About Us

We’re Vin Live Auctions! Operating in-house at Golden Motors in Columbia, SC– we’ve been providing auction services since 2018!

The newest way to sell your vehicle and maybe get more than the dealers are offering. VIN Live Auction is a unique and FUN way to sell your vehicle and we don’t stop there. ANYTHING with a vin can be run on this auction (Cars, Trucks, SUVs, ATVs, Boats, Motorcycles, Motorhomes, Campers, tractors and trailers)! As long as it has a vin we can post it to the auction and you get to watch it LIVE, run on a national platform that is growing every week to more and more dealers across the country.  

Golden Motors created VIN Live Auctions to change the way customers experience working with dealerships and selling their vehicle in a positive and fun way.


Our Live Auctions generally take less than an hour. We break out our camera gear and do a 20 minute thorough inspection of your vehicle. The Auction itself generally lasts 20 minutes. The rest is up to you to make your decision on selling.

YES! We encourage it! Inside our mobile van we have a tv set up with chairs where you can sit and watch the auction take place in real time LIVE and in front of many dealerships.

We are partnered with ACV Auctions and all of our auctions are set directly in front of a large group of dealerships throughout the United States. ACV Auctions is a full-service, coast-to-coast, wholesale automotive marketplace, providing unmatched transparency that thousands of dealers trust

No worries! If a dealership from another state bids and wins the auction. We will handle the transportation of your vehicle. 

It’s simple. When we set up the auction, you choose a reserve bid price. Generally it can be up to $2000 over the Kelly Blue Book Value of your vehicle. 

If the auction never reaches your reserve amount, then you can decide whether or not you still want to sell. 

You need to have your driver’s license and your vehicle’s title or payoff info. 

Everything that has a VIN number associated with it. This applies to: Cars, Trucks, Motorcycles, ATVs, Snowmobiles, Boats, RVs, Trailers, Tractors or anything else like that.
