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:


Private sources. In addition to these free government sites, you can use private sites. These sites provide information about federal and local government auctions. Gov-Auctions gives you access to both federal and state auctions. The sites charge a one-time fee of $39.00 for access to their information. Having all auctions on one site can be helpful. If you are launching a serious car search or buy auction cars on a frequent basis, paying to use this site might make financial sense
Complete Liquidation Auction By Order of Secured Creditor.  Public online auction will include: Hypertherm CNC Plasma Cutting System w/ Table, Scotchman Automatic Horizontal Bandsaw, Baxter Verticut Automatic Horizontal Bandsaw, Large Assortment Of Miller Welders, Pandjiris Welding Positioning Tables, Shop Equipment, Ingersoll Rand & Sullair Towable Air Compressors, Gooseneck Trailer, Ford Flatbed Truck, Airless Paint Sprayers, Power Tools, Welding Tables & Wire, Oster Pipe Threader, Power Rollers, Much More!!
Bidding. Get some information about the type of bidding that normally occurs at these auctions. Feel free to ask the consultant about the expected price of a particular vehicle. When the auction starts, raise your hand and registration number card high in the air so the auctioneer can see you. Bids can be in increments of $100, $250 or even $500. This will be up to the auctioneer's discretion. Before bidding, remember that once a bid is made it cannot be withdrawn. Once the bid is won then the bid cards must be immediately filled out and signed. If this is not done then the vehicle can be re-offered. The government can reject any bid

OLX is a Nigeria-based online auction site. With more than a thousand-active listing on the site and hundreds of members using the auction, OLX is one of Africa’s largest digital auction platforms. OLX sellers have the choice of either having an OLX expert sell their items for them for a small fee, or using the ‘sell it yourself’ platform, which is free to use.
We researched and compared the top seven online auction sites to find the best. We compared selling and listing fees, payment options, support features and the size of each site’s user base. After our research, we think that eBay is the best online auction site because it has over 160 million registered users. Though this site charges a higher final value fee than other sites we researched, it doesn’t charge for seller verification.
Selling police evidence and surplus computers and office equipment for Colorado Cities, Counties and Police Departments.

Surplus office equipment including: Computers, Printers, Office Copiers, Wood & Metal Desks, Bookcases, 2 & 4-Drawer File Cabinets, Lateral File Cabinets, Metal Shelving, Executive & Secretarial Chairs, Office Side Chairs, More!
Research: Even though you'll be able to see photos of whatever you're bidding on, check out other websites with something the same or very similar for sale. Comparing an object's makeup and condition makes it less likely you'll overpay for something. If you're bidding on something you know is in your area, try contacting the seller to ask for an in-person inspection or, at the very least, a video of the item from every angle.
U.S. Marshal's Service Auctions : And finally, the U.S. Marshal's service auctions off some true bling as part of its mission to "combat major criminal activity by disrupting and dismantling illegal enterprises" and "depriving criminals of the proceeds of illegal activity."

You can also sign up for a seller plus account which removes the final value fees, but is a paid account. Seller plus has weekly and monthly subscriptions, or you can pay $99 for lifetime access. This site has over 2 million registered users, which is significantly less than our top pick eBay. However, eBid is active all over the world. You can view how many people have looked at your listings and show your buyer feedback from past purchases so new customers can know that you are trustworthy. This auction site doesn’t offer as many payment methods as other sites we researched. You can accept payments through PPPay.com, PayPal or Skrill, and eBid does charge a transaction fee on all purchases.

oh wah, thank you for this. I was just about to buy from www.PoliceAuctions.com but I decided to do a little bit of research first. The Internet is full with negative feedback, tons of 1-stars for them. I stopped considering bidding when I saw a bunch of reviews like: "Garbage", "Policeauctions...fraud fraud fraud", "This site is fishy, not a real police auction!!!, “Total scam. Not police seized items. Made in China.”, etc. However, what really got me mad was that one of the reviewers said this: "I had several winning bids and all of a sudden the same peoples username was outbidding me this seems fishy too me. I think it's the site upping your price. I was upset and did not want to bid anymore. I kept getting outbid than when I logged in they would ask me if I wanted a deal on the item I bid on which was 15.00 than it was at 55.00 when I was out bid than they asked me if I wanted to buy this item for 120.00 this is not a fair auction and I'm glad I found this out before I wasted my hard earned money."

This is about auctions where the cars are the most ordinary of ordinary vehicles: Ford Crown Victorias coming off six years of patrol duty with the county sheriff's department. Toyota Tercels with so much mileage that their odometers have worn off the printed numerals. Plain sedans, base model pickups and early '90s Pontiac Firebirds confiscated in drug stings. Cars you can get cheap—maybe.
Technological advances have contributed to the rise and evolution of this part of the eCommerce marketplace. eBay, for example, has been quick to jump on the growing demand for Artificial Intelligence (AI), embedding AI technology, to help sellers become more competitive. eBay’s AI solutions involve identifying gaps in product inventories, alerting sellers when they need to stock up on a particular product. eBay’s evolving features have proven to be of benefit to sellers, creating some legitimate success stories. However, despite eBay being at the forefront of the increasingly competitive online auction market, online sellers should always consider alternative solutions.

We were in the process of downsizing when a friend attended a program by Mr. Will Farmer on appraising, auctions and today’s styles and trends. She relayed that our mid-century modern furniture was back in vogue. We were familiar with the Farmer name from Antiques Roadshow, but knew little about the auction business. We showed Will Farmer, now owner of the business, photographs of our furniture and he was interested. He came to our home, looked at the furniture, described the auction process and carefully reviewed the contract we would sign. From start to finish the entire process was very professional. The Salem, Virginia gallery is spacious and well organized with plenty of parking. The entire staff is very friendly and courteous. The movers were very nice and careful. We were kept informed at every step. We were given a possible range of prices each item might bring, but no promises were made. Auction day was fascinating and fun. Some items brought more than expected and some less. In the end it was a wonderful experience and one we would not hesitate to do again.

Online auctions offer buyers and sellers of a wide variety of goods an enormous platform for trade. They offer buyers a virtual flea market, with an endless range of merchandise from around the world, and they give sellers a storefront from which to market everything from sports memorabilia to computer systems to millions of international buyers. It includes national retailers auctioning off excess inventory or services. But how do online auctions work?

You could tell that most people knew each other. It felt like these few dozen bidders were part of an exclusive network of junkyard owners and flip-artists who have been bidding on cars against each other for years. Every now and then, when one guy outbid another, you’d see the losing bidder lean over to a friend and talk shit on the winner. “He just buys cars for the sake of buying them. He probably makes no money,” I heard one guy whisper. Police auctions are full of mysteries and secrets.

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

"As our police business has grown, we've been approached by other liquidators," Bellomo said. "This downturn has put 3,000 brick-and-mortar retail stores out of business. There is distressed merchandise all over the United States. Brand-new jewelry and watches, authentic sports memorabilia, fine art. Liquidators are coming to us and saying, 'Can you work with us the way you work with police agencies. Can you turn this excess inventory into cash?'
3. There's intense pressure in government auctions. If you happen to see an auction either in television or in reality, you know that it's going to be truly fast pace. You have to think quick and efficiently. If you aren't ready with this type of environment, have someone who can do the bidding for you. Otherwise, you have to start looking for a used car dealer.
