Useful Tips

Many car auctions will be specific to the origins of the car. For example one auction might be entirely part exchange stock whilst another might be repossessed cars being auctioned on behalf of one or more finance companies. These are often the best auctions because with more and more people falling behind with repayments, finance companies like to get rid of the cars very quickly and as a result they go very cheaply.

Its also worth bearing in mind that more and more car auctions are taking place online. For that reason you might like to look in more than just one region as you might find a better bargain for a particular car that you're after. The best advice is to check out the online catalogues for as many car auctions as possible.
