Public Auction Car ? How To Get One
Have you ever wondered what happens to those cars that the police confiscate from criminals? Or those cars that have been abandoned at the side of the road and have to be towed away at public expense? Well, typically they end up at public car auctions, where people can pick up some good deals for not a lot of money. Welcome to the world of the public auction car a.k.a savings on wheels.
But that’s not the only kinds of cars that will be for sale at these auctions! You’ll also find cars that have been repossessed because the former owner couldn’t keep up the payments, cars that used to form the fleet of rental car companies, and best of all, cars that used to form the fleet of the police and government workers.
A public auction car needs to be sold quickly and efficiently, and the way to do that is to hold an auction where people can come and kick the tires, take a look under the hood, and then drive away in a nice new ride (or be towed away by someone just looking for a place to cannibalize parts!)
You can attend these auctions in person – there are about 40 sites around the country where these are held – or you can attend them at home, from the comfort of your own computer.
If you’re looking for an inexpensive public auction car, check out the web for these auction sites. You’ll find photos of the car, their specs, and their minimum bid price – which can be pretty low. Of course you’ll be competing against other people so sometimes that bid can go up pretty high – you’ll need to be patient and know when to fold and walk away. Don’t get caught up in the adrenalin rush of outbidding someone who is trying to take ‘your’ car – although that happens more at live auctions than online ones, it’s a definite danger for overly competitive types.
