Impound Car Auctions

By Edited Jun 20, 2014 1 1

Have you ever wanted to learn more about impound car auctions, and how you can profit from them by getting your next car from one? If so, you're in luck – because this article was written with you in mind. Specifically, we're going to talk about what these auctions are, and how the work.

Impound car auctions are held by various law enforcement agencies, as well as state governments and the federal government. If you search on the Internet for "impound car auctions," you're likely to find free sites that list where and when such auctions will take place near you. (Many impound auctions are actually organized by private companies, by the way, but all of the cars come from Uncle Sam).

Most of the time, the same group will hold all its impound auctions at the same place and time. That is, if your police department holds impound auctions, they might all take place at a certain car lot at six pm on the last Wednesday of the month. To take part, you might have to sign up ahead of time, but more likely you just have to show up before the bidding begins and present your driver's license (you have to be eighteen or over).

Then you have free reign to bid on all of the cars that have been impounded by your local sheriff, or by the Drug Enforcement Agency, or by the Internal Revenue Service, or the FBI, or maybe even the CIA. All those criminals' beautiful cars are yours for the right price.

And don't worry about retribution or anything like that: an instance where someone bought a car at an auction and was later harassed by its original owner, no matter how dangerous a criminal he was, is virtually unheard of.

To summarize, this article has shown you some key things to keep in mind when shopping for your next auto at an impounded car auction. Now that you've finished reading this guide, you should be ready to start looking for an auction in your local area!

Great helpful information for impounded cars. We had a big storm and there must have been thousands of cars damaged with hail. It will probable take them years to sell by auction. But I would definitely not buy one of these as some should have been written off. They are not road worthy yet still being sold. Its wrong. great article thanks.
