Auction Auto TransportAuctions have long been a part of the human economy; no matter where you go, if you’re in a country that has used money or a barter system for most of its history, chances are there’s an auction or two that you can find and buy stuff at. Auctions work a bit different than a normal store – instead of buying something at a fixed price, you bid on it, and other people can make bids higher than you if they want that item. Many people will turn to online auto auctions when buying a car for this very reason. Most auctions start at ridiculously-low prices for the things they sell, and cars are usually no different. Therefore, going to an auto auction can be a great way to save money on your next car.

However, actually buying something from an auction can be somewhat tricky, especially if you’re new to the experience or if you’re buying something from an online auction. Online auctions work much the same way as an in-person auction, but instead of picking up whatever it is you bought there at the physical location, buying something online means you’re going to have to have it shipped to you, and since you can buy just about anything at auction, the price and method of shipping whatever it is you bought is really dependent on what exactly it is that you did, in fact, buy. And when you buy a car at auction, it is far from the easiest thing to have shipped.

Auction auto transport has exploded onto the scene in the past few years, primarily thanks to the rise of online auctions via the world wide web. More and more people are learning that they can eschew the whole oily-used-car-salesman routine at the local used car lot by shopping online, and this recently emerged niche in the automotive industry has led to great things for auto transporters. More and more shippers are realizing that online auto auctions are here to stay and instead of avoiding them they’re actually great for business. Most online auctions have large warehouses scattered throughout the U.S., mostly in major cities. This in turn makes it easy for carriers to pick up four or five at a time and then just run them to various places in the U.S.

Auction auto transport can usually be done a bit cheaper than most other types of transport if for no other reason than the fact that many carriers like to pickup from auctions. It’s easy, the auction house is generally large-truck friendly (which means plenty of space to maneuver), and most online auction warehouse workers know how it goes, which means that carriers can get in, get out, and then get on with life. It’s a win-win for everyone. If you’re interested in getting your vehicle shipped, fill out our free online quote request form or give us a call and speak to one of our live agents.
