Your security deposit is fully refundable. If you haven't purchased a car, have no active bids and no outstanding fees due on your account, you may request a refund of your security deposit at any time in My Account. 

If you purchase a car, your deposit is held until your car is paid for in full and picked up from the auction lot. Once the car is paid for and picked up, you can request a refund of your deposit. Your security deposit refund will be issued to the original form of payment. A minimum of $400 must be kept as security deposit at all times to keep your buying account active.
