My friend's looking to get a used truck, no older than a 1994 or 1995. He wants to spend about $1100-1500, but if he can spend mnore on the low end of that, he will. How are the used auto auctions that I notice they have in Pomona? Are there any others around here? If so, if you know any info/websites about them, let me know!

There's some huge ones in South Fontana. One is off Cherry between Slover & Jurupa.

Thanks. I looked up info & see they hold them every Tues at 9am at 13901 San Bernardino Avenue. 98% of the cars have been in a collision though! No thanks!

I see another website for a company called Cox Enterprises at 10700 BEECH AVE, FONTANA, CA 92337-7205. I called their A#, but it didn't say much on the voicemail.

Any other places?

$1100-1500 probably isn't much above scrap value so I wouldn't expect much for that kind of money.

Government Departments and Agencies | USA.gov

GSA hold auctions all over the country. You can set up an account and bid on seized or government vehicles. There are auctions held by various agencies, and you have a chance to inspect the vehicles. The agencies will typically provide you with a description of the vehicles - whether they are salvage, been in an accident, running or not running, water damage, etc. You do not need to buy a kit or join a club or buy a membership or any of that with a government auction.

My sons and I actually got interested in this and did the research a while back when I wanted to buy a car but became fed up with the game playing at car dealerships by car salesmen who thought they could pull the wool over my eyes because I'm female. However, I grew up in a family of "car nuts", I'm a lawyer, and I have this "thing" against being taken advantage of and treated like an idiot. I figured those salesmen needed my money more than I needed their car, so ... I did my research (both government auction and DMV wholesale/retail dealer license research), went to some auctions, learned how to play the game, eventually found the vehicle I wanted and purchased it for a lot less than I would have paid through a dealer. One of my sons purchased a retired law enforcement vehicle. The other son is waiting for a particular vehicle to come up for auction.

The website link should get you in the right direction. Best of luck!
