How to Find a Deal at Car Auctions


Are you in the market for a new vehicle, but are on a limited budget that prevents you from doing business with just any car dealer? If this describes you, car auctions are something that you should get to know.

These amazing auctions are open to the public and enable you to find a great used car at an even better price. By using online sites like eBay or even MadBid auctions, it is possible to find almost any type of vehicle in one of these auctions, with the potential to save thousands of dollars on the purchase.

Find an Auto Auction

The first step in enjoying the benefit of an affordable vehicle from a car auction is to find a public auction available to you! With the web this is certainly an easy task, as you need to do nothing more than enter ‘auto auctions’ into your favorite search engine and allow the fun to begin.

With car auctions found scattered throughout the U.S., there is certainly one located next to you. Be sure that you check the dates and times of auctions with each of the lots that you are interested in. Most hold auctions only on certain days and times of the week.

Do keep in mind that most of the time these auctions are not advertised publically, so it is up to you to learn of their locations, dates and times if you are serious about getting an unbelievable deal on an amazing car. It is safe to say that you can find an auto auction in most all major US cities, and sometimes more than one!

Buying a Car

Public auto auctions enable anyone to come out to the auction and place a bid on a pre-owned vehicle. These vehicles have been seized for a variety of reasons, but regardless of that reason they are certainly there to offer you an absolutely amazing deal.

You will find cars old and new, those that run like brand new and those best suited for parts. You will have time to check the vehicle out before the auction, and it is certainly in your best interest to do this.

From Chevy’s and Ford’s to Audi and BMW and every brand in between, auto auctions provide you with an endless amount of choices in both brands and makes.

Many auto auctions have newer, very desirable models of cars selling at costs sometimes 90% less than what they can be found at a dealership or even a used auto lot. Could you imagine paying $1000 for a car with a value of $10,500? Deals such as this are typical of a car auction.

Making the Most of the Auction

When you’ve got it in the agenda to attend an auto auction, make sure that you are prepared for that event. There is certainly going to be many others in attendance of the auction, and you need to be ready and well prepared if you plan to bring home a car.

You need to get a list of the vehicles that will be sold at the car auction and look at the value of the car before you go.

Car auctions are wonderful for men and women all around the United States. When it is a fabulous deal that you are searching for, ensure that you make your way to one of these fabulous auto auctions without delay. The reward of a fabulous car is waiting for you!

3 Useful Household Hacks

1. How to unclog a drain without a plunger

In the absence of a plunger, or in case you simply can’t use a plunger depending on situations, a clogged drain can be a lot of trouble. However, it can be easily unclogged without this tool. All you have to do is simply add 1/2 cup of baking powder on the drain, and wash it down with 1/2 cup of vinegar. Let it work for a few minutes, then wash it down with a fair amount of hot water. Pipes should unclog.

2. How to remove stickers or rubber band from something without leaving a sticky trace

In case you have stickers on your fridge, on your car, computer or any other surface of object that you’d want to have sticker-free, it’s much easier to remove them if you use a hair dryer. The stickers, rubber band, label etc, should come off much easier, without breaking. Just in case there’s glue residue remaining on the surface, just use a piece of cloth imbibed in a bit of warm water and detergent, to rub it off.

3. How to lubricate a door lock without grease

Although greasing the metallic components in a mechanism such a door or window lock may seem adequate, grease can leak and stain the door material, or accumulate dust and actually clog the mechanism. Therefore, you can use the graphite from a pencil for it. Simply remove the graphite from a pencil, ground it into a fine powder, put it into a straw, apply the straw on the key hole of the lock, and blow the graphite into the lock.
