Sure you can bid online, but when it comes to vehicles, wouldn’t you rather see it in person?
With over 20 locations throughout the US, America’s Auto Auction creates an atmosphere for buying and selling vehicles you just can’t get online. Their on-site detail and mechanical shop helps get your vehicle at its best before sale and inspection team is ready after you buy. With their online inventory, you can search for exactly what you need before, so you know what to expect after.
Exclusivity does have its perks! Some auction sites, like OVE.com, are for members only and those dues can pay for huge savings when it comes to bidding on a vehicle. With annual sales like the $10K & Under Sale (exclusive to members only) it’s worth spending a little to gain a lot!
- Ebay Motors
Ebay Motors runs very similarly as the world’s largest auction site, and the same rules and strategy do apply. Ebay Motors offers 2 different seller types: Dealership and private sellers. They do not, however, offer the same types of deals you’d find at other auctions, but they do offer more variety such as specific car parts or accessories.
Signing up for an account with Dashub will open you up to an inventory of approximately 200,000 selections, exclusive for members. Most of these vehicles are sold at a fraction of the cost. The only downside is that sales are open to bidders all over the world, allowing most dealerships to auction off and win most bids.

Answers to Your Car Moving Questions
The hardest thing for people researching car moving companies to understand is that the prices they are getting are not hard and fast gaurantees, but rather ESTIMATES of what one company thinks it will take to get a vehicle moved promptly versus another company's opinion of what it will take. Don't be fooled, there are not carriers committed to take your vehicle at these quoted prices, the company you choose will still have to get to work getting a carrier to commit to move it at the price they quote you.
Your total price breaks down into two parts, the broker's fee (or 'deposit' as everyone calls it) and the carriers fee (your COD amount) Make no mistake about this, EVERYONE YOU ARE GETTING SALES CALLS FROM IS GOING TO BROKER YOUR MOVE. In this industry, there are brokers who try to fool you into thinking that they are the actual carriers and there are an equal amount of carriers who sell themselves on the fact that they have a truck or two but are not being honest about the fact that they broker out 90% of the orders they book. Here is a quick easy way to tell, if a company takes an up front fee, whether they call it a deposit or any other name, they are a broker. Carriers do not take any payment until the vehicle is delivered.
In our opinion, you are crazy to do so. Have you ever been paid up front for the work that you perform for your employer? Why would you pay a fee up front when there are reliable and trustworthy companies like ours that won't ask for it until we provide you with your carriers details?
The average transit time from pick up to delivery on any vehicle going coast to coast will be between one and two weeks. From there you can figure your transit time based on how far your vehicle is traveling, i.e. from either coast to the Midwest might average 3-7 days.
