Compared to in-person auctions, online auctions provide buyers and sellers a much more affordable way to do business by offering significantly lower fees!  Bidder registration is FREE, and only a 5% buyer's fee is due IF you win an auction!  Compare that what you would pay at Mecum or Barrett-Jackson. We allow our sellers to upload UNLIMITED photos, videos, and descriptions to their listings so that even though you aren't seeing the car in person, you get a clear understanding of its condition. Never again ask yourself “how do online car auctions work?” with our seamless and user-friendly platform.

Experience classic car auctions like never before! Our classic car auctions end and begin every Monday-Friday. Any unclaimed vehicles still looking to be sold by their current owners move to our Bid Continues section after the live auction process ends, giving them a better chance of being sold at auction for an even better price for the winning bidder. You’ll be hard pressed to find other vintage car auctions offering such great vehicles at amazing prices. With our online platform, you'll have access to amazing classic cars at unbeatable prices - a rare find in vintage car auctions.

Buying a Car @ ACC Auctions

When you bid on a car, you’re agreeing to buy it if you end up as the highest bidder – so you’ll want to do your due diligence before placing any bids. That means carefully reviewing the photos, videos, and description(s), asking the seller questions, or even scheduling a trip to see the car in person. We encourage all potential buyers to make sure they know exactly what they’re getting before bidding.

Winning bidders pay a buyer’s fee that is 5% of their winning bid amount. This buyer’s fee helps prove you are a legitimate buyer, giving us confidence to connect you with a seller. Final bids are binding, and typically there are no refunds if you were to change your mind after winning. However, we may issue refunds on a case-by-case basis if you can prove that a seller significantly misrepresented a vehicle. Using a service like for a guaranteed secure payment is always a good idea, especially when buying from a private seller.

When placing bids - please also keep in mind that a seller has the ability to remove the reserve at anytime without notice or accept the highest bid within 24 hours of the auction ending.
