Been trying to research and purchase a new car recently. A decent running and affordable used auto in fact. The problem with researching is, where do you start? Or to put it another way, the best place to start your hunting. For me, whichever way I started (well, the first two ways), it was tedious and somewhat time-consuming work. Obviously one may suggest the best place to start your hunt for a used auto, would be the Internet. And what do I do, there I go to my local car dealers to look for the best possible deals. Ok, you also have your local newspaper ads, but that's another story. Anyway, after briefly visiting a handful of my local car dealers, it suddenly hit me in a funny way. I thought, you have all these used auto dealers up and down the country, they must buy their stock (autos) somewhere locally for sure. Also, these warehouses or whatever they are called (auctions I think), must also sell to the individual buyer- especially in tough economic times. So then, what I should have done in the first place- strut off home and being my search yet again, but this time on the internet. I open my favourite search engine and type in the first thing that popped into my head, Online Auto Auctions
. And right there, wham, within a few seconds or so, I find a search result which basically gives information on how to find Public Auto Auctions
within your local area. So now I knew where all my local used auto dealers- in fact car dealers up and down the country- were buying their stock from. Easy once you know how. Anyway, after reading some more I discovered that many of these autos were exactly what I was looking for. In other words, not more than 1-3 years old, full history available, and so on. What this site basically does, is it details all State Auto Auctions
anywhere in the US. Despite what you may believe or what your local car dealer may tell you, the vast majority of these auto auction houses, do actually sell to and encourage the individual car buyer.
