Many vehicles on Salvage World Auctions require business licenses in order for individuals to be able to bid and buy. If you don’t have a business license, you can bid on vehicles that require licenses through a third-party Broker as an option. Salvage World Auctions provides a list of approved Brokers.
If you already have a business license, upload your license to your account. International Buyers will have to provide dealer or dismantler license(s) from their country or a document that confirms that their main business is buying and selling vehicles.
Third-party Brokers are professional buyers who help facilitate vehicle purchases that require you to have business licenses you may not have, so you can still bid and buy the vehicles you want, even without the appropriate documentation. However, Brokers are independent of Salvage World Auctions. When using a Broker to purchase vehicles, you are buying vehicles through the Broker and not Salvage World Auctions. Some Brokers have physical storefronts that you can visit in person.
Even businesses that already have business licenses uploaded to their account may still be referred to a Broker. Some states require dealer or dismantler license(s) to bid on vehicles.
