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  The Federal Government has no need for supposedly outdated vehicles like older Humvees, boats, aircraft, and motorcycles (with sidecars).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.
