*AAV Average Auction Values shown on Vehicle Search correspond to the national average wholesale prices that have been adjusted for mileage. The averages are calculated from aggregated auction house transaction history.


Sample Report Notes:

  • Prices are in US dollars for US auction houses and CAD dollars for Canadian auctioneers.
  • The Lane number tells us which auction lane the vehicle will pass through.
  • The Run number is the sequence number within the lane. A low run number means it will be earlier; a high run number means it will be later. Keep in mind some auctions sell 60 or 70 cars per lane per hour.
  • Sale Date shows the date of the auction and when the lane opens.
  • A Condition Report button allows us to view more detailed information for a vehicle including tire tread depths and damage reports.
  • The Grade is a numerical rating for the vehicle. Each auction house has it own system. Some use scales from 0 to 5 where 0 is very poor (a vehicle being sold for scrap) and 5 is nearly perfect, very clean. Some houses use whole numbers; others use fractions.
  • AAV represents the average value which similar vehicles have sold for (some auctioneers refer to this as MMR).
  • The Buy It Now number is what the seller is asking now for an immediate purchase of the vehicle. We may be able to negotiate with the vendor to change the price.
  • The photography section of a vehicle report typically shows exterior, interior, cabin shots. The instrument cluster is shown with mileage indicated.
  • Odometer readings are in miles for US vehicles and kilometres for Canadian.
