Is your auction open to the public?

Yes! All are welcome at Auto Auctions Detroit.

How do I sell a vehicle at your auction?

You will need to make sure you have all necessary paper work (including photo identification and original title in your name). Then, you will register with Auto Auctions Detroit. A small fee is necessary to register, and an additional fee will be due after the sale of vehicle. The additional fee depends on the type of vehicle sold.

Can I test drive a vehicle before I bid?

We do not allow vehicles to be test driven. However, you will be able to visually inspect the vehicles before the auction. During the auction, you will be able to see and hear how the vehicle performs while the engine is running.

Do you only auction cars?

We auction all vehicles. In the past, we have auctioned cars, vans, trucks, limousines, school buses, snow mobiles, jet skis, RVs, and more!

Do I have to pay the full amount at the time I win the vehicle?

No, but a deposit is required. The rest of the balance will be due when you pick up the vehicle. You must pick up the vehicle within two business days after you place the winning bid.
