Can I visit a Salvage World Auctions location to preview vehicles?

Yes, and in fact, we encourage you to visit. Although Salvage World Auctions provides 10 high-quality images and accurate descriptions for each vehicle, any information provided is for convenience only. Why not go that extra step for additional peace of mind and visit a Salvage World Auctions location to see the vehicle in person? Many of our locations host monthly cookouts, so this would be a great time to stop by, look at vehicles, meet the general manager and network with other auto enthusiasts.

Licensed Members may preview vehicles up for auction in the next sale at no cost Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Public Members should contact their location to determine preview days and hours. Nonmembers are welcome at the locations, too, but must pay a $20 visitor fee for each facility visit. Register for free, and the fee is waived! All guests must be at least 16 years of age to enter Salvage World Auctions locations.

If you’re unable to visit us in person, remember that we provide a list of inspection services for you to use. These inspectors are not Salvage World Auctions employees and would be working as third-party professionals on your behalf to help you make informed buying decisions.

Do I need a business license to bid and buy? If so, where can I get it?

Not all Salvage World Auctions inventory requires business licenses.  You'll greatly benefit, however, from having these items on file with Salvage World Auctions: 

  • Operational business licenses (dealer, dismantler, repairable and/or business licenses)
  • Sales tax licenses
  • Sales tax exemption forms

Want to know what we have on file for you? Go to Account Information to view your current business licenses.

Business licenses are typically issued through state departments of transportation, motor vehicles, finance or taxation. Every state has its own business licensing requirements, which you can see on the State Licensing Overview. For more detailed, state-specific licensing guidelines, including links to applications and forms, choose your state from the Licensing Map.

With enough Buying Power, Salvage World Auctions Members without a business license can bid on and purchase No License Required vehicles. However, they still have to pay sales tax where applicable. Sales tax regulation varies among states, and rates vary among locations.

How do I use a Broker?

Brokers are professional buyers who assist businesses and individuals who may not have the business licenses to buy the vehicles they want. Brokers often provide bidding and buying advice, repair services, transportation, export shipping and more. Some Brokers even have physical storefronts and are set up with kiosks allowing you to bid and buy right from their office.

The easiest way to use a Broker is to first find the vehicles that you’re interested in buying. Once you attempt to bid on these lots, you will be directed to the list of Brokers who can help you. Not all Brokers can facilitate the purchase of every vehicle. This is why it’s important that you select your desired vehicles before attempting to contact a Broker.

Remember that Brokers are independent of Salvage World Auctions. When you use a Broker, you are buying vehicles through the Broker and not Salvage World Auctions. Members who elect to work with a Broker to bid on vehicles are advised to carefully read and understand the Broker’s terms and conditions, including payment terms and conditions. You should also review the Broker’s qualifications thoroughly to ensure that the Broker meets your vehicle purchasing needs.
