AUCTIONS: COMING SOON
There's a ton of value in signing up for NicaNorth's online auctions. First, you'll save money. Second, it's fun. Third, we guarantee your purchase is exactly as advertised. That third point is probably the most important. At an auction's end, the winning bidder is required to put down a $250.00 deposit to hold the vehicle in his or her name. At that point, the bidder can come physically inspect and drive the vehicle to assure there are no deficiencies. If the bidder is unhappy with the purchase prior to leaving our lot, we will refund the $250.00 in-full. To be qualified to bid, you must sign up for our auctions. Auctions are open for public viewing, but only members can participate.
Currently, we hold our online auctions once a week, starting at 7:00pm EST, Wednesday evening through 7:00pm EST, Thursday evening totaling 24 hours. These are 1-day auctions. If a vehicle does not sell, the highest bidder will be able to make an offer. Most vehicles will have undisclosed reserves, however, we do share full details of the current market value specific to each vehicle and its condition as well as a full history report via Carfax with VIN available for further research.
Due to the amount being saved when buying a vehicle through our auctions, taxes are not included. 5.5% sales tax is added to any vehicle purchased by a resident from the State of Maine. If a buyer is from another state, no taxes are added to the final price, however, a sales tax disclosure form must be signed to exempt an individual from out-of-state to be eligible for a tax-free transaction. The disclosure simply states that the vehicle will not be registered/insured in the State of Maine. That's it. There are no other fees charged to an individual when buying through our auctions.
We'd love to help you sell your vehicle, too. There are no fees to list and a minimal successful auction fee if your vehicle does sell. Please contact us to submit something you'd like to get rid of as well as if you'd like to see our fee schedule for a successful auction sale. We will also provide you with auction requirements that highlight the information we need from you to accurately list your vehicle. If your vehicle doesn't sell, it won't cost you a penny.
