Buy A Cheap Government Surplus Vehicle From Auctions

Owning a vehicle is considered to be a status symbol for some people. This means no longer taking the cab or riding a bus that could save some time going in to the desired destination.

If the person doesn't have a budget to buy a new one, it will be a good idea then to just get a second hand vehicle. The government has a surplus of these vehicles that could be three or four years old that are well maintained and can be bought at a cheaper price.

Where can the person buy a government surplus vehicle? It depends where the individual lives. In each state, there are government facilities that handle auctions throughout the year.

These are announced a weeks in advance in the newspaper and in the Internet so interested buyers can review the vehicles in the compound which will help the person decide whether to bid on it or not.

Should the individual like it, an initial bid can be made and hopefully, this will be enough to win the vehicle. The winner can get the vehicle and drive it home after paying the amount. An additional amount will have to be shouldered by the new owner for sales tax.

The rules are very simple when it comes to buying a vehicle. The prospective buyer must be 18 years old and above, has a driver's license and does not have a relative or family member who is working for the government.

Registration to attend the auction is free so the only money that will be brought out is only when the person gets to win a vehicle in the auction. The individual can even bid for someone else as long as the friend's social security number or tax identification number as well as a letter from that person is presented.

People will be able to get a maintenance record as well as warranty for the government surplus vehicle. This doesn't happen in a public or police auction because the vehicles that are offered are sold on a "as is" basis. This means the individual will probably have to shell out some cash to do some repairs if these are necessary.

Even if government surplus vehicles are given in good condition, the individual will still have to bring it to the shop to change the oil and spark plugs from time to time. This is the only way to keep it running for a few more years before deciding to replace it with another one.
