Where do Car Auctions Get Their Inventory?

Car Auction Tualatin

Whether you’re a used car dealer looking to fill in gaps in your lot, a tinkerer looking for a project car, or just want to see how car auctions work, Speed’s Auto Auction has what you’re looking for.

With new inventory every week, Speed’s has a lot to choose from. Our cars come from a variety of sources – police impounds, bank repossessions, charities, private owners, dealerships, car rental companies, and insurance companies.

Sometimes cars end up at auctions because they’ve suffered cosmetic damage, but the engine is in perfect shape. So, there’s a very good chance you’ll find a car in great condition at a lower price than what a private seller would ask.

Vehicle auctions are a great option for both buyers and sellers

If a car costs more to fix than it is worth, owners will opt to auction it instead of listing it for sale. The advantage is that the owner doesn’t have to deal with finicky buyers and is guaranteed some sort of payout. Most importantly, auctions open up a second chance for cars that are too much trouble to sell otherwise.

However, totaled vehicles are only a fraction of what Speed’s has in their inventory. Cars in all kinds of conditions become available either through our online auction or on-site near Tualatin. Bidders can find vehicles with only a few thousand miles on the odometer but, say, only some minor, repairable damage. On the other hand, bidders can find cars with high mileage, but the body is in pristine condition.

Speed’s offers bidders a chance to find used vehicles at a lower price than used car lots are willing to offer. However, there are some important factors to consider if you’ve never been to a car auction.

Common Online Car Auction Questions

What is an online car auction?
An online car auction is a platform where individuals or dealers can bid on vehicles that are being sold through an online auction. It is similar to traditional in-person car auctions, but all bidding and transactions take place online.
How can I participate in an online car auction?
To participate in an online car auction, you will first need to register for an account on the auction website. You will then be able to view the available vehicles, place bids, and monitor the status of your bids online. Some online car auctions may require a deposit or proof of funds before allowing you to bid.
What types of vehicles can I find at an online car auction?
You can find a wide variety of vehicles at online car auctions, including cars, trucks, SUVs, motorcycles, boats, and more. The vehicles available for auction may be new or used and may come from a variety of sources, such as repossessed vehicles, dealer trade-ins, or surplus government vehicles.
How do I know if the vehicle I am interested in is in good condition?
Most online car auctions provide detailed descriptions and photos of each vehicle, as well as information on its history, mileage, and condition. You may also have the option to inspect the vehicle in person or have a third-party inspection done before placing a bid.
What happens if I win a bid at an online car auction?
If you win a bid at an online car auction, you will be responsible for paying the winning bid amount, plus any additional fees or taxes, to the auction website. You will also be responsible for arranging for transportation or pickup of the vehicle. The specific terms and conditions of the auction will vary depending on the website and the auction itself, so be sure to read and understand all of the details before placing a bid.
