is it the way to go?

Our dealers think so.

What is an Automotive Bid Sale?

Bid sales, also known as a Silent Auto Auction or just a Bid, are an incredibly powerful type of auction because they are a win-win for wholesalers and dealers alike.

Silent Bid Sale: This is a closed auction. All bidders submit their (secret) bids online. When the bidding period is over, the high bidder wins and pays what he/she bid. (Tie bids will go to the first bidder)

  • Sellers like it because they sometimes get high bids they would never have achieved with a traditional auction.
  • Buyers like it because they sometimes can snipe a bargain.

How Bid Sales Work:

Dealers post their cars on Auction Simplified™ without showing any price. They list an end date and time and set a viewing day for buyers to look at the cars. If the buyers have a relationship with the seller and trust their description, they can bid online. Buyers can also visit the dealership on the viewing day and inspect the cars for themselves then bid.
Buyers/Wholesalers can place their bid at any time up until the bid sale ends. Once the bid sale ends, the computer tabulates the winners and a notice is emailed and/or texted to the buyer and seller.

Dealers should consider holding a silent auction.
