How to buy



You will be notified by email when you win an auction. This email will detail all the steps required to finish the sale, and will include the invoice, along with instructions on making payment by wire transfer. It is highly recommended that you make payment as promptly as possible to avoid any additional fees.



Once payment is made, ownership documents will be sent from Copart/IAAI to CarsFromWest. CarsFromWest will also send you a notification to E-Sign your Purchase Agreement Documents. Please allow 2-5 weeks for your ownership documentation to be processed.
