Bidding with Salvagebid is easy, and flexible enough to fit your style. Below are some helpful tips on how to use our auction bidding system to your best advantage.
Set and Forget
You can enter your maximum bid limit early on, and let our system bid automatically in minimum increments up to your limit. At the close of preliminary bidding, if you are the high bidder, our system automatically enters you into the Live Auction. In the Live Auction this incremental bidding continues without going over your limit. This method saves you time and does all the heavy lifting for you.
If you want more control over how much you bid, you can update your bids in real-time directly on the website whenever you see fit. This way you know exactly how much is being bid at any time and have complete control over how much is bid. This generally requires more of your time but gives you more control.
Wait Until the Live Auction
This option is only available to our Premium members. If you aren’t the high bidder during the preliminary auction, or didn’t even participate in the preliminary auction, you will still have access to the Live Auction. Here you can manually engage with the auction. This will give you the advantage of bidding up to the last possible moment to ensure you win the car you want.
Buy It Now
Certain cars have an option called “Buy It Now”. This option will have a price listed next to it. If you agree to pay that exact price (There are no negotiations on Buy It Now.) you are awarded the vehicle immediately!
You can select whichever option fits your style and budget. You are also able to select any of these for each vehicle you bid on; you aren’t locked into any one of these. Bid and win at Salvagebid!
