How to book in a vehicle for Auction
You are more than welcome to bring your vehicle in for Auction anytime Monday-Thursday from 9:00am-5:00pm and Friday from 9:00am-6:00pm. We ask that you have your vehicle in by Friday at 6:00pm to ensure a spot in the current Saturday's sale. PBR Auctions does not accept vehicles on Saturday mornings and if you cannot make it by Friday at 6:00pm, please call us in advance to make arrangements with our auto staff. We will try our best to accommodate you, but there is no guarantee we will be able to book your vehicle in beyond the 6:00pm deadline. PBR Auctions requires that all consignors declare malfunction on the powertrain of vehicles related to engine, transmission and differential prior to the sale. Vehicles not properly declared are subject to arbitration. Arbitration policy does not cover wearable items (tires, brakes, etc.). All vehicles are left at the owner's risk*.
*The auction does not provide insurance coverage on any vehicle; seller-owner will assume all risk and liability of any vehicle on auction premises pending sale. The title shall remain in seller-owner name, who has instructed the auction to sell the vehicle. The seller-owner will hold all responsibility towards the vehicle until paid in full. The seller-owner agrees that the title is free and clear and the vehicle has no other deficiencies other than those declared by the seller-owner on the selling contract. The auction makes no guarantees on make, year, model, mileage and equipment or verification on statements made by seller-owner.
Fees for selling a vehicle
There are two ways in which you can sell your vehicle through our Auction:
1) Reserved Bid: You are allowed to place a reserve bid on your vehicle. It must be a minimum of $2000.00. If you place a reserve bid on your vehicle, we charge a 12% commission fee on the final sale of your vehicle (i.e. If we sell your vehicle for $3000.00, we would charge a $360.00 commission fee)
2) Unreserved Bid: You are not allowed to place a minimum bid if you are selling your vehicle unreserved. Vehicles that sell unreserved sell to the highest bidder in the Auction ring. There is no guarantee on the amount we will sell your vehicle for. If you place your vehicle unreserved, we charge a 10% commission fee on the final sale of your vehicle (i.e. If we sell your vehicle for $1000.00, we would charge a $100.00 commission fee)
There are two other fees associated with selling a vehicle through our Auction:
1) Entry fee: This is a $50.00 + tax ($52.50) fee which is a standard auction fee for cost of selling a vehicle through us.
2) Run through fee: $15.00 + tax ($16.00) fee which is associated with selling your vehicle online to those who are unable to attend our auction in person. This service was not previously available to sellers.
These fees are non-negotiable.
Information for buying a vehicle
If you are interested in purchasing a vehicle, please come and visit us anytime from Monday-Thursday 9:00am-5:00pm and Friday from 9:00am-9:00pm. You can take a vehicle for a test drive within our compound but you must leave your driver's license with the auto staff. PBR Auctions asks that you thoroughly check through the vehicle you are interested in, engaging in a complete walk around to check the overall condition. (Vehicle startups are not allowed on the day of the sale by customers.) If you are the winning bidder in our Auction you are responsible for payment of that vehicle.
Guidelines for buying a vehicle through our Auction
PBR Auctions is required to maintain confidentiality on consignors and buyers. PBR will make every effort to acquiesce information you may require. Under NO circumstances does PBR hand out consignor or buyer information to third party sources.
"Phone Bid" Sales
A "phone bid" is the highest bid on a vehicle that is recorded and held for the approval of an owner who is not in attendance at the time of the sale.
If your bid is the highest bid on a given vehicle and the owner is not present, one of our staff will phone the owner and try to get approval of your bid. If the bid is approved by phone, the vehicle is considered sold to you as if sold on the auction block.
If the owner cannot be reached immediately, you may bid on another vehicle and if successful on the second vehicle, the "phone bid" will be cancelled at your request. If you have two phone bids in place, and you fail to tell us to cancel one, you may be responsible for payment of both vehicles.
You can bid on vehicles online you if are unable to attend our auction. Sign up is free of charge. You will be required to fill out our registration form (as pictured below). PBR asks for your credit card information so that we can confirm your identity and upon purchase of a vehicle, charge a non-refundable deposit of a maximum of $300.00 to secure the sale. All of your information is 100% secure and under no circumstances does PBR give out your personal information.
Please call Curtis at 306-931-7666 for any other information regarding online bidding, or if you are having a problem registering.
