Car Auctions- Options

By: Donis Fylaktou

If you decide to buy a used car, you have several options available to you.
One of those options is either government or dealer auto auctions.
Both these are great places to find a quality car for greatly reduced prices, sometimes
as much as 90% off the cost of retail.

If you have a budget in mind, try to find out the true value of a car, and make sure it is in good condition,
and you can find an awesome deal.

In case you are new to auto auctions, you may not know all of your options.
You will probably think opening up the newspaper and finding listings is about the only way to
do it, but there are several other ways to find and attend auto auctions.

You could do the newspaper method, go to the auction preview, scout out the cars
you are interested in, research the cars online, and then go back the next day to make your bid.
But there are other ways.

There are all sorts of listings online for live auto auctions in your area, and you will probably
get a much better overview of what might be sold there than in the newspaper.

This is if you have decided on attending a live auto auction.
You could if you wish complete the whole experience at home.
If you attend an online auction, you never have to leave the comfort of your home.

Of course It depends on your preferences, but I think that an online auction would
offer you much more versatility and resources at your fingertips to decide on the perfect car and price.
If you use an online auction, you view and bid on the selection of cars without being there.
You are not limited to a specific area this way, and you can also do research while
you bid.

Quite Often the cars posted on these sites come with vehicle history reports, but you should
investigate them even more before you make you decisions.

Whether you prefer to be there when you win the car or do it remotely, you should always
research the cars that interest you as much as possible.

When going with online auctions,remember to be aware of the area it is being sold so as not
to get bogged down with delivery costs.

With live auctions, always go to the preview in order to see the condition of the cars that are up for sale.
I do not think you will be able to test drive them, but seeing them will at least eliminate
cars with obvious problems.
