Q: CAN THE GENERAL PUBLIC PURCHASE VEHICLES AT AUCTION?

A: Yes! CCAA is principally a dealer only auction, however certain lanes are open to all buyers. The Public is welcome to view available vehicles at 1:00 PM on Wednesday and during business hours on Thursday and Friday. 

Q: HOW AND WHEN DO I REGISTER TO BUY AND IS THERE A FEE?

A: A $400 cash deposit, along with a $30 annual public membership fee, is required to receive a bidder number and comes with one guest pass. Additional guest passes are available for $10 each.

Q: IF I DO NOT BUY A CAR, DO I GET BACK MY DEPOSIT?

A: Yes, if you do not purchase a vehicle your $400 is returned to you any time before, during or after the auction. If you wait to pick up your deposit it becomes a check made payable to the registered customer after Thursday. If you do purchase a car, your $400 deposit is applied toward the purchase of the vehicle.

Q: DO I HAVE TO PAY FOR THE CAR RIGHT AWAY?

A: No. Your $400 deposit holds the vehicle until the following day at 5pm when the remaining balance is due.

Q: WHAT KIND OF PAYMENT IS ACCEPTED?

A: Cash, cashier’s check, money orders and all major credit cards are all accepted forms of payment. The $400 deposit must be in cash. Additional fees apply to credit/debit card purchases.

Q: CAN I BRING MY CHILDREN?

A: Children under the age of 16 are not allowed due to insurance regulations.

Q: CAN I BRING A MECHANIC?

A: Yes. Anyone who can help you in the purchase of your vehicle is strongly recommended.

Q: WHEN WILL I GET THE TITLE TO MY CAR?

A: The seller has 31 days to produce a free and clear title to the auction title department. Once the title is approved, it will be sent to the clerk’s office/bmv to be transferred. Once the necessary information is received from the clerk/bmv, CCAA will mail proper paperwork to the buyer to take to his/her clerk/BMV to complete the transfer and get a plate for the vehicle. The title will be mailed directly to the buyer from the state or from CCAA. It is recommended that the purchaser NOT spend any money on the vehicle until that is received.
