Many types of vehicles are available at auto auctions. And come in a variety of conditions
Types of Vehicles at Auctions
- Off lease – vehicles returned at the end of a lease term
- Off rental – rental companies replace their fleet of cars once a year. They rely on auctions to unload their used inventory.
- Company or Fleet Cars – Fleet cars get replaced everyone to two years. Similar to rental cars, used inventory is often sold at auctions.
- Reposessions – auto auctions are the most common way to unload repossed cars.
- Trade-Ins – A trade in that does not meet the needs of a dealership are often sold at auctions.
- Salvage – Vehicles damaged from accidents, floods, fires or theft purchased by insurance companies. They are then sold at auction to auto recyclers or to body shops who will fix them and resell them.
Before scheduling auction vehicle transport, the carrier needs to know the condition of the vehicle. This is extremely important.
The carrier must ensure the appropriate equipment is available to load and unload the car. It also determines the type of transport needed. It also effects the shipping rate.
The broker will also want to make sure they send a driver with experience to load the vehicle correctly.
An operable vehicle, such as a remarket or previously owned used car, is the easiest and least expensive to transport.
Inoperable vehicles are more challenging. A vehicle may not have keys to operate it, but it can roll and steer. Then a trailer with a winch attached to the trailer is needed. Loading these cars is fairly straightforward.
An inoperable vehicle with collision damage requires a forklift at pickup and delivery.
Relocating very damaged or bulky vehicles might need a flatbed trailer.
Equipment for non-running vehicles is harder to find. It is more expensive to move a car from an auction if necessary equipment is not available. The carrier must be prepared.
Using a auto transport company that is both carrier and broker ensures you have the right hauler for your vehicle.
