Monster reserves the right to amend these Terms and Conditions at any time without prior notice to You.

Only Users in good standing are permitted to bid on Vehicles. Monster’s auction platform employs a two-step bidding process:

Step 1 – Preliminary Bidding is an open bidding venue that allows a Bidder to enter bids either at a bidding station at a MONSTER facility (see “Kiosk Preliminary Bidding” below) or over the Internet (see “Internet Preliminary Bidding” below). A Bidder can see the current high bid on a Vehicle during Preliminary Bidding. Bidders enter the maximum price that they are willing to pay for a Vehicle and the BID4U feature will incrementally bid on the Vehicle on the Bidder’s behalf during Preliminary Bidding and, if it is the highest Preliminary Bid at the end of the Preliminary Bidding Period, during the Virtual Sale. The Preliminary Bidding Period ends prior to the start of the Virtual Sale. During the Preliminary Bidding Period, Users may preview the offered Vehicles either online or by a designated agent at the MONSTER facility where the Vehicle is offered and subject to access, safety and liability conditions.

Step 2 – Virtual Sale is a real-time, Internet only virtual auction. Bidders have the opportunity to bid against each other and the high Bidder from the Preliminary Bidding Period in real time. Bidders enter bids via the Internet in real time, and BID4U submits bids for the high Bidder from the Preliminary Bidding Period, up to the Bidder’s maximum bid. When bidding stops, a countdown is initiated. If a new bid is received during the countdown, the countdown resets. In addition, MONSTER may also, in its sole discretion, extend or reset any countdown.

Bidding Overview

Here are the ways for Users to bid on Vehicles offered for sale on MONSTER’s Websites:

• Kiosk Preliminary Bidding – During the Preliminary Bidding Period, Users may submit Kiosk Preliminary Bids through designated kiosk terminals located in the lobbies of MONSTER facilities. Kiosk Preliminary Bids compete against Internet Preliminary Bids during the Preliminary Bidding Period. One hour after the close of the Preliminary Bidding Period, the Virtual Sale begins. The highest Preliminary Bid (either Kiosk or Internet) at the close of the Preliminary Bidding Period competes against Virtual Bids via BID4U. A Kiosk Preliminary Bid may only be entered for Vehicles being sold at the MONSTER facility where the kiosk is located; a bid placed from one MONSTER facility on a Vehicle located at a different MONSTER facility is treated as an Internet Preliminary Bid. While many MONSTER facilities may also provide Internet access through computer terminals available in the lobby, a bid submitted by logging onto one of MONSTER’s Websites over the Internet will be treated as an Internet Preliminary Bid, not as a Kiosk Preliminary Bid, regardless of whether the User is using a computer located at a MONSTER facility. Only a bid submitted through a designated bidding kiosk will be treated as a Kiosk Preliminary Bid. Users are responsible for requesting instructions from MONSTER staff at the facility if the User has any questions regarding where or how to submit a valid Kiosk Preliminary Bid.

• Internet Preliminary Bidding – During the Preliminary Bidding Period, Users may log onto MONSTER’s Website and submit bids electronically. Internet and Kiosk Preliminary Bids compete as described above. The highest Preliminary Bid (either Kiosk or Internet) at the close of the Preliminary Bidding Period competes against Virtual Bids (see below) via “BID4U” during the Virtual Sale.

• Virtual Bidding – Users may log onto MONSTER’s Websites during a Virtual Sale to submit bids electronically, in real time over the Internet, to compete with the highest Preliminary Bid and other Virtual Bids.

• Registered Broker – Users may sign up with a Registered Broker to bid on Vehicles that they may not qualify to buy directly on MONSTER’s Websites.  When You select a Registered Broker, you will be re-directed to the Broker’s Website to register with the Broker.  If You sign up with a Registered Broker and buy a Vehicle on one of MONSTER’s Websites, You buy the Vehicle from the Broker, not from MONSTER.  Users who elect to sign up with a Registered Broker to bid on a Vehicle offered on MONSTER’s Websites are advised to carefully read and understand the Broker’s Website terms and conditions, including payment terms and conditions, conditions of sale, and fees charged.  Registered Brokers are independent of MONSTER and You should review their qualifications and services offered thoroughly to ensure that they meet Your Vehicle purchasing needs.

• Market Maker – Users may visit a Market Maker to bid on Vehicles at Copart’s Websites.  Market Makers do business from a physical location, where You can search for Vehicles available for purchase at Copart’s Websites.  If You use a Market Maker to buy a Vehicle on one of Copart’s Websites, you are buying the Vehicle from the Market Maker, not from Copart.  Users who elect to use a Market Maker to bid on a Vehicle offered at one of Copart’s Websites are advised to carefully read and understand the Market Maker’s terms and conditions, including payment terms and conditions, conditions of sale, and fees charged.  Market Makers are independent of Copart and You should review their qualifications and services offered thoroughly to ensure that they meet Your Vehicle purchasing needs.  Monster AA as a Dealer may be a Market Maker.

• Sealed Bidding – Users may log onto MONSTER’s Websites to bid on certain Vehicles offered by insurance companies and Vehicle finance companies through MONSTER’s Virtual Internet Exchange (“VIX”) and Sealed Bid Repo Sales.  Both VIX and Sealed Bid Repo Sales use a sealed bid format.  BID4U is not available under this format – bids are accepted at face value.

• Buy It Now – Certain Vehicles are offered for sale with the “Buy It Now” feature.  Buy It Now allows a USER to purchase a Vehicle immediately at a price set by the seller before the Vehicle goes to auction.  Upon clicking the Buy It Now button, the User will be directed to a confirmation page to confirm the User’s Buy It Now bid.  Once the bid is confirmed, the User will be directed to the payment screen.

• Make an Offer – Certain Vehicles are offered for sale with the “Make an Offer” feature. Make an Offer allows a User to make an offer for a Vehicle. Offers submitted by clicking the Make an Offer button cannot be revoked and are valid for 2 business days (not including the day the offer is made) regardless of auction date or results.

• Live Auction Bidding – MONSTER may offer Vehicles for sale through a live auction format. All such Vehicles are also offered for sale on MONSTER’s Websites, with the live auction and Virtual Sale running concurrently.  At the live auction MONSTER will announce Virtual Bids placed on a Vehicle and will enter Live Auction Bids placed by Users present in person at the live auction. Live Auction Bids will be visible to Users viewing the Virtual Sale on MONSTER’s Websites.  MONSTER will have the ability to extend the bidding time for a Vehicle in MONSTER’s sole discretion.

Note: Where permitted by provincial law, sellers may bid on their own Vehicles.


To start Bidding, You must fund Your account with 25% of each maximum bid per Vehicle.  For example:  if You see a car You want, and You want to bid a maximum of $2,000 CAD, You must fund Your pot with a foundation amount of $500 CAD.  Then You start bidding at $100 CAD and bid up to Your chosen limit of $2,000 CAD.

• Registered Guests must register and provide first and last name, email address, phone number and Postal/ZIP Code of residence. Registered Guests have the option to submit their residential address and copies of current government issued photo identification, licences and completed sales tax exemption certificates, if applicable, to be a BIDDER or PREMIER USER.  Registered Guests may search inventory, add Vehicles to a Watchlist and create Vehicle Alerts, but Registered Guests may not bid on or purchase Vehicles unless their USER type is upgraded to either BIDDER or PREMIER.

User accepts all risks associated with variations in Vehicle importation, title and registration laws between states, territories, provinces, and countries that may negatively impact the marketability of Vehicles purchased at MONSTER. (For example, a Vehicle legally purchased on a clean title by a User at a MONSTER facility located in Province “A” may be required to be sold on a salvage title if User transports and resells the Vehicle in Province “B”.)
  3. DMV/MVD/DOR/MOT/CRA. MONSTER is not responsible for defects, errors, or omissions (i) related to motor vehicle department or department of revenue paperwork not processed by MONSTER or (ii) made by any motor vehicle department, department of revenue or other governmental entity.

  3. You have prior breaches of these Terms and Conditions;

  5. You provide false information on your registration.

 B.

Tie Bid Policy.  Virtual Bids (and, where available, Live Auction Bids) prevail over Preliminary Bids of equal amount. D. BID4U.  MONSTER uses BID4U to make the bidding process easier and more efficient. Simply enter a Preliminary Bid representing the maximum price You are willing to pay for the Vehicle and BID4U will bid on Your behalf up to Your maximum bid during both the Preliminary Bidding Period and the Virtual Sale.  BID4U will only bid one increment over the current bid to maintain Your position as the highest Bidder. This allows You the possibility of purchasing a Vehicle below Your maximum bid.  If a Bidder with a higher maximum bid outbids You during Preliminary Bidding, You will be notified via email.  BID4U is not available for VIX Vehicles. E. Minimum Bids, Bid to Be Approved, and Counter Bidding.

  1. Vehicle will not be released to the User with the high bid unless and until the seller has notified MONSTER of its acceptance of the bid when (a) the seller designates a Vehicle as “Bid to Be Approved” or “On Approval” or (b) the seller designates a Minimum Bid for a Vehicle and the high bid in the auction is less than the Minimum Bid amount. The seller has until 8:00 p.m. (Pacific Time) on the next business day following the day of the auction to notify MONSTER of such acceptance.
  2. Counter Bidding allows sellers who have designated a Vehicle as Minimum Bid or Bid To Be Approved to directly counter bid a Bidder after the auction ends.   The User acknowledges and agrees that, regardless of any counter bids made by the seller of a Vehicle, the User’s high bid on a “minimum bid” or “bid to be approved” Vehicle is an offer that shall remain open to acceptance by the seller until 8 p.m. (Pacific Time) on the next business day after the day of the auction.
  3. For greater certainty, the Bidder acknowledges that the minimum bid established by MONSTER for the Asset, if any, must not be interpreted as an estimation of the value of the Asset nor as a warranty or a representation that the value of the Asset is equal to or greater than that amount;

F. Appraisals:  MONSTER may seek independent appraisals to assist in establishing fair minimum bids. Appraisers are retained by MONSTER and the appraisal may not reflect the actual value of the Good. Users should seek their own independent appraisals. G. Inspection of Goods:  Inspection prior to submitting an offer is the responsibility of the User and may be arranged by appointment only during regular office hours with the custodian of the Goods at the location(s) indicated on the sale listing. H. Offers to Purchase:  When making an Offer to Purchase, the User acknowledges that it has been provided with full opportunity to inspect the Goods and is fully satisfied with respect to the condition of the Goods.Bids CANNOT BE CANCELLED.  Once an Offer to Purchase is made, You may not withdraw it.  However, You may modify Your Offer to Purchase at any time before the closing date indicated on the listing.

POA: Bidder shall provide MONSTER with a Power of Attorney to execute the necessary documentation to transfer ownership of Goods into Bidder’s name to complete the Purchase transaction, and further authorizes and directs MONSTER to charge the fees to Bidder’s credit card. J.

The location of the MONSTER facility where the Vehicle and title may be picked up by the high Bidder will appear in the online Vehicle listing.  VIX and Sealed Bid Repo Vehicles are sold “on approval” using a sealed bid auction format.  BID4U is NOT AVAILABLE for these Vehicles.  In the event of a tie between two or more Bidders, the first bid received will be deemed the high Bidder. Once submitted, bids can be increased, but cannot be lowered or revoked. 

  1. MONSTER will notify Users whether a bid has been accepted by the seller within three business days after the listed bidding period ends.  Users may also obtain this information by clicking on the “Check Bids” link, the “VIX Action Pending” icon, or the Sealed Bid Repo Action Pending icon within the “User Account” section of MONSTER’s or affiliate’s Websites.
  2. If User’s bid has been accepted, the User is obligated to purchase the Vehicle if MONSTER notifies the User within 46 days after bid acceptance that the Vehicle and title are available for pick up.  Following notification, the User will have the number of days allowed by the MONSTER facility where the Vehicle is located to pick up the Vehicle before late-payment and storage fees apply.
  3. If MONSTER notifies the User more than 46 days after bid acceptance that the Vehicle and title are available for delivery, the User may at its option either (i) cancel the sale, or (ii) pay for and take delivery of the Vehicle.
  4. If prior to the Vehicle being removed from MONSTER premises, it is determined that items have been removed from the Vehicle, that additional damage has occurred since the time the User submitted their bid, and/or there is a title type discrepancy, the User will have the option to purchase the Vehicle at the original price or cancel the sale.  Odometer readings that differ from the listed mileage by less than 2,000 miles (3,320 KM) do not qualify for transaction cancellation.

  2. Acceptance of the successful Offer to Purchase will be communicated by e-mail notification to the winning Bidder following the close of the sale (the “Acceptance of Offer”).   The Acceptance of Offer will include a link to the invoice for the Goods as well as instructions to the Purchaser for payment of the Goods.
  3. All sales are final.  No purchased Asset may be returned.  No requests for reimbursement in whole or in part will be accepted.

M. Risk of Loss.  Each User takes full responsibility and assumes all risk of loss for any Vehicle purchased from the time MONSTER accepts the User’s bid.  From and after acceptance of the User’s bid (for Vehicles located at a MONSTER facility), the User acknowledges that MONSTER is acting as bailee of the User’s Vehicle until such time as the Vehicle is removed from MONSTER’s premises by the User or the User’s agent or representative.  The User agrees that under the terms of the bailment: (i) MONSTER shall not be responsible for damage to or loss of the Vehicle or parts thereof due to operational procedures in place at all MONSTER facilities, from acts of theft or vandalism, or acts of God;  (ii) MONSTER shall only be responsible for damage to or loss of the Vehicle or parts thereof caused by the direct willful or grossly negligent act or omission of MONSTER;  and (iii) MONSTER shall not be responsible for any claim of damage made after the Vehicle has left MONSTER’s premises, regardless of whether the User or any agent, employee or other representative on the User’s behalf picks up the Vehicle. The User agrees to comply, and to cause its agents and representatives to comply, with all applicable laws and regulations when removing a Vehicle from a MONSTER facility, including properly loading and securing all Vehicles for safe travel.  MONSTER personnel may load purchased Vehicles for Users upon request;  however, in so doing, MONSTER personnel take no responsibility whatsoever for ensuring that the Vehicles are properly loaded or secured for safe transport.  MONSTER shall in no event be responsible or liable for any damage occurring as a result of unsafe or improper loading or securing of a Vehicle for transport and the User agrees to indemnify, defend, and hold MONSTER harmless from any and all claims, damages, losses, liabilities, obligations, costs and expenses (including legal fees) arising from or related to any failure of the User or the User’s agent or representative to properly load and/or secure a Vehicle for transport. Once a Vehicle is removed from MONSTER’s premises it is accepted AS-IS, and under no circumstances will MONSTER be liable for subsequent claims of damage or loss of any kind or nature whatsoever.  In the event MONSTER is responsible, damages shall be limited to the lesser of (i) the amount of the diminution in value of the Vehicle as reasonably estimated by MONSTER or (ii) the auction sale price (in which case the User shall be responsible to return the Vehicle to MONSTER).  MONSTER may, in its sole discretion, resell the Vehicle at a MONSTER sale, and the difference between the original sale price and the resale price shall be conclusive as to the amount of diminution of value, if any. N. Offsite Sales.  Offsite Sales Vehicles will be available for pick up at the designated MONSTER facility or offsite address indicated.  Standard MONSTER pickup requirements and storage rates apply to Vehicles sold from offsite sale locations.  If the User fails to pick up an offsite Vehicle within six (6) days of sale, the Vehicle may, at MONSTER’s sole discretion, be moved from the offsite sale location to one of MONSTER’s facilities, and if the Vehicle has been moved, the User will be responsible for towing charges from the offsite location to MONSTER’s facility, plus additional handling and storage charges that may accrue from that day onward, for up to 30 days. After the Vehicle has been at MONSTER’s facility for 30 days and the towing and storage charges have not been paid, the Vehicle will be considered abandoned and MONSTER will process the Vehicle according to applicable law. O. Timely Removal of Purchased Vehicles.  Vehicles purchased and not removed from MONSTER parking or loading facilities by 4:45 p.m. (local time at the facility) will be moved to the locked storage area and will only be released upon payment of an additional gate, moving and storage fee if applicable.

  2. Removal of the Goods is permitted only after the receipt, by MONSTER, of bank- cleared payment in full.
  3. Removal of the Goods must be done at the location following payment or in accordance with the number of removal days identified on the individual sales listing.

  4. Packing, loading and removal of the Goods are the sole responsibility of the Purchaser and at the Purchaser’s own expense.

  6. Notice of Cancellation of a scheduled removal must be given to the MONSTER/Custodian representative at least 24 hours in advance.  Failure by the Purchaser to provide a Notice of Cancellation may result in a financial charge for administrative fees or cancellation of the Purchaser’s account.
  7. In a situation where the removal of the Goods is not possible due to MONSTER or Custodian actions or negligence, MONSTER/Custodian representative’s liability shall be limited to a refund of the full purchase price of the Goods.

A. Fees.  User agrees to pay the User fee and other fees applicable to each Asset purchased.  The current fee schedules may be accessed by registered Users from the “My Account” page of MONSTER’s Websites.  User fees apply to all items purchased at a MONSTER sale, including miscellaneous salvage items sold as “Other Goods.”  All fees are subject to change without prior notice.  The User is solely responsible for ascertaining applicable fees prior to bidding on a Vehicle. The User is buying at auction, and as such will be responsible for a series of distinct charges and fees as described in “My Account” and itemised on the Invoice.B. Payment.  Payment for Vehicles and fees may be made by wire transfer, cashier’s cheque, or money order {Canada only}.  Subject to MONSTER approval and certain additional requirements and fees, payment may also be made by company cheque, credit or debit card, or electronic funds transfer.  In addition, a total of up to $400 CAD may be paid in cash towards any and all fees due (including Vehicle sales prices), per User per day.  See MONSTER’s Website or contact MONSTER User Services for further information.You agree that any and all payments and transfers of money with MONSTER shall be in Your own name using bank account(s) and credit card(s) or other banking instruments which in turn are also in Your own name and not in an alias, and that your name appears the same in all valid, government issued personal identification which You provide to MONSTER.  You agree to fully indemnify MONSTER in the event of failure of any transaction due to the inconsistency in any of Your official documents of identification provided to MONSTER.

  1. Commencing 30 days after the sale date, a finance charge in an amount equal to the greater of 2% per month compounded monthly (24.5% per annum) or the maximum allowed by law will be charged on any unpaid balance until payment in full is received by MONSTER.
  2. Users agree to be personally liable for payment of any cashier’s cheque, money order, or cheque that is dishonoured.  In the event of a dishonoured cashier’s cheque, money order, or cheque, the User agrees to make payment within two days after receipt of notice from MONSTER of a dishonoured cheque, and to pay MONSTER’s NSF processing fees, and any and all collection costs including but not limited to, collection agency fees, administrative fees, and/or legal fees and court costs.
  3. Any User with an unacceptable number of unpaid invoices, relist fees or NSF cheques will be subject to automatic account suspension and a new security deposit requirement in an amount to be determined by MONSTER in its sole discretion.  MONSTER will retain this deposit as security against unpaid invoices.  MONSTER will return the deposit upon the User’s request if all invoices have been paid and bank-cleared, but the User’s account will remain suspended.  In the event the User fails to pay any invoice and the debt is past due, User agrees MONSTER will use the security deposit to satisfy the debt.
  4. Risk of loss passes to the Purchaser upon MONSTER’s receipt of payment in full or in part. Transfer of ownership of the Goods will only occur upon receipt, by MONSTER of bank-cleared payment in full, and removal of goods within stipulated time.

Credit Card Authorisation.  A $10.00 CAD credit card authorization will be charged to a User’s credit card on file after submitting a User’s first bid at any Auction. A User that submits one or more Bids but is not a winning Bidder will not be charged any amount against his credit card and any blocked amount will be released. Credit Card Charge-Back.  User agrees that only User shall use his credit card, is fully authorised to do so, and shall not repudiate the charge(s) incurred in his Bid and Purchase.  User agrees that the declaration of the Vehicle VIN onto the credit card or other instrument constitutes a non-voidable and irrevocable transaction that will constitute vehicular theft if payment fails. Credit Card Merchant’s Fee.  User agrees to pay a surcharge to MONSTER for using a credit card, such surcharge to be equal to the Merchant’s fee charged on MONSTER’s account. Sales Tax.  Sales tax liability for items sold on MONSTER’s Websites is determined based on the physical location of the MONSTER facility where the Vehicle is stored at the time of sale (even if the Vehicle is advertised for sale through a MONSTER facility located in a different taxing jurisdiction).  Users purchasing Vehicles from MONSTER at auction pursuant to a sales tax exemption certificate agree to indemnify, defend, and hold MONSTER harmless from any and all sales tax assessments, fines, penalties, damages, and costs, including attorneys’ and audit fees, incurred as a result of a determination by taxing authorities that the transaction was subject to the payment of sales, use, or excise tax. 

  1.  Relist Fees.  In the event a Vehicle is not paid for within the time specified by the MONSTER facility where the Vehicle was sold, User agrees that MONSTER may, in its sole and absolute discretion, cancel the sale or relist the Vehicle for sale, and the USER shall be responsible to pay a relist fee plus any collection costs, including court costs and reasonable attorney’s fees.  Relist fees may vary by facility.  The User agrees to verify relist fees prior to bidding on Vehicles.

 C. Automatic Deliveries.  Subject to prior approval by MONSTER, Users may arrange for automatic delivery by MONSTER of all Vehicles purchased.  Storage charges and gate fees may be waived for Users set up with automatic domestic delivery.  Gate fees are not waived for automatic international delivery. D. Payment for Vehicles Delivered by MONSTER.  All fees and charges on Vehicles must be paid prior to delivery, if not set up for automatic delivery.  STORAGE FEES WILL BE CHARGED ON ALL VEHICLES ASSIGNED FOR DELIVERY AFTER THE PAYMENT GRACE PERIOD HAS ELAPSED. When a delivery in progress cannot be completed, regardless of the reason, the User will be charged for a dry run both ways, plus storage at prevailing MONSTER rates.  The User must accept the Vehicle when it is scheduled for delivery to avoid dry run and storage charges. E. Priority of Application of Payments. Payments made by a User to MONSTER will be applied in the following order: first towards any unpaid fees (including but not limited to User registration fees, buyer fees, convenience, storage, loading/gate, moving, late payment, relist, and delivery fees), then towards payment of the sale price of any Vehicles purchased by the User.  For example, if a User makes a payment of $2,000 CAD, but has outstanding relist fees of $1,000 CAD, MONSTER shall apply the first $1,000 CAD towards the unpaid relist fees, with the remaining $1,000 CAD applied towards payment for Vehicles.  The User agrees that MONSTER has no duty to release Vehicles or Vehicle titles until all fees are paid in full.Upon winning a Bid, User must pay for all applicable sales tax, Auctioneer’s Fee, unit fee, any release fees at the yard, shipping fees and any customs and brokerage fees as applicable.  (**NOTE:  Premier Users buying more than four Vehicles totalling over $20,000 CAD in 1 year eligible for Auctioneer’s Buy Fee to drop to 4% for all Vehicles over the first 4 in that year.) F. Security Deposits– Bidder and Premier Users.  MONSTER may require payment of a security deposit before a Bidder User may place a bid on a vehicle.  Security deposit requirements may be changed at any time.  Current security deposit requirements may be found at MONSTER.com/security deposit. A Bidder User may request a refund of any unapplied security deposit online by visiting the Account Information page of MONSTER’s Websites.  All refunds are subject to confirmation that the security deposit is not applicable to any open bids or unpaid charges.  All refunds shall be credited to the credit card used to submit the deposit.  In the event the credit card is not valid the refund shall be made by cheque and mailed to the User at the User’s address on file with MONSTER within 30 days of receipt of written request and verification of amount due. MONSTER will collect a $600 CAD security deposit from all Premier User applicants.  MONSTER will return the Premier User security deposit upon the User’s request if all invoices and charges have been paid in full; however, the USER’s account will then be downgraded to Bidder User.  In the event a Premier User fails to pay any invoice and the debt is past due, MONSTER will use the Premier User’s security deposit to satisfy the debt.

Increment Bidding Guidelines.

Increment bidding allows Copart to increase your entered bid by one and only one increment in the event your entered bid is tied with a bid from another member. If your bid is the highest bid, then your bid will NOT be incremented. Our increments are based on the following table :
Bid Range $ Increment $
0 - 5 1
5 - 40 5
40 - 100 10
100 - 1,000 25
1,000 - 5,000 50
5,000 - 25,000 100
25,000 - 50,000 250
50,000 - 100,000 500
100,000 - 9,999,999.99 1,000

Note: The bid increment checkbox is selected by default.

Example 1: You checked the increment bid box and bid $15,000. Another bid of $15,000 has already been placed. Your bid is placed next at $15,100 because you checked the increment bid box. The car sells to you at no more than $15,100 (unless another Member bids $15,200 or more, either during pre-bidding or in the live online auction).
