What to Expect When Bidding at a Car Auction

Many SEMA-member companies use collector cars and exotics for promotional purposes, a fact that is borne out year after year at the SEMA Show. Whether in advertising, in catalogs or at car shows, the right vehicle with the right accessories can not only attract attention, but may serve to motivate consumers to purchase a component or a whole package. Whether for company promotion or for personal use, finding the perfect vehicle may involve lengthy and complex searches that call for extended travel and diligent study. The typical avenues that buyers pursue include dealerships, magazine and newspaper classified advertising and the Internet. On the other hand, a vehicle auction can be a one-stop shopping venue where buyers may find exactly what they are looking for.
