For local or county auctions, notices and listings will appear in only one local newspaper. Find out which one. Many government auctions and sales, both federal and state, are listed on the FirstGov.gov web site, run by the U.S. government. A catalog of vehicles for a particular auction will be available on the day of the auction, or a few days prior, from the auction administrator.
Lots at police auctions range from brand new or graded from A down in used condition, or goods may be slightly marked. A good example would be high quality white goods. All items listed in any police auction are available for viewing and inspection prior to the sale. Faulty or damaged goods should be clearly marked, and faults are outlined by the auctioneer during the auction.
You can even use some online auction sites on your phone. While longstanding auction sites like eBay have apps you can download and use on the go, there are other options to make monitoring and bidding on the things you want easy and fast. Handbid is a silent auction app you can program to continually bid on an item up to a predetermined amount. Tophatter lets you participate in 90-second auctions for everything from electronics to toys. In short, you don't have to be tethered to your computer to participate in an online auction.

You must be willing to bid and lose in any kind of auction. You must also be willing to bid and win, and be prepared to pay cash or finance within the required time set by the auction company. You can apply for a pre-approved used-car loan at your bank or credit union, or at an online auto loan company such as Auto Credit Express, and be prepared in case you win a bid. Personal checks are not usually accepted, although credit cards, money orders, certified checks, and traveler’s checks are accepted.

Do your research. Check Kelly Blue Book for the proper price for the vehicle, including its mileage and apparent condition. Always downgrade the condition by one ranking for government auctions. Also, do some smart used-car research, such as checking Consumer Reports for reliability and the frequencies of particular repairs, and checking our road test information if it's a recent model vehicle.
