Finding a local police car auction in your area is sometimes tricky, if you have no idea where to start. There are ways to locate this information, but for areas where these type of auctions are not widely publicized it could be a case of calling your local police station and asking if they know.
Online Police Auction Information
You can find some information online, on government websites which will let you search your area for a particular vehicle. These sites are not limited to cars, either. You can find SUVs, trucks and motorcycles on many of them too. Doing a ZIP code search and choosing a specific model will show you all the vehicles within a certain distance from you. Police specific auctions can be found by other websites like gov-auctions, which tells you when and where the local auctions will take place.
The General Service Administration is the biggest national sales agency and you can check out fleet sale cars and trucks on their website. Online versions of the auction can be located through the GovSales website. Finding former police cars for sale is down to how often those local auctions are held, but you can also try eBay Motors. Government car auctions are there in the motors section for you to search through. You can search by ZIP code, type of car, miles from your destination or make and model of the car you require.
The local police will sometimes put up leaflets or notifications of an impending auction being held. You can call your local government offices and find out how else you can locate an auction and if they have no information, at least they may be able to point you in the right direction.
