Once you become a member, you will have access to all vehicles with pictures and prices, and you can start shopping at America’s largest auctions. You can also save your searches and add vehicles to your watch list to be notified of newly arriving vehicles. All registrations start with a basic membership, after which you can choose one of the convenient subscription options at any time. For a basic membership (not all features are available), no credit card is required. For full functionality and additional discounts, you can switch to a Plus or Premium subscription.

Once you have created your account, you will receive a confirmation email with a validation link. Click on the link in the email to activate your account. An email verification process is required to improve the accuracy of membership information.

*The maximum bid and the number of vehicles that can be bid simultaneously are determined by the security deposit you placed. The higher the deposit, the higher the maximum bid amount and the number of vehicles that can be bid simultaneously.


2. Purchasing Power

Set your purchasing power

Purchasing Power is determined by the deposit. To use "BUY IT NOW" and "BID", you must place a deposit in your account. The minimum deposit is 0 or 20% of the "BID / BUY IT NOW" amount.

We need a security deposit to ensure that you confirm the earnestness of “Bidding” or “Buy It Now”.

On the "PROFILE" page, in the "FINANCE" section, click the "Payment" button and select your payment method. You can use your credit card, ApplePay or GooglePay to pay the deposit amount. If you do not want to use them for any reason, you have the option of a bank transfer. Instructions for bank transfer can be found in your user profile or requested by email: memberaccount@usaautolicit.com

Please provide your name or membership number in the comment when making the transfer so that we can properly credit your payment.

All payments will be refunded immediately upon your request, provided there are no offers or receivables. The "Payment Refund" link will appear in the lower right corner of the "PROFILE" page. Please follow the link and instructions to enable us to process your refund. The transfer time for a bank transfer is 5-7 business days. Please note that a maximum of bank transfer fee will be deducted per refund. Please note that we deduct $ 0.95 (95 cents) + 4.8% of the amount for each credit card refund as a refund transaction fee. If the "BID" or "BUY IT NOW" was unsuccessful, the deposit can be used for the next " BID / BUY IT NOW" or refunded upon request.

3. Buying a car


Vehicle search

Search thousands of vehicle types, brands and models on USAautolicit.
The auction vehicle database is updated daily with more than
3,000 vehicles. You can search by additional criteria, including but not limited to: based on document type, vehicle condition, mileage, or even color.



The BID option

Any Bid you see and submit through our website is a Pre-Bid.

Set your bid and leave the rest to our system!
For example, you can enter a maximum bid of $10,000 USD and if your bid was the highest bid in the PRELIMINARY bidding round, your bid will be submitted on the Live Auction by the system. If your bid is the highest bid on the live auction and it meets the seller’s reserve price, then you are the winner. If the seller's reserve price is lower than your maximum bid and no one has overbid you during the live auction, you can win the vehicle for less than your maximum bid. Remember, if your maximum bid is $10,000 USD, you could potentially win the vehicle for less than your maximum bid, provided it is higher than any other bid and the seller’s reserve price is met.

Please note that if you are the highest bidder during a live auction and the reserve price is not met, the vehicle can still be sold to you with the approval of the seller.

Pre-bidding closes one hour before the start of the live auction.

The BUY IT NOW option

Here at USAautolicit we offer plenty of vehicles with the "BUY IT NOW" option. This allows vehicles to be purchased at the touch of a button at a specified price. As soon as you receive an email confirming your purchase, the vehicle is yours. * Each auction vehicle has an auction fee. Please check the auction fee calculator before bidding.

Order according to your ideas

As a registered Premium user of USAautolicit, navigate to the Services - Vehicle Purchasing menu item in your personal profile and fill out the inquiry form. You must have at least a minimum deposit to complete the form. Otherwise, we cannot send an offer.
