Auto auctions in Colorado just like all the auto auctions held in different parts of the United States are a great place to find used cars at great prices. Some of these auctions are also government auctions and police auctions. The police and the government usually sell seized cars and repo cars at auctions. The repo cars are the ones which have been either offered as collateral for a loan by the owner or are repossessed by the government because the owner has failed to pay the car loan installments. These cars are usually in a very good condition.
Other cars sold at the Auto auctions in Colorado are the cars which have been sold by the owners in order to purchase a new vehicle.

But sometimes people who need a vehicle but cannot afford a new one prefer to purchase a used car. Also rich people who like to change their cars often usually sell off their older ones at a relatively low price. These cars are usually the fancy type and one may be lucky enough to find such a car at very low price at the auto auctions in Colorado.
Even used car dealers frequent the auto auctions in Colorado in search for good bargains. Registered dealers can find very good bargains in used cars at the local auctions and live auctions apart from the other auto auctions in Columbia. Some of these auctions are held only for registered used car dealers. These dealers manage to purchase used cars in mint conditions from the state auctions and police auctions. They then sell them at a higher cost to the general public. This way they make huge profit margins. Most auctions are open to the general public also. But many people prefer to purchase used cars from dealers because at auctions test drives are generally not allowed. This is the reason that a layman would not be able to make out the condition of a used car because they may not know how to examine one. That is the reason that the general people go to used car dealers instead of going to the auto auctions directly.
The cars which sold of by users to purchase new ones or are salvaged cars i.e. they are cars reconstructed from accident wrecks especially need to be thoroughly examined before purchasing them. The dealers are expert at examining cheap cars, repo cars and seized cars and are well versed with the legalities involved in purchasing them. They usually select an auction site which is very close to their work place or residence so that they can examine and inspect all the vehicles they are purchasing in order to get the best buys, before they start bidding for these cars. They are able to discern the condition of these cars without resorting to test drives at the various auto auctions.
