Choosing a car at the most popular auctions in the USA copart.com and iaai.com it is very important to know who is the seller of the lot - it is necessary to avoid problems when buying from the "auction", which often tricked to give a badly broken car with a "stuck" bumper and headlights as almost car without damage. You can see an example of such lot on the page "About AutoHelperBot".
