The McConkey Auction Group’s “Buyer Protection Plan” (BPP) is a tool that we provide to help make your bidding and buying time more productive. Fundamentally, all of the representations made in the course of offering a vehicle for sale at our auctions are made by and are the responsibility of the seller. The responsibility for confirming those representations in a timely manner (see each auction’s “General Policies”) falls with the buyer. The “BPP” allows you, the buyer, to hire us to carry out those confirmation responsibilities and if necessary, to begin the process of arbitration in the event of a discrepancy.

The “BPP” additionally provides you with the assurance that, in the event of a problem that is not detected in the inspection of the vehicle, you will have our support and participation in resolving that problem.

BPPs must be purchased on day of sale

1. When confirming your purchase you can request a “BPP” from the cashier or sales representative. Our inspection team will conduct a test drive and visual inspection to determine if there are issues with the vehicle that should result in arbitration, if so the deal will be placed into arbitration and you will be contacted.

2. When the vehicle arrives at your dealership you should perform a standard safety & service inspection (Note that the BPP inspection is not designed to cover this level of inspection).

3. If a defect or required repair surfaces in a system or component that is specifically covered by the terms of sale and auction Policy within the required time (either 7 or 14 days) you should contact the auction to have the matter resolved. The auction will, at their discretion, either reimburse you or repair the vehicle up to the maximum amount of the applicable coverage. KCI, at their discretion, will cancel the sale.


1. Buyers have the option of purchasing inspection service on any vehicle purchased however the BPP coverage will only apply to covered items. Note that modified vehicles are subject to limited coverage.

2. The auction must receive notice of any problems by the close of business either 7 or 14 business days following the sale, depending upon the program option purchased. Sale Day is Day #1.

3. Verification of diagnosis and repair estimates will be provided by the auction, or at a shop selected by the auction. The Auction, at its discretion, will cancel the sale or repair the vehicle. Buyers are responsible for promptly moving the vehicle to the inspection or repair facility designated by the auction.

4. Vehicles that have been resold, driven excessively, damaged or misused after leaving the auction premises are disqualified from Buyer Protection Plan claims eligibility.

5. The repair or reimbursement coverage provided by the auction is limited to the maximum amount of coverage according to the level of inspection chosen at the time of sale.
