Public Tow Auctions and Police Impound Car Auctions in California

tow auctions

We want to help you buy used cars and trucks at auctions without overpaying. That is why Auto Auctions California suggests you should consider going where a lot of the car dealers go to get their cars: auto auctions. With auctions all around California, there are likely several in your area that are open to the public.

These are great places to find deals on bank repos and police impounds. These impounded cars for sale are often priced low so that they will sell quickly before more impounds accumulate on the tow lot.

Remember: We like to remind our customers that these types of auto auctions can be more risky and require more knowledge and experience with vehicles and vehicle repair.

Below are the locations and contact information for police and tow auctions in California that we can suggest to you. These are all open to the public and most do not require any membership so it is free to attend the auction and look at the inventory.

Tow auctions have a wide variety of cars and trucks, from old beaters to late model cars. Keep in mind that children are not allowed at these auctions.

Also, from what we have seen, most of them allow you to arrive early to look over the cars before the auctions starts. Expect to pay a small fee in addition to the price of the car, plus applicable taxes.

Learning how to buy impounded cars and how to buy seized cars is not hard, but also not recommended for those that do not have good understanding of car mechanical knowledge.

There are plenty of decent deals at police car auctions, but it requires careful consideration of each car’s value and what work it will need. A police impound auction is more suited for experienced auction car buyers.
