1. SEARCH VEHICLES
Use the Vehicle Finder to search by featured vehicles, vehicle types, popular makes and more. You can even search by VIN and Lot Number.
Once you reach the search results, you can narrow your search by using the Filter Options. You can also sort your current results by clicking any of the search results’ table headers (Year, Make, Model, Location, Sale Date, and more). If a search is one that you’ll want to pull up again in the future, remember to save it, which will save you time later.
From the search results, you can add vehicles to your Watchlist, compare vehicles, export the search results and customize your search results view.
2. REVIEW LOT DETAILS
From the search results, select any vehicle to view its lot details page. Lot details pages provide detailed information about each vehicle. Here you’ll find:
- 15+ vehicle images
- Videos, when available
- Seller announcements
- Condition reports
- Run lights
- Lot descriptions
- Current bid
- Estimated retail value
- And much more
3. PRE-BID BEFORE AUCTIONS
From the search results and lot details page, you can pre-bid prior to the live online auction.
Set your maximum pre-bid, and if it’s the highest bid once the pre-bid period ends, it will be represented during the auction. The bids will automatically be placed for you, incrementally and only up to your maximum bid, so you don’t have to worry about overbidding and overpaying.
4. JOIN AUCTIONS & BID LIVE
View the Auctions Calendar so you can plan for upcoming auctions. DRIVE auctions are completely online, so join via the website or the DRIVE Mobile App. Visiting a DRIVE location in person prior to or during an auction is not necessary unless you want to inspect vehicles in person.
To bid live during auctions, make sure you have a DRIVE Membership (Premier Level) and are logged in.
Attending live online auctions is the only way to see what the final bid amounts were. DRIVE does not release final bids or sale prices after the sale.
