No they are just trying to get extra money off you , that's why a repo company tries to wait till the last second to send a car to the auction. so if there is some chance of you redeeming your car they want you to do it there so they can get storage fee's off you. I cover this topic and more at

If your car is reposessed do you have the right to bid for it at auction?

If your vehicle is being sold at a "Public" auction where anyone can go in and bid - then yes you can bid and/or buy your vehicle. Keep in mind that - if for instance - you owe $5000.00 and you buy your car back at auction for $3000.00 - you will still owe the lender the $2000.00 difference. In other words - you are not going to be able to get by on purchasing your vehicle at auction for less than what you owe and then not have to pay the rest to the lender.
