Police auctions can be a great place to purchase all sorts of items: jewelry, vehicles, electronics, and many other miscellaneous goods. These are most often confiscated items, old evidence, property turned in by the public, and unclaimed property.
4 reasons to shop at police auctions:
- Open to the public: Police auctions are held all over the country, and are open to the public. Many people seem to believe that you have to be invited; however, it’s actually quite simple to attend a police auction – it’s very similar to other auction types, such as auto auctions and real estate auctions.
- Variety of goods: No matter what you are looking to purchase, you can almost guarantee you’ll find it at a police auction. Items that are frequently sold include bicycles, vehicles, televisions, computers, phones, and many others.
- Great deals: When you go to police auctions with the intent to purchase, you can also go with the intent to get an awesome deal. Items sold through these auctions are typically marked way below market value and even though there is a healthy competition between buyers, you can still count on getting a steal (pun intended).
- Online options: Many auction companies, including Auction Systems, offer online auctions and/or online previews. This allows you to purchase items from the comfort of your own home, or at least preview items being sold at upcoming auctions. This will save you a lot of time and energy as you do your due diligence investigating items that you might purchase.
So no matter what you are looking for, a police auction might just be your one-stop shop.
