To auction salvage cars, first transport them safely to the desired place using a vehicle hauler, instead of driving the cars. Use a tractor trailer, particularly when transporting several vehicles. Hire mechanics with an ASE certification, given by the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence, as they can give you an assurance of the quality of repairs made.

Ensure that the repairs made fulfill the federal regulations concerning emissions and safety. Also, replace any damaged parts. If desired, make necessary repairs to the damaged parts to sell them at a good price.

Submit the ownership documents to the business insurance company if selling cars is your business. If the salvage regulations in your area require it, register with the Department of Motor Vehicles of your state.

Use websites such as eBay Motors to list the cars under the salvage title. When listing, provide accurate information regarding the vehicles, including the repairs and replacements made and vehicle history. Obtain the history report from websites such as CarFax.

Use secure online payment systems to accept payments. Preferably, use those systems that can process payments made through credit cards.
