There are amazing deals to be made when it comes to auto auctions in Detroit. You can save a substantial amount of money when bidding . . .
If you live in Detroit or the metro area, you've most likely heard a lot about government auto auctions and online car auctions. Your friends have told you that they've saved a ton of cash on these deals, and of course you're curious but a little nervous. Being the cautious and smart type that you are, you don't want to jump into a new situation without all the facts, and that's precisely where we come in.
It's very true that there are some amazing deals to be discovered when it comes to auto auctions in Detroit and the surround areas. You can save a substantial amount of money when bidding on a seized or abandoned car at auction rather than just going to a series of used car lots and always getting pressured by salesmen. There are however some pitfalls to look out for, and even outright scams that you need to be aware of. Beyond the more obvious ones like avoiding stolen cars, you'll also need to know how to avoid heavily damaged cars that have been repaired. And have you heard about all of the flooded cars from Hurricane Katrina that are still being auctioned around the country? Talk about hidden irreparable damage. We'll fill you in on those major pitfalls on the following pages full of info.
Many unsuspecting buyers go into auto auctions with the belief that there are laws to protect them as consumers. Though there are such laws, they typically do not do the job adequately. It is up to you to protect yourself. There's a reason that these auctions say "As Is," and if you have a bit more than the general knowledge when you're inspecting these cars, you can be sure that you aren't going to be stuck with a clunker!
