The best place to buy cheap cars is at the police car auctions. Police auctions have the largest number of vehicles put up at auctions as they get the vehicles from various different sources. These vehicles have been seized by government agencies like the FBI, DEA, IRS and departments in the police force and then made available to public buyers through various different auctioneers. The vehicles are often pre owned by the government and are surplus vehicles which are sold at less than 95% of the original price because of certain laws which govern these sales. The best part is that most of the vehicles are within 2 or 3 years old and in top condition, so you get an almost brand new car at a throw away price at these government auctions.
Vehicles which are available at police car auctions
You can get yourself the most recent models in any kind of make from these vehicle auctions. The vehicles are those which have been seized and impounded because of drug raids, tax evasions, non repayment of loans taken to buy the vehicles and various other reasons by the repo auctions and other gov auctions and local auctions. Luxury cars which drug lords and those who deal in contraband goods owned can be found here for the same throw away prices. If you have a dream to own a swanky vehicle but do not have the means to do so, you can still get yourself one of these vehicles from the used car auctions which take place regularly in every town and city of the country.
