Federal Government Vehicle Auctions

Have you ever dreamed of owning a bulletproof secret service car?  What about a military Humvee?  How about a motorcycle (sidecar included)?  Yes, you can actually do that so long as you use some creativity.  The Federal Government has no need for supposedly outdated vehicles like older Humvees, boats, aircraft, and motorcycles (with sidecars).  In fact, fighter jets from the 1960s are being re-purposed to set the new land-speed record.  With new technologies, and the ever-evolving landscape of politics, war and tax collection, vehicles, are sent out to pasture at Federal Government vehicle auctions.  This is where you can find yourself a great deal, or two, on Federal Government vehicles that you can use in everyday life.

Federal Government vehicle auctions come about for a variety of reasons.  More often than not, it is a result of the Federal Government updating its vehicular fleets.  The Federal Government regularly updates its fleets of vehicles to cope with the ever-changing landscapes presented.  For example, the current move towards green technology means that older and less-efficient vehicles are being removed from public service – resulting in excess vehicles.  This means that you could have a chance to purchase a like new car for much cheaper than the sticker price, potentially saving thousands of dollars.  Lets say that you already own a well-functioning car, and have no need for a car – your farm on the other hand needs some new vehicles.  Fear not, Federal Government vehicle auctions also have tractors, plows seeders, and other farming related vehicles.  And that is not even close to half the amount of items available for auction.  When you consider the sheer size of the federal government and all of the agencies underneath its umbrella, you can see the large amount of possibilities.  Say you run a factory and are in need of a vehicle that can transport you from one end to the other, and is quicker than walking, you may be able to find yourself a small motorcycle, all-terrain vehicle, or possibly a moped.  Say you like fishing, but don’t want to have to constantly bum rides from friends to go fishing, just head on over to a federal government vehicle auction, and you will probably find yourself a nice, swift boat to go fishing with.

The sheer amount of vehicles available for auction when the Federal Government holds a vehicle auction is hard to imagine.  Just think of it this way.  The Federal Government has a presence in the air, sea and land.  For each of those places, they need vehicles.  Included in those vehicles are support vehicles that help to handle communications, transport and distribute supplies in times of emergency; vehicles that handle transport of dignitaries, criminals, and employees.  That pushes the amount of vehicles available at auction into the hundreds and perhaps even the thousands (depending on the type of auction, and which branches are involved).  But before you decide to commit money to a Federal Government vehicle auction you should check and make sure that you can bid for the items at a Federal Government vehicle auction, because some of them are limited due to the sensitive nature of the Federal Government vehicle, and hardware in the vehicle.

Now you asking yourself, how you can get in on the action?  We all want Federal Government vehicles, and we definitely don’t want to overpay the resellers or parts dealers who are usually buying inventory at these auctions.  We want well-priced vehicles, and we don’t want to stay up late watching TV – waiting for a sketchy infomercial to come on and tell you that you can own a brand new car for pennies on the dollar (highly unlikely).  We don’t want to spend hours looking through newspapers, and local shopping guides.  We want it to be simple, safe, easy and most importantly, we want to be able to search quickly.  So save yourself some time and activate your free trial here.  Then search through the thousands of listings, to find what you are looking for…you know that Humvee that you like so much.  Then with some shrewd bidding, you may just end up owning a Humvee.

Online Auto Auctions

Buying a car nowadays requires a lot of effort.  First you have to do all the research on the car.  And once you have done your research you then have to head down to the dealership to find out how much the car will cost you.  You can end up spending weeks traveling to and from all the dealerships in your area – trying to find a deal that best suits you.  Yet you end up spending more than you want on a car that you don’t love.  Not to mention the amount of time you inevitably have to take off from work and making money.  Going to online auto auctions saves you time and money.

Online auto auctions can be a hazardous adventure for the under-researched – you know, the people who see a deal on a 67’ Mustang, put down $5,000 (thinking it was a steal) only to realize that the car has been in four major accidents, and was just recently fished out of a lake.  Hence the need for research.  With the volume of online auto auctions, taking the time to find the reputable cars available would be a good idea.  Remember, there are literally tens of thousands of cars available.  The vast majority does come from legitimate places such as from the government (federal, state, and local).  And more likely than not, you will end up at some form of a government online auto auction.  There you will find cars ranging from the mundane to the outrageous amphibious military vehicle.  Of course you would be wise to find out the vehicle’s history.  More likely than not, that means obtaining the Vehicle Identification Number (If the car has had major work, then make sure that you get the Vehicle Identification Number for any replacement parts, such as the engine and transmission), and using it to get a vehicle history report.  Once you have that vehicle history report, you can make an educated decision on how much you are willing to bid.  The best decision you can make is to stick to that number.  Remember, you will more likely than not be able to find a similar car, for the price that you set.

So, how do you go about finding a reputable online auto auction.  There are many auction sites out there, and many do a good job verifying the sellers, but you can’t always be certain of the source.  Finding these online auto auctions requires careful searching, and knowledge of how online auto auctions run.  And unlike auction houses, there aren’t always verifiable sources.  You can try your luck with a search engine, but you can never be absolutely certain that you aren’t being taken advantage of.  Activate your free trial here, find reputable Government Auctions, and make your life much simpler and easier.  Remember to be smart and do your research.  Once you have, you should be good to go, and should have no trouble succeeding at finding yourself a nice car with online auto auctions.

Police Auto Auctions

Those annoying police sirens at 2am aren’t always a bad thing.  Once in a while, it is the police seizing cars – cars that will end up at their next auto auction.  Police auto auctions are an interesting auction, because they can potentially involve hundreds of varying types of vehicles.  In the past few months, the police of a small municipality auctioned off a motorized recliner, after owner was spotted driving it while drunk.  Your chances of being able to buy a similar item at a police auto auction is probably very slim (read 1 in about 100 million), however, you can end up with a pretty nice used car.  At police auto auctions, the police are usually only seeking to recoup their expenses, which can potentially mean a steal of a deal for you.

Police auto auctions are filled with not only seized cars (both from criminals and from people who failed to pay parking tickets), but surplus police cars, and unclaimed stolen cars.  That means that there is a potential gold mine of cars just waiting for a new owner to come along and purchase them.  With the sheer amount of cars available for auction you are sure to find yourself the car you want at a police auto auction.  But before you head over to police auto auctions, it would be a good idea to do your research.  Much like you would before buying a new car, you should check out the type of car you want, and make sure it suits your need.  After all, you wouldn’t want to settle on a car your just don’t like.  And once you have chosen the type of car you want, you should do your research on the cars being auctioned.  Have they been in an accident, set on fire, been flooded, or are they in perfect condition?  All of this information can be obtained in a vehicle history report, which is why it would be a good idea to look up this information and know what you are getting yourself into.  You should also have a good idea of how much money you plan on spending at auction.  Going in to a police auto auction without having a ceiling, can leave you vulnerable and may leave you in the position of paying too much for a car you don’t really like.  So hold to your strategy and you will be in good shape for the auction.

All of this information is worthless, unless you know where to find police auto auctions.  You could have your car seized by the police, and chances are you would be able to track it through the system and find out where to purchase the car auction.  You could also look in your local newspapers, and even look online, but chances are you will end up spending hours looking for all of this information – making it more of a hassle than going to a used car dealership.  The best way to search is to go to www.GovernmentAuctions.org where you can activate your FREE three-day trial.  Once there, you can search for auctions across the country, and find the car of your dreams.
