Police Impound Auctions
Police seized car auctions and impounded car sales can be a great place to find car bargains. The cars can range from junk vehicles abandoned by owners, to vehicles seized from lawbreakers, to surplus vehicles that have been replaced with newer vehicles. Vehicles of all types can be found at police auctions. Some are late-model luxury vehicles in perfect condition, some older models in not-so-great condition, some damaged or wrecked, and even motorcycles and RV’s.
How do I find police auctions?
There are a number of types of police agencies that hold vehicle auctions and sales all over the country. It can be city or county police, sheriff, or state law enforcement, even federal law enforcement agencies such as the DEA, or FBI.
These agencies typically advertise upcoming auctions in local newspapers. If there are a number of local newspapers, the announcements will only be in one of those papers, not all. The announcements are usually made on a specific schedule, such as once a month on a Friday, as an example.
Some auction announcements may provide a fairly detailed list of what will be sold on a particular day. Others are less detailed, or provide no detail at all.
Some police seized vehicle and impound auctions are held directly by the involved agency, while others are conducted by professional auction companies under contract by the agency.
