You could very likely buy an quality vehicle from  seized car auctions. Maybe even the car of your dreams for thousands of dollars less than a new or used vehicle from the dealer. Although many people associate seized automobiles with junk, you can still save a lot of money and get more value at the same time when buying from these seized car auctions. There are many misconceptions out there which ruin the reputation of seized cars and you should learn
  • The truth about these concerns:

One misconception that you should be aware is that seized automobiles once belonged to criminals. This statement is false since not all seized automobiles come from criminals. There are a significant number of ordinary civilians who have their cars seized from them due to failure to pay debts and the like.

If you buy a car or truck from an seized car auction don’t think that these vehicles are always in bad shape. You will be surprised to know that most of the seized vehicles on display for auction are in good condition. There are even brand new cars up for grabs in some of these auctions.

Usually you can acquire a background check on the automobile that you are interested in and plan to purchase before you actually buy it. Before you buy anything from these seized car auctions, you should be able to do a little research on its history and records. Auto auctions usually give information regarding the seized cars for free, including history reports on the seized car that you wish to potentially buy.

There are various seized car auctions available to the public for free. Having a driver’s license makes you eligible to participate in bidding. There are some auctions which are exclusive and which require membership or registration to participate. Be able to choose from the car selections from each auction to know which one to bid.

You can perform a preliminary inspection of the vehicles for auction of your choice when you plan to buy one. Most seized car auctions allow the bidder to inspect the car up close. Usually, these inspections are set in specific dates so make sure you are aware of these schedules.

It is possible for you to buy seized cars or trucks in good condition for a low price. Usually you will encounter cheap initial bids since these cars are abundant abd banks want to get rid of them. You can get your chosen car for a cheap price if it happens that you have no more opposing bidders. If you succeed in doing such, you would put yourself in a position that saves you a lot of money compared to buying a brand new car.

Welcome, Recommended Car Auction Data Base

Hello and welcome!

My name is Samuel and I am a car auction enthusiast.

I periodically purchase cars from auctions and resell them for profit. No, I don't want to sell you a money making scam it's just something I do now and then.

I still work a real job, just enjoy the deals I find at auctions. I especially like older 4x4 trucks.

Anyway I thought it would be something good to pass along tips and various resources I use, so those of you looking to buy your next car from an auction may get a better understanding how it works and what to expect.

Below are links to the Gov-Auction site I use to find the auctions in my area and even further down are my blogs filled with many tips about car auctions.

The Auction site is hyped up a bit (most are) but it does a much better job giving you customer service and good data than any others I have tried.

Many other auction buyers use and recommend this site as well. See the links below

Enjoy! Happy auction adventures,
