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.
eBid has been buying and selling online since 1999. Millions of sellers use eBid to sell their products at auction in more than 13,300 categories. Some of the main features of eBid that make it attractive to online sellers, are its free online store setup, free listings, low sale fees ranging from 0% to 3%, ease of use and human, non-robotic support. Sellers also benefit from a full email and in-app notification system, meaning they get notifications of their eBid activity onto their mobile device.
We also looked at the cost of each service and whether the fees outweigh the benefits. Fees can take away a large chunk of your selling profits, so make sure you understand what each company charges for listing fees, final value fees, and seller verification fees. We calculated all these fees and found that eBay has the highest final value fees, while companies like eBid doesn’t charge listing fees.

That’s also where we got our name – the Property & Evidence Room is where all these goods are stored at your local law enforcement agencies. We just shortened it to just PropertyRoom.com.
The second way of finding government car auctions is through an online auction directory service that does the legwork for you — for a fee. Fees vary but average about $40, usually a one-time charge for unlimited online access to listings of auctions. The fee is certainly reasonable if it’s going to help you save hundreds or thousands of dollars on your car purchase.
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.
