Look To The Internet For A Seized Car Auction

images-10.jpgIf you’re thinking of buying a cheap car that is older, you might want to try Car-Auction.com.  This is an auction site on the Internet for cars that have been seized.  Buying a vehicle from this website can save you up to 90% off of the retail price of a car.  Here are some important things that you should know before making a purchase on an auction site for seized cars.

First, make sure to do research to ensure that you’re actually going to get a fair deal.  This is necessary because you are going to buy the car ‘as is’.  Also, know that seized car auction websites don’t offer used car warranties, so make sure to purchase one somewhere else.  This will allow you peace of mind about your purchase.

Also, choose a car that has its paperwork included.  This will allow you to check the repair record of the car, safety ranking, as well as mileage, before you make the purchase. To find this information, look online or at consumer magazines.

If at all possible, test-drive the car first.  This is the only way to get a true feel for how the vehicle runs.  This will also give you an idea of what repairs, if any, may need to be made.  This will give you valuable information when it comes time to negotiate.

Finally, don’t buy a car without an inspection.  A mechanic who is licensed will give you information about the car that you couldn’t detect when you did the test-drive.

Purchasing a car from a seized auction website can save you a great deal of money.  However, be cautious.  Also, buy an auto warranty and roadside assistance to protect your wallet.  After all, you can’t always foresee when repairs will be needed.
