Advice For Attending Public Car Auctions

Jul 12, 2008
Public car auctions are rapidly becoming popular all over the United States; those who are able to gain access to these auctions often go and buy cars from them at a great discount either for their own enjoyment or to turn around and sell for profit..

These auctions are held in every state, and there's probably one happening near you. They can be government subsidized auctions, police auctions and dealer auctions. In recent days, as Internet gets more popular with the general public, there are also online car auctions. Some of those auctions have a large inventory full of seized and repossessed property, may sell not only cars but also trucks, vans, boats, and other types of major items, usually at a great discount.

One major piece of advice about attending these government and police auctions is that you should keep in mind that the vehicles being sold off are usually confiscated from people who had gotten into trouble with the law. This means that while the cars may look new and great from the outside, there may be hidden content inside the vehicle left by their former owners, so definitely bring someone you trust who knows about inspecting cars to help you look over the vehicle you are interested in.

Buying a car at an auctions, as with any kind of business transaction, you should first check that you are dealing with a verified organization, so that you can to rely on the continued quality of their service and merchandise once you have made your purchase.

Other people attending these auctions can include used car dealers, who often go to bid on these cars, sometimes buying many of them so they can stock their own dealership lots. You will get a better bargain if you don't try to compete with these professional dealers who know all about the market price of these cars and buy from auctions often.

That's why before you go to these used car auctions, you should first do some careful research on the types and models of vehicles that you may be interested in, so that when you come across likely looking ones you will be in a better position to judge exactly the sort of discount you can get at these police and government auctions.

You might be asking, how do you find out the next auction that will be held near you? Well, there's a lot of information available online, of course. Some of these databases are free, but as with many things in life, free information is usually only worth what you pay for it. Truly useful websites with clean up-to-date auction information will generally charge a small fee for access.

Have a great time buying the car of your dreams at low prices on auction!
