Anounce about SUV
This is a friendly reminder that we will be loading 3 SUV’s per container to Lithuania. 95% of all cars are SUV’s, all warehouses are practically full and we cannot keep these large vehicles for unknown period of time, so please know that we will be loading whatever we can and expect 3 SUV loadings from New York, Savannah and Houston.
News about MSC Line
Unfortunately, with MSC announcing huge GRI from May 8th, we want to also let you know that in order to keep loading all cars and huge shortage of bookings from all other lines, we still must use MSC. Of course, our priority will always be to load as many containers as possible with the cheapest shipping lines and use MSC only as strictly necessary. To be fair to every client, if we have to use MSC for some of your cars, we will make sure that some will be loaded with other - cheaper, carriers as well. This loading module would apply to Savannah, Houston and New York cars only.
Please know that we are constantly working on improving our services and we sincerely appreciate your understanding.
Updates regarding vehicles purchased with title status "PENDING" (with missing title).
The following warehouses will count storage starting from the first day of delivery at $7 per day until the title is received:
- New York
These warehouses still do not accept vehicles with a missing title:
- Los Angeles
Due to new regulations set forth by shipping lines and an increase of electric/hybrid vehicles exports powered by Lithium Batteries will now require to be shipped as a dangerous good. For the past year, we’ve been working on avoiding these costs to our clients, however as more lines are developing new guidelines, we are forced to bring down these costs.
Starting September 1st, all hybrid and electric vehicles will be moved as a dangerous good and an additional surcharge of $100 per consolidated shipment will be applied to the vehicle no matter what destination.
For full container customers, there will be a surcharge of $350 added to the ocean freight, regardless if only 1 car is either a hybrid or electric car.

Yes it can happen, but it is rare. Auction employees are subject to human error and they may miss some hidden defects. Also, vehicle auctions sell at high volumes, so it is more likely that an error in the CR(AutoGrade) would occur, as compared to traditional retail channels.
To protect your purchase from such errors, it is highly recommended that you thoroughly review your purchase using our AUTOCHECK service. In addition, please consider a Pre Sale Inspection, using one of our partners (AIM) and/or a Post Sale inspection PSI provided by the auction company. These services are provided at a low cost and protect you from damages missed in the initial inspection process.
Go to your personal account in the "BIDS" section and select the "CANCEL" option.
A bid can only be canceled before the bid is submitted to the auction. Pay attention to the timer before the start of the Live Auction or the end of the Timed Auction.
All bids must be placed at least 1 hour before the start of the line, otherwise the processing of bids is not guaranteed.
To personally take part in a Live Auction, you need to open a lot and connect to the auction at the appointed time.
This feature is currently available through Copart Auction.
If you are allowed to buy several cars at the same time, then you can make several bids on each purchased car.
For example, you want to buy two cars. Make 5 bids on the first car and play until some bid wins. And place 3 bids on the second car and play until one of the 3 bids wins the car.
To do this, you need to select for which purchased car this bid applies at the "BID CONFIRMATION" (pic below). If you are bidding on the first car, then select "Buying the car #1" and if this bid to the second purchased car, then select "Buying the car #2".
To do this, you need to choose which car will be staked on in "BID CONFIRMATION" (see the figure below). If you are bidding on the first car, select "Buying the car #1", and if this bid is on the second car to buy, select "Buying the car #2".
P.S. You can make no more than 10 bids per day for each car you buy.
When placing bids at the auction all vehicles are being purchased by CAROMOTO. After your bid has won, your vehicle is transferred to you according to the charges indicated on the invoice and documented in the Bill of Sale, where sale price includes vehicle price at auction, auction fee, CAROMOTO fee, vehicle and title shipping, and any additional fees specific to the transaction. You can make payment in US dollars to the CAROMOTO account via the website using a bank wire transfer, ACH payment, Zelle or by sending a Cashier's Check.
Payment can be made for purchased vehicles to your account via bank wire transfer, ACH transfer or cashier's check. Full payment must be made to your account for the vehicle in 48 hours (two business days) from purchase at the auction. If we do not receive payment within 72 hours (three business days), your account will be charged a $25 per day late fee until full payment is received.
