There are a number of ways of getting hold of repossessed cars in Utah. Traditionally, places that get hold of the repo cars like police departments, government agencies, credit unions or those dealers that represent these bodies advertize locally in the press or on the radio.
More and more, it is possible to find repossessed cars auctions being promoted online, in classified ads and at auction websites. But it is by no means an easy task to seek out repossessed cars in Utah in this way. I have listed below a number of resources that hold car auctions but they are not always repossessed cars and so the deals are not always as good. Don’t get me wrong, it is still possible to get great deals this way.
I would suggest phoning these auction places in your area (use ctrl “f” to search the page for your town or city). Ask them what kind of auctions they hold, especially ask if they deal with bank repossessed cars, seized cars or ex-agency fleet cars. These are often the best bargain cars to be had as they are usually in good condition.
Many of these places will have a mailing list or will get in touch with you if you show an interest and want to leave your contact details. Try also the credit unions in your local town. They often outsource the sale of repossessed cars to local dealers but they can give you the lowdown on when a new lot will be on offer.
In Utah, like in all other states there are some auctions that are public auto auctions but others that are dealer only. A good trick, if possible, is to get friendly with a dealer who can get you into these.
Attending a number of these auctions will give you confidence and show you how they work. It’s always worth doing some homework on the kind of car you want and what price would be a good price. Lok up the book price (Kelly Blue Book) and this will give you an idea of what you should to pay at the top end. Many folk who manage to get hold of repossessed cars are saving thousands on even this price so it is well worth persevering and doing some research.
As you may have noted above, getting hold of repossessed cars in Utah might mean you have to do a little digging around and will take a little work but it is always worth the effort.
