Go to «My Purchases» Here the vehicle will be listed with one of the following statuses:
FAVOURITE CARS – the vehicles you have bookmarked
MY BIDS – the vehicles you have bid on
EXPECTED CONFIRMATION – the vehicles that require the supplier's confirmation before they can be sold at your proposed price. If the supplier accepts your bid within three working days, the vehicle’s status changes to ORDER PROCESSING; otherwise, the vehicle’s status changes to LOST.
ORDER PROCESSING – when the current status of the vehicle is ORDER PROCESSING, you will need to complete the appropriate form within 24 hours to place your order. An invoice will then be generated.
PAYMENT – these are the vehicles for which you need to make payment within 2 working days of placing your order. Once payment has been received and the amount is credited to the CarOutlet account, the status of the vehicle changes to WAITING FOR DELIVERY.
PREPARING WAITING FOR DELIVERY – vehicles with pending paperwork that are awaiting delivery.
YOU MAY PICK UP – vehicles ready to be handed over the buyer that must be picked up within 14 days, unless otherwise indicated.
UPLOAD DOCUMENTS – the vehicles have been handed over to the buyer. The next step is to upload the delivery documents or documents confirming the export.
LOST – the vehicle auctions in which you were the highest bidder but for which the supplier refused the bid.
For auctions with a fixed price and that allow bidding, you can make a bid that is lower than the fixed price. The supplier decides whether to accept or refuse the bid.
Auctions listed with the Hot Bid tag allow for the auction to be extended after the originally stated auction period has ended. The amount of extra time depends on the intensity of bidding. A Hot Bid period can end at any moment, after which no more bids are accepted.
If the seller accepts your bid, you are the vehicle’s purchaser. If the supplier refuses the bid, the purchase is cancelled.
You need to place your purchase order by filling out the appropriate form within 24 hours, pay for the vehicle within 2 working days and then wait for the status of the vehicle to change to READY FOR DELIVERY.
After the auction has ended, all participants will be notified of the final decision. Under My purchases in the winner’s account, the vehicle’s status changes to EXPECTED CONFIRMATION.
You can see the bids made by other participants in open auctions. If an auction is closed, participants can only see their own bids.
No, bids cannot be cancelled.
Once the vehicle has been delivered and all the necessary paperwork is complete, the vehicle’s status changes to READY FOR DELIVERY. The vehicle must be picked up between 7 and 28 days after payment depending on its location and the time needed by the supplier to prepare the documents.
If the vehicle registration certificate is not handed over to you along with the vehicle, it will be sent to you in the mail once documents confirming that the vehicle has been delivered to the final destination have been received.
In this case, you will need to file a claim. Our professional staff will review your claim and notify you regarding their decision.
No, users are not entitled to cancel bids for vehicles after an auction has ended. Once a bid is made, the user enters into a legally binding agreement.
If a user refuses to pay for the vehicle won in an auction, the user will be charged a penalty and their account will be deactivated. A user’s right to participate in future auctions is thereby revoked. Reactivating an account is solely at the discretion of CarOutlet and will only be considered once the user has paid all relevant penalties.
A regional levy is a compulsory levy payable by the buyer to the seller. The levy amount depends on the country in which the vehicle is offered for sale and on the buyer's country of residence.
