There are auction homes where you can go and bid for the important things of your taste. The auction homes have a calendar holding the sale on a specific style. You have to send information such as name, address, phone number and banking or credit info as is defined by the salesroom where you are going to bid. A special number, referred to as the Customer Number, is going to be allocated to you. A paddle is a plastic card bearing a number that is signed up at the auction. The paddle is raised to bid and the auctioneer calls out the paddle variety of the effective bidder at the time of offering each lot. When the gavel falls the auctioneer reveals the hammer rate. The hammer cost is the last quote rate, which does not consist of a purchaser’s premium. The purchaser’s premium is the cash that is paid independently by the purchaser to the auction house. It is a portion of the last quote rate.
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.
It is the policy of the Longmont Police Department to allow a finder of property to claim found property. Every attempt will be made to locate the rightful owner. However a finder may claim found property, which will be available 60 days after the advertised date. The finder must make the request in writing. Employees of the City of Longmont cannot claim found property. If you have any questions, please email Property/Evidence Section.
Finding a great deal on a vehicle is straightforward when attending a seized-car auction. You can get many of the vehicles up for auction at a greatly reduced price, making seized-car auctions worth your while when looking for a vehicle. Before bidding, have the vehicle you are interested in inspected by an experienced mechanic to ensure that it doesn't have any hidden problems.
Items available may vary from auction to auction and day to day but miscellaneous items usually include used vehicles, heavy equipment, office furniture, computer equipment, electronics, communication equipment, jewelry, bicycles, sports equipment, lawn maintenance equipment, office machines, tools and luggage.
