The police auctions are the best pace to get a good bargain. The cars are maintained very well and are clean and ready to be take home on purchase. The police auctions allow the prospective buyers to inspect the car to their satisfaction. You can take all the time you want to inspect the car out and out. The only restriction is that test drives are not permitted. The price to be paid would only be about 10 to 20% of the market value of the car. The cars are sold at very cheap prices since the government would like to dispose off the vehicles as soon as possible. The cars are sold off in hundreds and acquired also in the same numbers hence disposing off batches of these cars are important.
