Did you know 55 customers won a brand new vehicle on DealDash.com since October 2018?
You might wonder why anyone would want to shop for a new vehicle on DealDash. Wouldn’t it take an enormous number of bids to win such a high-dollar item? The answer to that question is, “Most times yes, but sometimes no.” So far, the best deal was a 2019 Nissan that sold for only $670.99 and the winner only used 633 bids.
Some new vehicle winners got a fantastic deal using a relatively low number of bids while others did not. Just like any other auction, it’s a matter of bidding in the right vehicle auction at just the right time.
It appears that most of these brand new vehicles have a BIN price of $25,000.00 to $31,000.00 but some are more. Of course, a truck or a Tesla has a higher retail value.
If you are new and did not yet have the opportunity to participate in a vehicle auction, no sweat, you can still bet on one of the five new vehicles up for auction as of this writing – the Volkswagen, 4WD truck, one of the two Chevrolets or a Nissan. Each vehicle description includes detailed information under the headers of: Mechanical, Exterior, Interior, Safety, Dimensions and Fuel Efficiency.
To Bid or Not to Bid
Before placing bids on a new vehicle it’s important to know the following information upfront:
- Winners are responsible for Tax, Title & Registration fees (for BIN/Dealership MSRP pricing) upon taking ownership of the vehicle
- Images show options & trim packages that are not included
- The vehicle must be signed for in person and collected from the local dealership within 14 days of confirmation of payment from DealDash to the dealer.
I cannot imagine anything more exciting than winning a brand new vehicle, especially for several thousand dollars less than the retail value. Nonetheless, winning a new vehicle takes some planning to ensure we have enough money to cover the closing cost, tax, title and registration. We each must figure out how much we can afford or if we could quickly get a loan to cover it.
If we are already in the market to purchase a brand new vehicle, that’s great. If we have already been saving money to purchase a new vehicle, anyway, we might have everything to gain and nothing to lose by seriously bidding for a new vehicle on DealDash. If we win, you might SAVE several thousand dollars, and if we do not win, perhaps we could BIN? But we should only bid on the make of vehicle that we really want to win because once we win a vehicle we cannot come back to win another one that we like better. Previous winners of other car auctions are not eligible to participate in this auction. One vehicle per customer makes it possible for more DealDash customers to have an opportunity to win a deal of a lifetime.
Even if we cannot afford to try to win a new vehicle ourselves, it might be a good idea to pay close attention to the screen names placing oodles of bids on them. Several previous winners placed more than 100,000 bids or more to win a vehicle. Therefore, if some players do not win but BIN that might mean they could get 100,000 bids or more back. Perhaps that might explain why some players appear to have an endless supply of bids when competing with us in other auctions. I don’t know about you, but I would not want to compete in the same auctions with anyone who has that kind of bidding power.
