How It Works


Timed Auctions gives you the ability to bid on online car auctions over a defined period of time. You can enter your maximum bid online and see if the reserve has been met. When the countdown ends, you’ll know immediately if you are the winner!

  • Fresh inventory, no reruns.
  • Bid with precision and know exactly when the online car auctions end.
  • Set your maximum dollar amount and let the auction system incrementally bid for you.
  • Notifications arrive quickly if you’re outbid so you can jump right back into the action.
  • Watch the final-hour countdown clock in real-time because every second counts!
  • When the reserve is met and the countdown ends, the highest bidder immediately wins the auto auction.
  • Online buyers have a front row seat to all of the action.
  • When the auction’s reserve is not met and the countdown ends, the highest bidder gets a Buy Now Offer.
  • If a Buy Now Offer is declined, it is opened to the remaining bidders – first come first serve. If no one accepts, it moves to our regular ‘buy now.’
