In some communities, auction houses host their own auctions on a regular basis, such as once a month or bi-weekly. Items at these auctions may be specialized, such as a toy auction, or include more general merchandise such as household belongings or antiques. Typically, an auction house allows you to look at and pick up items being offered before the auction begins. Visit the auction house's website or scan local auction listings in a local newspaper or online classified-ads site. Calling the auction house or auctioneer is another way to find out about upcoming public auctions run by the auction house or auctioneer.

Local police auctions. If you are interested in local police impound car auctions the best way to find information is to call your local police department. They can provide with the dates and details. Under no circumstances should you call 911 for this information. Look in the local blue pages for the non-emergency number. They are also required to run ads in the local newspaper about 90 days prior to the auction. These are often low key ads in the classified section, so finding them may require some searching. Some police departments put auction information online, so you can also search the Internet
