Touts can be a great source of information for quality seized vehicles in the United States. However, this may be an illegal way to get vital information about auto auctions, but they do have the inside information that you will need to get a used car at a low price.
There are car auctions in your area that you may know nothing about, but a tout will be able to get you this information. Most times, they will charge you a fee for the information.
The tout also can help you during the auction with details about the bidding process and how you should bid.
The Internet is a good source of information for those who are looking to buy a quality vehicle at an auction. However, you have to be careful because there are so many scams out there and people who try to take advantage of the innocent.
Government auctions are an excellent source for a good vehicle. The government repossesses vehicles from criminals or pick up stranded vehicles and resell them to the general public.
These auctions are held at specific times and locations. Sometimes, the U.S. government will announce their auctions through the newspaper media, but unless you purchase that paper, the date may pass without you knowing that it was held.
Word of mouth is also another great source for finding a quality vehicle. You might know someone who knows about these government auctions.
There are mailing lists that the government allows the public to join in order to be notified of various auctions. Getting on a list like that will allow you to get the opportunity to purchase a quality vehicle.
A used car dealer is a reliable source for quality seized vehicles in the United States. Banks and the police department are also privy to auction information. The banks may take part in the auction by providing their inventory of repossessed vehicles.
So if you know someone who is a car dealer, police officer or bank official, you will be able to attend a public car auction and be able to get a quality seized vehicle for less than retail price.
