Titled Lots

For questions on a titled item please contact our Title Office at  616-261-4979. 


For auctions conducted outside of the state of Michigan:

Buyers will be responsible for taxes and plates at their local Secretary of State or DMV office. Titles will be given at the auction location or sent via mail upon receipt of secure payment.


Michigan residents, we are required by the State of Michigan to broker all titled items sold. A $95.00 broker fee will be charged for all vehicles which we need to broker. In addition, a $15.00 fee for title transfer will be charged. We can apply for your plates and registration if you so choose. If you wish to have us do so, you MUST provide us with proof of insurance for the purchased vehicle before you can remove it from the auction site. If not, you must be prepared to tow or trailer your vehicle. The appropriate fees will be added to your invoice. 

Non-Michigan Residents will pay the $95.00 Broker Fee and necessary fees according to their state rules for titled vehicles. Please note that buyers will need to sign the appropriate paperwork required by the state for title transfers. Title processing may take up to 15 business days. Then will take 4-10 business days to receive your title from the Secretary of State.  

For Out of Country buyers, the State of Michigan requires we collect 6% sales tax and transfer the title as an “In-Transit” through the Michigan Secretary of State before the title is issued to the buyer. All out of country buyers must contact our title department to start the paperwork before the item can go across the border. We will need to obtain the appropriate documents and signatures to transfer the title; this could take 3 to 5 weeks. We recommend all vehicle purchases made with the intent of taking the vehicle out of the country contact the title dept. as soon as a winning bid is accepted.  For questions on a titled item located in Byron Center please contact our title dept. at (616) 261-4988 ext. 1144,

The working/running condition of an item may not be known and may not always be listed in the items description. Sometimes we do know and list the condition of the items, but many times do not. Please note that all sales are final regardless of the purchase items condition, unless the discretion of an Orbitbid.com Manager deems differently.

Dynamic Bidding

Posted closing times and displays of Auction Co.'s current time are approximate. Auction Co. reserves the right to close early or extend auctions at any time at its discretion. It is strongly recommended that bids be placed early to avoid losing out due to an ill-timed, last minute bid. All times based on Eastern Standard Time. Dynamic bidding - The dynamic bid on this website is a feature that does NOT allow an item to sell at the end of the auction until there is 10 minutes of bidding inactivity. Example - An item is bid on at 7:50pm. An auction is scheduled to close at 8:00pm. When this bid is placed the ending time will automatically extend to 8:10pm. When another bid is placed at 8:01 the auction will extend until 8:20pm. This will give bidder 19 minutes to place another bid. If no bids are placed this auction will conclude at 8:20pm. The key to your dynamic bidding feature is that the auction extends from the preset closing time in 10 minute intervals, NOT 10 minutes from when you placed your bid.

Sales Subject to Approval

This means that an items sale is contingent upon receiving the approval of the Owner, Bank, Court, Trustee or Lien Holders affiliated with that particular piece. Please call (866) 672-4806 for the Approvals on all items that sell subject and we will be happy to assist you.

Pre-Bidding

You can place bids on an item before the auction starts, this is especially helpful if you will not be available on the day of the auction.

When an item status shows as “Pre-Bidding” this simply means that bids placed are not displayed on the auction site until the date the auction is scheduled to open.

Although there may actually be pre-bids placed on the item, an item in pre-bidding status will show # of bids placed as 0 and the current bid (required bid) will show as the opening bid.

You may place a pre-bid through the same process as normal bidding. You can monitor & view your bidding activity on items in pre-bid status from your Watch List.

When you place a pre-bid, if you are notified that your bid is not higher than another user’s pre-bid this means that another bidder(s) has already placed a pre-bid equal to or higher the amount of the pre-bid you are attempting to place. You will need to raise your pre-bid if you want to be in the winning position.

All pre-bids will be tallied and shown when the auction actually begins.

Incremental Bidding

A bid may be placed for any amount equal to or greater than the current required bid amount, which means your bid amount is not required to be an increment of the posted bid increment.

Example:

  • Current bid at $10.00 with a bid increment of $5.00.   
  • Minimum bid required would be $15.00. 
  • A bid may be placed for any amount equal to or greater than $15.00.  
  • The bid amount is not required to be in increments of $5.00; therefore a bid could be placed for $17.00 or $76.00 or whatever amount you wish to bid as long as it is equal to or greater than the minimum bid required.  
  • The winning bid may end up at any amount. It may not be divisible by the stated increment. The winning bid will be the highest 

Refer to Automatic Bidding section for further explanation of the convenient method of placing an automatic bid.

Automatic Bidding (max bid, auto bid, proxybid)

Automatic Bidding (auto bid) option makes bidding convenient allowing you to enter the maximum bid amount* that you are willing to bid on an item. Based on your Account Preferences for notification, you may be notified whenever your auto bid increases &/or when it is exceeded.

The auction company or other bidders do not have access to see your auto bid amount. You are the only person that can see your auto bid amount (displayed in your Watch List).

Your auto bid will not “jump” to the maximum amount. The auto bid will increment up only with competing bids until either the item completes with you as the high bidder, or until your auto bid has been exceeded by another bid.

If another bidder already has an auto bid in place when you place your auto bid, the (2) competing auto bids will continue to increment until either the lower auto bid is maxed out; or if both auto bid amounts are the same the auto bid that was placed first will become winning position of the bid.

Example #1:

1. Minimum bid is at $10.00 with a $5.00 bid increment.
2. Bidder #1 places an auto bid for $77.00.  
3. No other auto bids are in place, therefore Bidder #1 is high bidder at $10.00.
4. Bidder #2 places an auto bid for $23.00.
5. Bids would compete with each other as follows: 

 Bidder #1 - $10
 Bidder #2 - $15
 Bidder #1 - $20
 Bidder #2 - $23 (maximum auto bid placed)
 Bidder #1 - $25 (high bid position)   

The high bid is $25 not $28 because Bidder #2’s auto bid was exceeded at an increment other than $5.

Example #2:

1. Minimum bid is $10.00 with a $5.00 bid increment.
2. Bidder #1 places an auto bid of $77.00.
3. No other auto bids are in place, therefore Bidder #1 is high bidder at $10.00
4. Bidder #2 places an auto bid for $25.00
5. Bids would compete with each other as follows: 

 Bidder #1 - $10
 Bidder #2 - $15
 Bidder #1 - $20
 Bidder #2 - $25 (maximum auto bid placed)
 Bidder #1 - $30 (high bid position) 

The high bid is $30 because Bidder #2’s auto bid was exceeded at an increment equal to $5. 

Example #3:

1. Minimum bid is $10.00 with a $5.00 bid increment.
2. Bidder #1 places an auto bid of $25.00.
3. No other auto bids are in place, therefore Bidder #1 is high bidder at $10.00
4. Bidder #2 places an auto bid for $25.00 (same amount as Bidder #1 auto bid)
5. Bids would compete with each other as follows: 

 Bidder #1 - $10
 Bidder #2 - $15
 Bidder #1 - $20
 Bidder #2 - $25
 Bidder #1 - $25 (high bid position) 

The high bid is $25 with Bidder #1 in high bid position because Bidder #1 placed the $25.00 auto bid before Bidder #2.

*Buyer’s premium and sales tax will be in addition to the winning bid amount.
