Buying cars at the GSA auto auction can be a rewarding experience if you are successful in your purchase. If you don’t have a clean, transferable title, the car is useless no matter how little you paid for it. This is especially critical with online auctions conducted at a distance. Details and photos of GSA vehicles are available prior to the sale on our web site or at Inspection of the vehicles is encouraged and welcomed two days prior to the sale from 8:00 AM until 5:00 PM. Banks and lending institutions also repossess property and automobiles from non-paying customers, and sell the goods through public auctions (see Repo Car Auctions ). In most cases (excepting rare, antique/classic, and special interest vehicle auctions) the winning bidder will pay less for a given make/model of vehicle than he would to acquire a similar vehicle at a used car lot.
Employees (or their agents) of all other Commonwealth agencies and members of their immediate families are prohibited from purchasing vehicles at Commonwealth used vehicle auctions that were assigned to, or surplused by, their employing agency if the sale price exceeds $100.00.
This was the first of two inaugural sales for the Dealer’s Auto Auction family of auctions, with the second GSA event held Thursday, August 23 at their facility in Mobile, Ala.

GSA would like to say thank you to all of the fantastic customers who have attended our public warehouse sales events over the years – we hope to see you next Thursday!! As Ive posted in the past, Ive been attending auctions for over 20 years now (yes since I was a small child). Many government auctions have a preview date before the auction where you can ask questions and inspect vehicles. The U.S. Government is not responsible for collection of state and/or local use taxes. It is also highly suggested to start the engine and rev it up. However, a test drive outside of the GSA auction site is not possible.
