Great Bargains at Auto Auctions in Florida!

2007 Chevrolet MalibuWe all know that the public transportation in Florida isn’t something that people boast about. The heat and the terrible downfall of rain means that people need to get where they want to go in a reasonably quick time. To do so, most Floridians travel by auto. No matter if it’s Key West or Miami, people all over the state are rolling down their windows or blasting the chilly air conditioning to cool down for the time being. If you thought that you could never afford a vehicle during these rough economic times, you are definitely in the wrong mind state. Anyone can save up a little cash, head down to a local government auto auction, and come home with a vehicle that meets your needs.

Government auctions have been getting very popular in the last couple years. At a fraction of the retail price, you can own fantastic items like foreclosed homes, gold jewelry, and even high-end vehicles. With government seized autos, these assets are confiscated by a government entity and then placed up for auction in the original condition they’re in. This could bode well for a large range of people out in Florida. Some people might be looking for muscle cars with low mileage, while others are basically looking for anything with four wheels that can take them to work and back. There is an array of cars out there, and if you look hard enough, you will find the right one that fits your criteria.

Finding one of these government auto auctions can be annoying if you are manually going to call each county clerk one by one. If you check an aggregator for auction information, you will be more likely to find the vehicle you desire. The rules of these types of auctions are fairly simple. You are given a certain period of time to inspect these assets (you cannot drive the car), then when the auction begins, you are allowed to bid on it, and if you are the highest bidder, you will own that car. Every country either has some sort of online or live auto auction that you can attend. Typically, they are run either once a week or once a month—you can find out that info very easily.

Florida has hundreds of auctions going on throughout every month. Lets take Orlando for example. In this large city, there are dozens and dozens of auctions running all day. You simply need to find out which specific county has their auctions and where they are located. Every county is going to have specific rules and regulations for registration, bidding, and payment methods. You need to have that stuff all figured out before you head down to the auction and start bidding. You don’t want to end up shouting out your bid when it’s a silent auction with paddles. And you certainly don’t want to come there with a credit card when they only accept cash or money orders for payments. These auctions can be fast paced and very exciting.
