Benefit from the Deals Repo Auctions Have to Offer

Aug 17, 2007
Expert bargain hunters know that repo auctions can be some of the best possible locations to find great deals on used cars and trucks. But, many people beyond the serious bargain hunters tend to shy away from these auctions for fear they might net bad results. The truth is repo auctions are hidden treasures if buyers know what to look for.

The advantages to buying at repo auctions are many, and include such things as:

* Instant purchases. When you buy at a repo auction, you're expected to pay and close the deal right away. When a good purchase is made, the gratification is instant.

* Selection. Repo auctions that are held on behalf of banks and other lending agencies tend to include a huge variety of cars and trucks. Kind of like a fast-moving, used car lot, these auctions can include everything from cars that are only a few weeks or months old to models that are slight bit more aged.

A repo auction that's held for multiple lenders can include almost every make and model under the sun and some shoppers might not expect to see.

* Quality. A lot of repo auctions include vehicles that are in incredibly good shape. Just because prior owners fell short of making payments doesn't mean they didn't care for the vehicles in question. The truth is bad things can happen to good people, and those who frequent repo auctions can benefit from the deal.

* Savings. This is the biggest benefit to shopping repo auctions for car and truck deals. Since the lending agencies only want to make their money back or close to it, cars and trucks can often be had for a song.

This is why many used car dealers frequent these auctions. They wouldn't be there if they didn't think they could make money off the buys, so it's a given some serious savings can present themselves.

While repo auctions are a great way to go to get solid deals on cars and trucks, it is a buyer beware world. With this in mind, it's a good idea for anyone who attends a repo auction to have a good idea of what's going to be on the block before they head out to buy.

If possible, research the auction in advance and take a look at the makes and models up for grabs. If this information can be found out in advance, it's easy to get a good list of potential buys, there value estimations and so on in advance to help guide bidding.

Once at the repo auction, it's also a good idea to arrive early, if possible, to inspect models in advance. While it's not likely you'll be allowed to test drive, you can at least check the cars and trucks out to make sure they are in good working condition.

Repo auctions can be treasure troves of great car and truck deals. Checking them out in advance can net a laundry list of benefits for shopping this way. Just exercise a little caution and it will become quickly evident why dealers themselves frequent these productions.
