Important Terms to Know About Automobile Auctions
Auctions, places where people can bid on items, may take place at an auction house or online. Automobile auctions strictly involve vehicles, many of which are government repossessions or public seizures. How do they work? Auctioneers oversee the entire process, explaining the details of a particular car, then mediating the bidding. The car or other vehicle goes to the highest bidder at the end of the bidding war. Whether you’re in the market for a car or truck, you can usually pick on an old or new one up pretty cheap at auction, depending on the make, model, timing of the auction and demand. Here are some important terms to know about automobile auctions.

It is common for many people to want to trade in their old car or truck and buy a new one. This is what draws some people to automobile auctions. After all, it is possible to get amazing prices on old or classic cars and luxury vehicles at auto auctions. Many of these vehicles are even cheaper than what you will find at auto dealership sales or through wholesale dealers. When you attend a used motor vehicle sale like this, there are some questions to consider, and a few of them are listed below.

  • What types of used cars, trucks, and SUVs will be auctioned off?
    The makes and models of automobiles will vary from auction to auction. While some may offer modified luxury cars, others may auction off used police cruisers and repossessed vehicles from drug dealers. Therefore, it is prudent to inquire ahead of time.

  • Is the auction held online as well as in a public venue?
    While some auto auctions are strictly local, others are only held online. Then there are some that may be accessible in person, as well as via the web. Just make sure you understand what time the auction is held and how you are able to make bids.

  • Were the cars and trucks repossessed by banks or taken in government seizures?
    As you may know, many motor vehicles that are auctioned off were seized by the police or repossessed by banks. If this is the case, you should pay close attention because there may be some damage done to the vehicle.

  • How do I receive the vehicle if I have the winning bid?
    Be sure to make this inquiry ahead of time since you may have to travel to the auction location to collect your car or truck that you win through bidding.
