- SALE POLICIES
- Bid Rejection. AUCTIONS reserve the right to reject or void bids for any reason, in Copart's sole and absolute discretion. Should a dispute arise regarding a bid, AUCTIONS is the exclusive deciding authority with sole and absolute discretion in resolving disputes. Members agree to indemnify, defend, and hold AUCTIONS harmless from any and all liability arising out of decisions made in resolving disputes.
- Sale Cancellation. AUCTIONS may, in its sole and absolute discretion and with or without notice, postpone or cancel a sale or withdraw a vehicle from a sale. AUCTIONS will have no liability or obligation to Members as a result of any vehicle withdrawal or sale cancellation or postponement. Further, AUCTIONS reserves the right to cancel or reverse a sale transaction in the event of fraud, material misrepresentation, or patent defect in the Vehicle Description or bidding information, as determined by AUCTIONS in its sole discretion. In the event a sale is cancelled after the Member has remitted payment, AUCTIONS will credit the amount of the payment to the Member's account (or to the Member's credit or debit card used to remit payment, if applicable).
- Tie Bid Policy. Virtual Bids (and, where available, Live Auction Bids) prevail over Preliminary Bids of equal amount.
- BID4U. Copart uses BID4U to make the bidding process easier and more efficient. Simply enter a Preliminary Bid representing the maximum price you are willing to pay for the vehicle and BID4U will bid on your behalf up to your maximum bid during both the Preliminary Bidding Period and the Virtual Sale. BID4U will only bid one increment over the current bid to maintain your position as the highest bidder. This allows you the possibility of purchasing a vehicle below your maximum bid. If a bidder with a higher maximum bid outbids you during Preliminary Bidding, you will be notified via email. BID4U is not available for VIX vehicles (see Section II.F. below).
- Minimum Bids, Bid to Be Approved, and Counter Bidding..
- If (a) the seller designates a vehicle as "Bid To Be Approved" or "On Approval" or (b) the seller designates a Minimum Bid for a vehicle and the high bid in the auction is less than the Minimum Bid amount, then the vehicle will not be released to the Member with the high bid unless and until the seller has notified AUCTIONS of its acceptance of the bid. The seller has until 6 p.m. (Pacific Time) on the next business day following the day of the auction to notify AUCTIONS of such acceptance.
- Counter Bidding allows sellers who have designated a vehicle as Minimum Bid or Bid To Be Approved to directly counter bid the high bidder after the auction ends. The Member acknowledges and agrees that, regardless of any counter bids made by the seller of a vehicle, the Member's high bid on a Minimum Bid or Bid To Be Approved vehicle is an offer that shall remain open to acceptance by the seller until 6 p.m. (Pacific Time) on the next business day after the day of the auction.
- VIX (Virtual Internet Exchange) and Sealed Bid Repo Vehicles.
- VIX vehicles and Sealed Bid Repo vehicles are still in the seller's possession at the time of bidding and may only be inspected using the images available on Copart's websites. The location of the Copart facility where the vehicle and title may be picked up by the high bidder will appear in the online vehicle listing. VIX and Sealed Bid Repo vehicles are sold "on approval" using a sealed bid auction format. BID4U is not available for these vehicles. In the event of a tie between two or more bidders, the first bid received will be deemed the high bidder. Once submitted, bids can be increased, but cannot be lowered or retracted.
- Copart will notify Members whether a bid has been accepted by the seller within three business days after the listed bidding period ends. Members may also obtain this information by clicking on the "Check Bids" link, the "VIX Action Pending" icon, or the Sealed Bid Repo Action Pending icon within the "Member Account" section of Copart's websites.
- If a Member's bid has been accepted, the Member is obligated to purchase the vehicle, but only if Copart notifies the Member no later than 45 days after bid acceptance that the vehicle and title are available for pick up. Following notification, the Member will have the standard number of days allowed by the Copart facility where the vehicle is located to pick up the vehicle before late-payment and storage fees apply.
- If Copart notifies the Member more than 45 days after bid acceptance that the vehicle and title are available for delivery, the Member may at its option either (i) cancel the sale, or (ii) pay for and take delivery of the vehicle.
- If prior to the vehicle being removed from Copart premises, it is determined that items have been removed or replaced on the vehicle, that additional damage has occurred since the time the Member submitted his/her bid, and/or there is a title type discrepancy, the Member will have the option to purchase the vehicle at the original price or cancel the sale. Odometer readings that differ from the listed mileage by less than 2,000 miles do not qualify for transaction cancellation.
- Vehicle and Title Release. AUCTIONS reserves the right not to release any vehicle or vehicle title for any reason.
- Bids Entered. Once a bid has been submitted, it cannot be retracted, deleted, or cancelled.
- Risk of Loss. Each Member takes full responsibility and assumes all risk of loss for all vehicles purchased from the time AUCTIONS accepts the Member's bid. From and after acceptance of the Member's bid (for vehicles located at a AUCTION facility), the Member acknowledges that AUCTIONS is acting as bailee of the Member's vehicle until such time as the vehicle is removed from AUCTION's premises by the Member or the Member's agent or representative. The Member agrees that under the terms of the bailment, (1) AUCTIONS shall not be responsible for damage to or loss of the vehicle or parts thereof due to operational procedures in place at all AUCTIONS facilities, from acts of theft or vandalism, or acts of God; (2) AUCTIONS shall only be responsible for damage to or loss of the vehicle or parts thereof caused by the direct willful or grossly negligent act or omission of Copart; and (3) Copart shall not be responsible for any claim of damage made after the vehicle has left AUCTION's premises, regardless of whether the Member or any agent, employee or other representative on the Member's behalf picks up the vehicle.
Once a vehicle is removed from AUCTIONS's premises it is accepted AS-IS, and under no circumstances will AUCTIONS OR SP AUTO be liable for subsequent claims of damage or loss of any kind or nature whatsoever
WHEN PURCHASING CARS FROM SP AUTO YOU ARE AGREEING TO THE SELLING AUCTION TERMS AND CONDITIONS AS WELL.
- VEHICLE EXPORTS
All vehicle purchased from Canada and United States (US) are subject to Canadian and US Export Law. It is the responsibility of the buyer to comply with Canada and U.S customs import/export laws and procedures applicable to foreign title vehicles. Customs inspection,
import fees and proof of emissions compliance may be required. Please contact your local government for more details.
- Registration Laws Disclaimer
SP AUTO does not guarantee that any vehicle sold can be legally registered in any province, state or country, and Buyer accepts all risks associated with variations in vehicle title and registration laws between states, provinces, and countries that may negatively impact the marketability of vehicles purchased through SP AUTO.
You can pick up the vehicles from the AUCTION and arrange the shipping by your self or you may place with us either an overseas or domestic shipping order pursuant to which we will act as your shipping agent and will select and engage a shipping carrier on your behalf and otherwise arrange for transportation, storage, and delivery of the vehicle. As a shipping agent we disclaim all liability for any and all loss, damage, expense or delay to the vehicle, including in the event that a vehicle to be shipped overseas is seized by the CANADA or U.S. Customs and Border Protection (“CBP”). You acknowledge that the circumstances under which CBP has the authority to seize a shipping container, and the contents therein, include, but are not limited to, the following: where documents pertaining to the shipment are missing; where documents pertaining to the shipment contain incorrect information; and pursuant to a spontaneous inspection of the shipment container.
- Shipping Payment
All shipping costs and other related fees must be pre-paid by the member who requests the shipment. Such fees may include but are not limited to applicable taxes, loading fees, storage costs, export documentation, and key service. In the event that the amount of any such fee is not known until after the shipment has been made, you acknowledge that you will be responsible for reimbursing us for any and all taxes, costs, and expenses we incur in making the shipment. You agree and acknowledge that while we use our best efforts to pick up from AUCTIONS facilities any vehicle for which shipping has been requested within the number of days allowed by the AUCTIONS facility where the vehicle is located so as to avoid storage fees, we are not always able to do so. Thus, you agree and acknowledge that in the event we are unable to pick up your vehicle within the pickup period, you may also incur a non-refundable daily storage fee at the applicable rate charged by the AUCTION facility.
You agree and acknowledge that shipping costs expressed on our Website are for general informational purposes only and are not binding shipping estimates or quotes. To obtain a shipping quote, please contact us directly.
- Shipping Disclaimer
Vehicles shall be shipped FOB. Therefore, you acknowledge and agree that while we will use all reasonable measures to deliver the vehicle to you in the same condition in which it was picked up from the AUCTION facility and by the estimated shipping date notwithstanding the foregoing, we shall not be held liable for any and all liability with respect to key loss, vehicle damage, vehicle or part theft, or shipment delays once the vehicle has been placed with the carrier.
When the vehicle is won and the sale is confirmed by the auction, we will send a notification email with the invoice attached, to the email address we have on file.
For $300 CAD fee we can take away your headache with transportation arrangement and Export/Import Service. You also will be paying the shipping rates we receive from out partners.
If you don’t want to pay the fee to us, you can arrange shipping and towing by yourself.
- Deposit Refunds
If you have no active bids, purchased no vehicles, and have no outstanding fees, the security deposit is 100% refundable. If a “bid” has been placed or you have purchased a vehicle, the security deposit is held until the auction is over or the vehicle is paid for and picked up. The refund will be issued in the original form of payment. Refusing to pay for the vehicle that is won at auction results in the forfeiture of the security deposit.
Relisting Fees: SP Auto Export Inc. collects a security deposit in advanced to help cover fees that occur when a buyer wins an auction but refuses to pay for the vehicle.
- Purchase Price
The purchase price of the vehicle will be the auction invoice amount with fees and taxes plus our buying fee. SP Auto invoice amount will include the auction invoice amount plus our fees.
