Capital Auto Auction hosts weekly live auctions at each of our four locations, as well as online. Whether you attend a live auto auction or an online auto auction, you'll find quality used vehicles listed at the kind of bargain prices that typically only dealers see. Our vehicles may be repossessions, dealer consignments, government vehicles or donations. In every case, they are auctioned openly to the public so it's easy for customers to find or sell the vehicles they need. What's more, it's not just individual cars that we work with, either; through a fleet auto auction, you have a way to quickly dispose of fleet vehicles you no longer need.

The Capital Equipment Sales team is based in Abbey Wood Bristol and their primary role is to undertake the sale of surplus capital assets on a ‘government to government’ (G2G) basis maximising the financial return to the Crown, but also supports wider defence and national diplomatic efforts. They have an active role in supporting G2G sales and providing technical support to customer governments. This also includes future spares support and, subject to availability, CES’s Post-Sales Support team may assist these governments and other customers that continue to operate ex-MOD equipment through the provision of spares on repayment terms. 

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.
