HOW IT WORKS:
You can come and bid live, our address is 1968 Leghorn Street, Mountain View, Ca 94043. Viewing of cars starts at 10:00am
. Bidding begins at 11:00am
. The vehicles we sell are the unclaimed vehicles which have been impounded. You may view the list of vehicles and pictures the Monday
before after 1:00pm
. We charge a $40.00 bidder fee per year.
This will allow you to bid for as many auctions as you want to attend for one year. After the first year, a $25.00 renewal fee. Each vehicle sold will have an additional $10.00 processing fee. You must have a valid identification to bid. At the end of each auction there will be 2 giveaways. Every registered bidder in attendance will be entered to win a gift card or a cut the line pass.
The cut the line pass will allow you to move to the front of the line to process your paperwork. You will return your bidder paddle at the conclusion of each auction. If you do not return it, you will have to pay for a new bidder’s permit.
When you sign in for the auction you will be issued your assigned bidding paddle. You may look at the vehicles starting at 10:00am. You may not enter the vehicle or make any changes to the vehicle. We will start and drive each vehicle before opening bidding on that vehicle. Whichever vehicle has a cone on top is the one we are currently auctioning.
There is a $100.00 cash deposit required on all winning bids up to $1,000.00. Any vehicle over 1000.00 will require a $200.00 deposit. If you are the winning bidder, the deposit is due immediately before we move on to the next vehicle. If you change your mind later, we will not refund you the deposit.
According to state law we will remove all license plates prior to the auction.
You may pay for your vehicle and get your paperwork immediately after the auction ends. You have until 4:30pm the day of the auction to pay and pickup your vehicle, paperwork and keys. We accept CASH ONLY. Vehicles not picked up on auction day will be assessed a $50.00 per day storage fee.
We will only put paperwork in the permitted bidders name. If you want the paperwork in a different name, that person will need to get their own bidder permit. If you lose your paperwork, we can order you a new set for $35.00. You must be able to provide us the vehicle info to order a new set. A duplicate set will be issued, but we will not remake the paperwork or change any of the information that was on the original set. It may take up to 7 days to get the duplicate set. Payment must be made in advance.
We will group the vehicles into two categories; Runners and Non-Runners. Runners are considered vehicles that have a key that start and drive. Non-Runners are considered wrecked vehicles, vehicles with no key, or vehicles we have a key for but do not run. If we know what is wrong with the vehicle it will be written on the windshield along with all other vehicle info (reg, mileage, title status, dmv fees, year, make and model). We make every effort to give you as much information as possible. However, this is a guide only and there may be more problems with the vehicle we are not aware of. EVERY VEHICLE IS SOLD AS/IS WHERE/IS. THERE IS NO WARRANTY OR RETURNS ON OUR VEHICLES, IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO CHECK THE VEHICLES BEFORE YOU BID. IF YOU HAVE THE WINNING BID, IT IS YOURS. IF YOU CHANGE YOUR MIND OR DO NOT WANT THE VEHICLE YOU WILL LOSE YOUR DEPOSIT.
We are unable to address and technical questions about any of the vehicles, any information about previous auctions, or complaints about pictures or vehicle information online.
