Once your purchase has been confirmed you will receive an email containing an invoice for your purchase. The invoice will include all of the necessary costs to complete your purchase, including the cost of the vehicle, auction fees, cost of transportation from auction site to your delivery location ( if you order it ), document transfer and mail fee, service fees. The fee to purchase a vehicle under $2000 is $190, and $295 for vehicles that cost more than $2000. Documents and mailing fee is 50$.
The payment is due 5 pm PST the next day after the auction to avoid any possible storage fees and late charges. Payment will only be accepted through bank wire transfer in US dollars. The invoice will include instructions and all necessary information regarding how to complete the bank wire transfer. Please consult your bank to learn about any associated fees and length of time for a wire transfer before bidding on a listing. International customers may be required to pay an additional fee from the sending bank.
According the state law, all vehicles purchased by Georgia residents will be subject to a 6-8% sales tax charge as well as a $399 transaction fee and, depending on the location, a county discretionary sales surtax. Please consult etax.dor.ga.gov for further information. All other state residents will need to pay any required sales tax when registering their purchased vehicle in their home state. Car dealers will need to submit a copy of their dealer license and state retail tax certificate to confirm their tax exempt status.
Please keep in mind that you will not be able to use any or all of your security deposit to pay any costs associated with purchasing a vehicle.
Late Fee and Penalties
If full payment is not received from the buyer by the next day after the auction, the buyer will be required to pay a late fee of $50 or 2% (whichever is greater) of sale cost. This fee will be applied to each individual vehicle purchased. If the payment is not received within seven days, the security deposit will be forfeited and we will then be able to relist the vehicle at our sole discretion.
If you believe you will have difficulty making the payment on time, especially if you are an international customer, you may want to pre-pay the total expected cost of the vehicle prior to making a bid.
If you fail to pick up your purchased vehicle within three days, you will be charged a $40 storage fee per day until you retrieve the vehicle.
No Storage Fee: We guarantee that you will not be responsible for any vehicle storage fees as long as your invoice for vehicle purchase and shipping charges is paid in full and on time.
