If you are in the market to purchase a car, but want to get a good deal, check out the deals available through car auctions and DEA/Government auctions. Purchasing a vehicle through car auctions can save you a lot of money and get you a newer vehicle for less than you would pay for an older model used car. Here is a list of car auction sites and how you can buy cars from these car auctions.
There are a number of federal auctions that take place across the country throughout the year, giving you the opportunity to save a lot of money on your next vehicle purchase. Many of the vehicles through these auctions come from drug raids or possession of a vehicle as a result of everything from overdue parking tickets to felony traffic stops and more. The vehicles involved can range from brand new to several years old.
Car Auctions take place every month in counties and cities across the country. Vehicles are placed in impound lots due to parking tickets and towed vehicles. If the vehicles are not picked up in a certain amount of time, they are sold at auction. The auctions can also involve public service vehicles that are no longer needed as well as cars that have been impounded for many other reasons and have not been retrieved.
There are a number of auctions that take place online, allowing you to bid for the vehicles through the internet without having to go to the actual auction site. This saves you time and money as well as allowing you to access vehicles and auctions from across the country, which provides you with more opportunities to find the vehicle you want. One such online site is http://www.onlinevehicleauction.com/.
Bidding at Auctions
In order to bid on a vehicle, you need to go to the location of the sale early enough to check out the vehicles and decide which one(s) you are interested in purchasing. For online auctions, check out the sales list on the site before the auctions begin. When you have decided which vehicles you are interested in buying, you need to register online or at the office and attend the sale. You may be asked to place a bid deposit at the time you register as well as show proof of identification.
When the bidding starts, continue bidding until you have reached your limit and no longer want to bid or until you have placed the winning bid. If you have the winning bid, you will be required to pay the bid amount minus your deposit, plus any processing and/or title fees as well as state or local taxes. Usually, payment is required at the completion of the sale or within a certain time designated by office policy. Vehicles are not allowed to be removed from the site until all fees are paid.
Depending on office policy, payments are usually accepted by cash or credit card. If you fail to make your payment on a winning bid, you forfeit your deposit and may be banned from any further sales.
