The previous answers needlessly discourage people from ever buy government repo cars. But the truth is you can find some of the best cars for excellent prices at government auctions. and they do sell the cream of the crop. True, police auctions tend to have not the best cars, but federal agencies (like Marshals and Secret Service) sell really nice high end and relatively new vehicles. Also, almost all government auctions will allow you to preview, inspect, and examine the cars prior to the auction.

Sure, but what are you getting? Don't you think that they have already taken the cream of the crop before the auction?

If you are really interested in auctions, I would STRONGLY suggest that you do not pay anything up front and that you inspect the cars before you bid on them, know its book value value and your limit. What if it needs a new engine or transmission? Would the price and aggrevation be still worth it?

Though purchasing from government repo auctions can save you money, the quality of the cars are not that great. I suggest that you check out more car auctions or classifieds and search for the car that you desire. If you are thinking about budget, you can also use online free car advertisings and compare used car values and cars pricing. This way you can get the specific model of the car that you desire and you can also choose which would fit your budget.

Car Auctions - a Great Way to Buy a Used Car?

Searching for a car to buy can be a major headache. If you’re looking for a used car, there are several ways you can go about it. You can ask friends and neighbors if they knowing anyone selling a car. You can go through a local dealer and pay an outrageous amount in fees or you can go through a car auction. There are public car auctions, online car auctions and government auctions for cars. They are all great ways to find a good deal on a used car. Government Car Auctions These can produce some really good finds. Here you will find cars that have been retired from duty as a police or government car. You will also find cars, trucks and SUV that have been seized and need to go. The government only has so much room to store these vehicles, so they auction them to the public from time to time. You can go to an actual onsite auction or find them online. Public Car Auctions Usually, police auctions are held locally, but some can be found online. These are often at the state level, if they are government cars, but can also be held by repossession companies as well. Sometimes these are held by car dealers each week at regular times for both new and used vehicles. Many of these places even offer an email list you can sign up for to be kept aware of upcoming events. Online Auctions No need to leave the comfort of your home for this one. You just go to the online car auction site, browse around and make your bid. It’s that easy. No waiting in line. Online auctions are usually more than one dealer with cars to offer, again, both new and used. Bidding takes place online and you can see right away where you are in the process. Buyers can also leave feedback for dealers and transactions. This is very helpful when trying to decide who is a reputable source. So, if you are in the market for a new or used car, consider checking out a car auction as a way to make your purchase.
