Please remember the salvage buyers need very clear and descriptive information about the condition of the salvage. They will use your description and pictures to make their bid. Be sure to include a complete list of all the specifications, a complete description of the damage, and any additional features your salvage may possess. Remember, too much information is always better than not enough!
  8. The next section is the “Picture Submission” page. You have four options for sending us the images of your salvage. Read the descriptions of the four options below.

Most digital cameras and scanners create images in a very large size. Some images can be over 1.4 mg. BTS likes to size pictures using 410 X 300 pixels. This is 4.167” in width by 3.13” in height with 72 resolution or screen resolution. Most likely, the software you use to produce these images can reduce the size of your original image by converting it to a smaller size. You then can save the smaller images to a different file name without altering your original photos. Sending us larger images greatly slows the upload process. Any help in reduction of image size would be greatly appreciated and will save you time during the salvage submission process.

All salvage on Big Truck Salvage is closed at midnight EST on the Closing Date. The next business day, BTS will e-mail or fax contact information for the highest bid, a list of all bids and a fee bill for services to the person submitting the salvage, as well as, the examiner, if listed.
Once the seller receives his/her results, he/she is responsible for contacting the high bidder to award the salvage, preferably within 14 days. The seller must make arrangements with the buyer for payment, transfer of title and salvage pick-up within 30 days. After 30 days, the buyer has the right to reject the salvage or re-negotiate the bid.

BTS has created a downloadable salvage survey sheet packet for sellers. This survey sheet can be used either as a guide for collecting information about your salvage or for sellers who would rather manually fill out the submission information than use our submission process. This packet includes a salvage survey sheet for every type of salvage we sell. Simply fill out the information, e-mail it along with your images or print it out and overnight it to us, and we will enter the salvage for you. The salvage survey sheet packet was created using Adobe Acrobat. If you need a copy of the Adobe Acrobat Reader, click here.
