Buying a Car at a Police Auction

By Edited Dec 13, 2015 0 0

There's a completely new method for the average buyer (just like you and me) to get a genuine good deal on a car, truck, or any other vehicle; think about getting the next car at a police auction.

In cities and towns from coast to coast, various police stations hold a sale every year to reduce the extra inventory they have been storing inside their compound yards all year. Each year, police departments end up having an excessive number of seized or unclaimed goods, including vehicles and even watercraft. They do use some of the cars themselves; that is why you see a lot of unmarked police vehicles on the roads nowadays. However a lot of vehicles are sold to the highest bidder at auction.

Vehicles, trucks, vans, and watercraft are not the only products available at discount prices at police auctions. You can also discover smaller products such as jewelry, artwork, furniture, and office equipment and furnishings. When criminal action takes place, police departments all over the country have the right to seize any property that's been used in the process of illegal activity or may have been gained by using ill-gotten cash. Much of the time, the police do just that.

In reality, there is often quite a surplus of items (that is, greater than the police station is able to use) so they will sell off a lot of seized product at public auction to get rid of the items and make a little extra money for the police coffers.

Although there is a range of goods for unbelievably low prices, undoubtedly, cars are the most favored things at police auctions every year. You only have to head down to your local vehicle dealer to understand why. Brand new, and in many cases used, cars are utterly expensive if you buy them off the lot, thus a lot more people are looking for alternative ways to acquire a good car at a good price, and one location to go for your future new car is a police auction.

Typically, there is a wide variety of cars you can pick from. You can come across ordinary-looking sedans like Honda Accords, fancy cars like Corvettes and the like, practical automobiles like Ford or Chevy trucks, or just about any type of vehicle that piques your attention.

These days, there is even an additional benefit. Some police auctions will allow online bids, both prior to the auction starts or with real-time bidding that you can do countless miles away in your own lounge room. That is right; you do not even necessarily need to be there to win!

Of course, it can be difficult to know precisely when and where these kinds of auctions will take place, but if you prefer to avoid doing the investigation on your own, you can find sites specializing in locating auctions for you, usually for a minimal yearly fee. Signing up with this type of service could make your police car auction experience even more effective, because your time is freed up a little plus you also get all the insider know-all to be able to bid your way to owning a new car.
