If you want to seriously bid at an auto auction, keep in mind the following tips.

    1. Many auctions have run lists of all the vehicles that will be on the auction block. Make sure to read through the list a day or two before the auto auction so you can begin to research the cars that interest you.

    2. Don’t arrive at the motor auction minutes before it starts; get there early enough to inspect the cars you like and ask any questions you may have. If possible, read the vehicle’s history report.

    3. Lastly, make sure to set a bidding limit for yourself. Determine what the auction auto is worth to you before the auction begins and stick to your limits.

Following these tips will help make your trip a success. With a little luck and a few smart bids, you may drive home a new set of wheels! We hope to see you at an upcoming BSC America Auction; contact us to register today.
