How does bidding work?
We partner with CUAuctions for our vehicle auctions. Our auctions use progressive bidding and make the highest bid public knowledge. You can increase your bid in response to other bidders and use proxy bidding. We'll also let you know via email when you've been outbid so that you can increase your bid amount.
How is this different than eBay or Yahoo Auctions?
P1FCU owns the vehicles on our Used Vehicle Auctions page. You can trust us to make full disclosures about the vehicle you are buying. You will also have the confidence knowing we will work with you to make the purchase process smooth.
Why do I have to register to bid?
Registering to bid is absolutely free with no obligation. Should you win the bidding, we will need some information from you to finalize the vehicle purchase. Once you're registered, it takes less than five minutes to activate your information in our database. You'll receive a confirmation email with a link for you to follow to open your account. You'll be ready to bid on any vehicle on our auctions page with an active account.
When do I arrange for payment after placing the winning bid?
We require a deposit of $500 within two business days of auction close and the remaining balance to be paid within five days of auction close. All payments must be guaranteed funds. We reserve the right to cancel auctions at any time, for any reason, without prior notice, even if bids have been placed. If you have questions, please contact us at 208-746-8900 ext. 4333.
