Ex Police Vehicles One of the auction sources we include in our guide holds two auctions per month that feature ex police and other emergency service vehicles. Your first thoughts may be that these vehicles have had a hard life, however it’s important to remember that whilst they have been used regularly, they have also been taken very good care of. They will have been serviced often and any damage or problems will usually have been taken care of promptly. How often have you seen a broken-down police car at the side of the road? Other Bargains Its often a good idea to look out for cars from main dealers that have been taken in part exchange. This is because the cars are there to make room on the forecourts and are often not being sold simply to make a profit.
Going to a car auction is a great way to pick up a bargain motor. There are lots of auctions all over the UK and if you’re not sure what you’re after then you should go to a few to see what’s available.
More About Car Auctions
Arrive at the auction early to give yourself plenty of time to look around the vehicles. There should be an information sheet available that tells you about the car you are interested in. You should take particular note of how many owners the car has had as well as the mileage. Don’t be put off if you see a lot of other people interested in the car - after all, whilst it is true that only one person can buy the car, why shouldn’t that one person be you?
Arriving at the Auction
Most cars will be auctioned in one of two ways. The first is “as seen” which means that you buy the car exactly as you see it - pretty obvious! You should inspect the car closely, checking for any damage such as large scratches or cracks in the windscreen. Also check the tyres as these can be expensive to replace. The second type of sale is “sold with trial”. Depending on the auction, the meaning of this can differ, but essentially it means that the buyer would be allowed say one hour after the end of the auction to return the car with any major mechanical defects, for example engine problems.
Types of Sales
Once you’ve done all the initial checking, you should attend the auction. Remember, once bidding starts, it’s easy to get carried away - don’t be tempted to bid more than you can afford. You can normally hear the engine start around the time of the auction, which is useful to identify whether the car starts from cold with no problems. If all goes well, buying at auction should be a very quick and exciting way to bag your new car - and hopefully at a bargain price!
