For Independent Auctions YES, for dealers, MAYBE.

Live bid auto auctions for car dealers

What is a Online Open Bid Auction?

Running an auction is really easy with Auction Simplified™ because our software allows for bidders to view cars online in advance of the sale with proxy bid or just “Buy Me Now” if they really want the car right away.

 Open Bid Auto Auction: This auction is called Open because bidders can see the other bids. They can bid in $100 increments from there or place a proxy bid and the software will bid automatically for them.

  • Sellers like it because bidders get into a bidding battle onsite and online which sometimes can drive the price through the roof
  • Buyers like it because they can find bargains and sometimes get a bargain when no one is bidding.

How does an Online Open Bid Auction Work?

Indy Auctions and Dealers post their cars online for buyers to view. They list an end date and time and set a viewing day for buyers to look at the cars. They can view the condition report and photos and bid completely online. Buyers can also visit the dealership or auction on the viewing day and inspect the cars for themselves before they bid.

Buyers/Wholesalers can place their bids online any time a sale is running. Once the sale ends, the computer tabulates the winners and a notice is emailed and /or texted to the buyer and seller.
