How to Buy

We Have Four Ways to Buy Big on SalvageSale

Sealed Auction

Unreserved sealed bid- specified bid amounts are not published, but ranked. Bidders can place multiple bids until the close of the auction.  Sealed offer-   buyers place a sealed offer on their desired unit of purchase. Sellers then have up to 5 days after the item closes to select the winning offer.

Make an Offer

Submit your best offer for an item and the seller can accept it, decline it, or make a counter offer.
