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.
State of Alaska Policy on Employee Purchase of Surplus Supplies. 2AAC 12.600 which states “An employee, contractor, or grantee of an agency that owns or disposes of surplus supplies may not directly or indirectly purchase or agree with another person to purchase surplus supplies if the employee, contractor or grantee is, or has been, directly or indirectly involved in the disposal, maintenance or preparation for sale of the surplus supplies.”

Every day the government, banks and various organizations take possession of seized cars, trucks, vans, motorcycles, campers and more. The volume of these seized properties is so high that a fast and constant way to empty their inventories is in place. To do this auctions are held nationwide that empty inventories at discounted prices. Vehicles with prices up to 90% under blue book value are auctioned off every day.

State Equipment Fleet Conflict of Interest. It is the policy of the State of Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities that State of Alaska employees directly involved with the decision to surplus or excess equipment are restricted from bidding on, or otherwise purchasing vehicles or equipment under SEF management control. This restriction applies to the State employee, and immediate family, as defined in AS 39.52 (Code of Ethics).
Law enforcement confiscates a large number of cars, mainly from people who committed traffic offenses and other driving related crimes like driving under influence (DUI). The first thing to do is to call the local police department and ask whether they have any impounded cars. Usually, many of these cars are located at towing yards. Prospective buyer should be aware that many of the cars here have not been maintained properly. Don't be surprised to see cars that have been stored there for many years. You may need to travel to many towing sites before you find a car that is suitable for your needs.

You might not know it but in addition to all the cars and trucks constantly being sold at various government auctions one may also find trucks and vans of a more industrial nature. Take this 1998 International Garbage truck for example. It's in very good condition and recently underwent maintenance before it was placed on the auction block. VIN 1HTSCAAR8WH521516. The best thing about this auction so far, aside from the current bidding price of $6,000, is the fact that it runs as smooth as butter. Auction ends in approx. 2 days.
Payment methods. A government auction accepts many modes of payment from credit cards or bank checks to cash. It is recommended to ask the auctioneer about the modes of payment involved before the auction starts. Besides the bidding price of the car, an additional buyer's premium fee is added onto the total. This fee is normally 5 percent of the winning bid
Additional government sites. There are a few additional sites that can provide tips on government auctions. Guide to Federal Auctions gives a rundown of the various agencies. It provides information about what they sell as well as the departments' websites. GSA supplies information about auction sources. Auctions can be searched by state or auction house

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.

I returned home wishing I had never gone to this auction, because as someone trying to get over his junky-vehicle hoarding tendencies, I’m not strong enough to handle this kind of temptation. Sure, many of these cars were junk, but they were dirt cheap. And since most were impounded for some sort of driving infraction, there’s a decent chance they move under their own power.
Storage auctions occur at many storage facilities, although they may happen only once or twice a year at some facilities. At a storage auction, you bid on contents within a storage unit based on what you can see from the entrance to the unit, so you may not know exactly what you are bidding on. Check local classified listings or call local storage facilities to ask the date and time of the next auction. Ask a representative days in advance about rules and details for the auction, such as arriving ahead of time to sign in. Some storage auctions are heavily attended, so the competition may be intense.
Government auctions, held by a local school district, police department, city hall or county administrations, occur when a government entity has surplus, unwanted or unneeded items. Everything from office furniture to overhead projectors and unclaimed bicycles may be found at government auctions. In some locales, auctions are held once or twice a year, while some organizations may hold auctions more frequently. Scan your local free weekly newspaper for news of upcoming government auctions, or look at the bulletin boards in local government buildings where public information is posted. Police auctions sometimes include vehicles and luxury items seized during arrests; these auctions are often advertised in local newspapers or by searching online for local government or police auctions.
