Buy and sell damaged vehicles

Wrecks, accidents and damaged vehicles

Every car trader knows just how useful a damaged car can be. And when the circumstances are right, they’re willing to pay for them. OPENLANE holds online auctions for accident-damaged cars and other vehicles, connecting buyers with sellers in a seamless process. The cars might have technical damage, body damage or both. Use our advanced search options to filter out any vehicles that don’t fit your needs. You can also save your search parameters to use again in the future. Register for free to get started.

The advantages of buying damaged vehicles with OPENLANE

1. Over 4000 vehicles every day
You’ll find more than 4000 vehicles up for grabs at OPENLANE on any given day. They’re not all write-offs of course, and the selection is incredibly broad. They come from leading leasing and car rental companies, car dealers, fleet owners and manufacturers. You can bid on passenger cars, vans, light trucks and more, with many different body types available: Sedans, Station wagons, Cabrios, Coupés, Compact cars, SUVs, MPVs, Hatchbacks, Vans, Minibuses, Trucks and Motorbikes.

2. Personal support
Every damaged vehicle has a detailed description and official damage report. But if you have any questions at all, you can always contact our customer service team for advice. A fully trained representative will help you and answer your questions in your language. And the support doesn’t stop as soon as you buy a car. Delivery services and a claims service are available to all OPENLANE customers, and additional administration assistance and export documents are available for continental European customers.

3. Value for money
We’re not interested in wasting your time or your money. At OPENLANE, it’s free to register, free to contact us and even free to bid. You don’t actually pay us a thing until you purchase a vehicle. And we’ll never surprise you with hidden fees. Any costs you might have to pay are clearly stated on the bidding page, with even more information available in our FAQs. You always know what the costs will be before you even start bidding.
