But that doesn’t mean there still aren’t good deals to be had at local auctions, because as intimidating as it may sound, there’s a reason dedicated bidders still show up to these things every week. You just have to remain skeptical and attentive if you want to take home the right ride, because you never know what might show up, and by using these 10 tips, you might land a gem.


Going, going, gone! Live auctions are always exciting and entertaining whether you're the bidder or not, and government auctions are no exception. Make sure you don't miss your cue to bid. If you're not clear on how bidding progresses, ask one of the auction company officials. Some items will have an undisclosed set minimum bid (reserve), while most items will be offered without reserve. Most auctions will also accept in-absence, written bids if the bidder follows special procedures and the bid is received more than a day before the auction.

If you want to buy goods at or below cost, look no further than the U.S. government. Federal and state agencies sell nearly anything you can think of: cars, boats, jewelry, antiques, artwork, aircraft, real estate, houses, clothing, electronics, tools, furniture and medical equipment. The government sells surplus merchandise it no longer needs and items it obtains when it seizes property from criminals or forecloses on homes.


The goods you buy from government auctions are “as is.” Look on the “Terms and Conditions” page before bidding to understand the process. A typical auction page states, for example, that the auction site doesn’t guarantee the quality of the product in any way. Once you bid, you enter a legally binding contract, and you need to follow through with your bid.
Capital Auto Auction hosts weekly live auctions at each of our four locations, as well as online. Whether you attend a live auto auction or an online auto auction, you'll find quality used vehicles listed at the kind of bargain prices that typically only dealers see. Our vehicles may be repossessions, dealer consignments, government vehicles or donations. In every case, they are auctioned openly to the public so it's easy for customers to find or sell the vehicles they need. What's more, it's not just individual cars that we work with, either; through a fleet auto auction, you have a way to quickly dispose of fleet vehicles you no longer need.

The 18 City of Los Angeles Official Police Garages (OPGs) hold Lien Sales Auctions. The auctions are open to the public. All vehicles are sold "AS IS, WHERE IS" and with all faults.

The auctioneer reserves the right to reject any bid or stop the sale of a vehicle. In the event of a dispute, the auctioneer's decision will be final.

The auction marketplace serves both buyers and sellers, offering equally valuable, yet fundamentally different benefits to both audiences. To sellers, the auction marketplaces offers a fast, efficient way to convert physical property into immediate cash. For buyers, auctions offer the ability to get a variety of high-quality, sometimes rare goods for pennies on the dollar. Both groups benefit from expert appraisals, widespread marketing of new auctions, and the satisfaction of engaging in an environmentally-friendly way to reduce and reuse.
Age and nationality requirements. A bidding individual must be at least 18 years old to participate in government car sales. Unlike private auctions, which sometimes require a license to bid, a government car auction is generally open to the public. No special license is needed. However, in order to transact business with the federal government, a social security number or tax identification number is needed. If purchasing the vehicle for a company, then a Power of Attorney certificate is required
On February 17th, 2009 this 1991 Formula model 311 boat will be going up for live auction. Hull # TNRD1531F091. This boat is a 31 foot pleasure craft that is in excellent condition both inside and out. It's powered by two Chevrolet 454 cubic inch engines. Not only is this boat extremely fast but it looks absolutely fantastic. Also included in the sale is a 6 wheel trailer for easy portability. Want to learn more about this upcoming seized boat auction taking place in Everett, WA? All you have to do is register with us right now and you can! You'd better hurry though because this deal won't be around for much longer.

It is important to have realistic expectations when attending a government car auction. While you can find some good bargains, you are not going to find a brand new BMW for $100.00. Government auctions sell both fleet cars and vehicles that have been impounded by government agencies. The conditions of these vehicles can range from great to not running. Set your expectations and budget realistically.
Next up is this very sporty 1984 Viking Convertible Sportfisherman vessel. This 41 foot vessel has a 4 foot draft; 14 foot beam; 6 cylinder 300 HP Twin Detroit Diesel engine, model 6/71; 3 bronze bladed propellers; a Westerbeke 8.08TDA generator, S/N:97196F406 and a whole lot more. Hull ID: VKY41720M84A. The boat looks and runs great but does have two small problems. The A/C and spreader lights do need some minor fixing, but that's about it. All in all this is a fantastic deal at an exceptional price so if you'd like to learn more about this upcoming auction deal simply register with us right now. This isn't the only vessel to be auctioned off there either and they've got an enormous selection of other boats.

We pick-up all those seized, stolen, abandoned and surplus goods out of their Property Room, open up their public auctions nationwide and send back proceeds to the local communities. That’s also where we got our name – the Property & Evidence Room is where all these goods are stored at your local law enforcement agencies. We just shortened it to just PropertyRoom.com.
These programs are meant to benefit taxpayers as a whole, but could they benefit you, the individual taxpayer? Can you bag a bargain at a government auction? "GSA's goal is to maximize return to the federal government," the GSA spokesperson said. So they're not giving this stuff away. In fact, the government sets "reserves" or minimums for the most valuable property it auctions off. But judging from a wide tour of current government auctions and bids, there are still opportunities to walk away with valuable goods for a great price. Here's a look at who's selling what, where, and for how much.

If nobody claims the truck, then the GSA auctions it off to the public, and you get your chance at it.
