As we’ve already mentioned, there are always some risks in buying at government or repo car auctions. However, you can significantly lower your risks by knowing what you’re doing, knowing about the car(s) you want, researching your pricing, and understanding how the auction process works. Auctions typically move very fast, so you should attend a few just to learn the pace and bidding techniques.
Tenants sometimes stop paying rent on their storage units. When this happens, facility owners and employees are faced with a difficult task of liquidating and cleaning out the unit. The majority of items left behind are useful for repurposing, reselling, or personal use. Therefore, storage locker auctions reflect the needs of buyers and allow facility owners to offer more services and support local economies. Read more about Colorado's lien laws here.

These days, I have become the car dealer instead of the auctioneer. This is still a tough business and every single month I lose money on something. But you know what? The willingness to "pay my tuition" and learn a few new things along the way has been far more valuable to my work than my MBA from Duke. Remember -- "If you live it, it is not a dream."

If you run into a problem, try to work it out directly with the buyer or seller or with the auction website. If that does not work, file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission by calling toll-free 1-877-FTC-HELP (382-4357) or visiting the FTC's website. Although the Commission cannot resolve individual problems for consumers, it can act against a company if it sees a pattern of possible law violations. You also may want to contact your state Attorney General or your local consumer protection office.

Boulder, Colo., police started using PropertyRoom.com in 2007, mainly to unload property that couldn't be traced back to the owners.

Payment methods. A government auction accepts many modes of payment from credit cards or bank checks to cash. It is recommended to ask the auctioneer about the modes of payment involved before the auction starts. Besides the bidding price of the car, an additional buyer's premium fee is added onto the total. This fee is normally 5 percent of the winning bid

Unless the government will be able to find good use of these cars, they are often sold to the public. Otherwise, they're not only going to keep inventory but they have to spend for their maintenance. Though government car auctions may spell boon for people who have been dying to possess their very own luxury car, there are also disadvantages that you need to consider:

Internet auctions typically last seven days, and operate like eBay auctions. Each listing links to the auction house website where bids can be placed. From that site, bidders are asked to register in order to bid on a vehicle. Live auctions are public auctions held at a specific date and location and are usually published in newspapers in addition to the online listing at GovSales.
With most online auction sites, consider the various fees the site charges, such as listing fees, final value fee, auction fees, membership fees and more. This is how auction sites make money. However, Webstore has no fees. It is a completely open marketplace. If your old baseball card sells for $100, you get $100 in your bank. It's like selling the card in your driveway to a neighbor. Webstore isdriven by advertisements and donations from members. Of course, this means the site is dominated by ads, and this can turn off potential buyers. Still, with 300,000 registered users, it's the third largest auction site we reviewed. A significant downside to consider, especially if you plan selling full-time, is the lack of a resolution center. If there is a dispute between buyer and seller, such as a lack of payment or dissatisfied buyer, the resolution is mediated between the two private parties. For part-time sellers, this is not a significant issue, as disputes are not common. But if you're selling a lot of items, a dispute is likely to happen. That said, Webstore has tools to helping buyers and sellers develop confidence in transactions.
Cars at public auctions are often those that wouldn't sell at wholesale dealer auctions. Yes, some are flood vehicles, and Hurricane Irene should still be fresh in your mind. Some are cars quickly reconditioned in dealership shops to fill in slow periods when there's otherwise little work to be done. And many are just flat out junk. "A car that goes across the block at a public auction that isn't spewing smoke is often packed with thick racing oil to ensure it doesn't," Lang continues. "Everything at a public auction looks shiny, but shiny doesn't mean much about the quality of the car."
These programs are meant to benefit taxpayers as a whole, but could they benefit you, the individual taxpayer? Can you bag a bargain at a government auction? "GSA's goal is to maximize return to the federal government," the GSA spokesperson said. So they're not giving this stuff away. In fact, the government sets "reserves" or minimums for the most valuable property it auctions off. But judging from a wide tour of current government auctions and bids, there are still opportunities to walk away with valuable goods for a great price. Here's a look at who's selling what, where, and for how much.
