Ways to Bid & Buy at SCA® Auction

At Salvage Car Auctions, we offer our members the best auction experience with three convenient ways to bid & buy salvage, clean and repairable cars for sale.

  • Buy It Now

    Bypass pre-bidding and live digital auctions on certain vehicles by instantaneously purchasing cars online with our "Buy It Now" option. Although you may still bid on vehicles with the "Buy It Now" option if you'd like, you can also purchase them immediately at a pre-set price. View all "Buy It Now" cars for sale available right now.

  • Pre-Bid

    Preliminary bidding, also known as a pre-bid, is a convenient type of bidding option which allows you to place an incremental value bid up to 1 hour before the live auto auction starts. Your pre-bid will be presented during the live auction and could be the winning bid if no other bidder submits a higher bid either during the live auction or during the pre-bidding phase.

  • Bid Live

    Live bidding is a type of internet bidding that allows you to place virtual bids on cars in real time. Enjoy the excitement of fast-paced online live auto auctions from anywhere, anytime. Participating in live car sales is easy; you compete against other bidders by placing incremental bids to become the high bidder and win the sale of the vehicle. Find cars & bids live today!
