See the FAQ's below for more answers for first-time buyers on K-BID!

  • 1. Can anyone bid? - Yes - auctions on are open to the general public. You will have to register as a buyer and verify your identity in order to bid.

  • 2. Are there additional fees? - Yes - a 13% buyers premium is charged on items that sell up to $5,000, that drops to 10% on items that sell over $5,000 and is capped at $1,000 per item.

  • 3. What is a reserve? - A reserve is a minimum price that must be exceeded before an item will sell. Most vehicles sold on K-BID do not have a reserve and will be sold to the highest bidder. If an item does have a reserve, you will see the wording "Reserve Not Met." Once the bid price has exceeded the reserve, the wording will change to "Reserve Reached." Buyers can increase their bid against the reserve price until it has been exceeded. In most cases, the reserve amount is not disclosed to buyers.

  • 4. Can I inspect or take a test drive? - Each auction has an inspection period where interested buyers can inspect the vehicles they are interested in. You can find these dates and times in the details section on the bottom of each auction page. Test drives are allowed on most auctions but please contact the affiliate auction company for more information.

  • 5. What if there is an issue with the vehicle? - Auction items on K-BID are sold "As-Is, Where-Is," meaning you are buying the item(s) without a warranty or guarantees. Independent affiliates work hard to accurately describe and take videos/pictures to give you a clear picture of the vehicle. However, they are not mechanics and do NOT offer a full diagnosis or any guarantees. This is why we strongly encourage buyers to take advantage of the inspection period.

  • 6. Can I retract a bid or return a vehicle? - We do not remove bids. Bids placed on K-BID .com are binding contracts to purchase. Please verify that you have the ability to follow through with your purchases prior to bidding.

  • 7. How do I pay? - Winning bidders will pay at the auction removal location during the removal period. During this time, buyers will fill out the appropriate paperwork to get the item transferred into their name. Most affiliates accept cash, check or credit card - please verify the terms of the auction or call the affiliate with questions.

  • 8. Can I finance a purchase? - Financing is not available at this time. Buyers may be able to work with a 3rd party lender if they can obtain funding within the auction timeframe. It's strongly advised to talk to a lending institution prior to bidding if you are considering financing.

  • 9. Can I sell my vehicle? -
  • Yes, many affiliates are able to take your vehicle on consignment and sell it for you. If you have a high volume of vehicles or are a dealer, please contact us to discuss your options.
