Live bidding is a feature available only to our Premier & Expert members – it allows you to bid online in real-time on a vehicle of your choice during a live auction. Bidding live is simple and exhilarating!

To begin bidding live, click "Join Now" on the vehicle of your choice to access the live auction block. Each live auction can last anywhere between 3 to 4 hours, depending on the number of vehicles on that lane. Once your item is up, you will see images, vehicle information, and bidding details. Please note that live bidding is very fast and can last anywhere from a few seconds to a minute, depending on the demand of the vehicle.

When your item is up on the block, click the "Bid" button if you are willing to make a bid in the amount shown. It will become the new high bid unless another participating bidder outbids it. Alternatively, you may click "Auto Bid" and enter your maximum bid – it will prompt the automatic system to bid automatically on your behalf to outbid other bidders and up until your maximum bid if needed. The system will only bid enough to outbid other bidders and will not present your max bid unless necessary to outbid. All maximum bids submitted are confidential and not visible to any other bidders.
