How to Find Vehicle Auctions


Whether you are looking to purchase a used vehicle for your own use, or to potentially resell for a higher price and thus earn a profit ("flipping"), government vehicle auctions and other types of vehicle auctions are potentially a good place to get a vehicle at an affordable price.

So if you are looking for auctions in your local area, or within a resonable travelling distance of your location, how can you find them?

Here are a few ideas:
  1. Local Media:

    Most local newspapers contain a section containing automobile adverts. You might find auctions advertised there. Also check out listings of local events.

  2. Magazines:

    Some vehicle auctions may be advertised in local or national automobile magazines.

  3. Use Your Contacts:

    If you know people in the auto trade, there may be able to tell you about auctions in your area or that they themselves attend. Likewise, sheriff and police departments will know about any sheriff or police vehicle auctions in the area.

  4. Online:

    Many automobile auction events are listed online, and you can even use auction listing membership sites to find auctions in your area/state/province.

    As well using online resources to find real-world auctions to attend, another option would be to actually buy the vehicle online (for example, using eBay or Craigslist). Obviously, you need to make a judgement about your confidence in the seller and the risks involved in such an online purchase.

    If seriously considering purchasing a vehicle online - it's probably also worth checking on the vehicle's history using online services - VinAudit.com provides vehicle history reports with over 60+ problem checks (based on access to a database of over 40 million records from state DMVs, junk yards, and insurance carriers)..

    Additionally, you will probably also want to insist on a proper vehicle inspection (by yourself, or by a qualified mechanic that you have selected) before committing to buying the vehicle.

The above are just a few ideas to get you started, and once you set your mind to it, you may well find other ideas too. One key thing to remember is that auction-organizers want people to attend their auctions, so they are not hiding, but instead trying to reach out to as many likely attendees as possible.
