Auction houses are taking the consumer market by storm, but many of us are still unsure of exactly what we can save money on. With the current economic climate auctions can be a great alternative to retail when it comes to saving on items you may be thinking you need to forgo.
Cars available at auction can have low kilometres and manufactures’ warranty included in some instances and have become increasingly popular amongst the general public. From ex-Government vehicles, prestige and classic to commercial vehicles, variety is paramount to the success of motor vehicle auctions this decade.
Trucks and Machinery
For those in the market for yellow goods, some auction houses specialise in industrial goods or have industrial sites scattered across the country, appealing to businesses, farmers and the mining industry alike. These large items are a huge investment and buying at auction can usually mean a significant discount for buyers.
Motor vehicle enthusiasts, smash repairers and panel beaters have bought from auction for decades, grabbing bargains on damaged vehicles for restorations and parts. Cars can sell for under a hundred dollars, making purchasing a low cost method for acquiring parts. With a large national network of reputable vendors, like insurance companies, consumers and small businesses can turn this cheap buying method into profitable DIY projects.
Recreational, IT and General Goods
Many auction houses also offer a vast array of recreational items such as boats and motorcycles, IT and computer equipment, as well as general items under the hammer on a regular basis. From office furniture, to electronics, whitegoods to fitness equipment, you will be sure to save considerable amounts on every item you bid on.
Auction houses have also evolved their buying methods to make sure consumers are comfortable dealing with them. Technology and consumer need is driving change and providing additional buying options like fixed prices, online auctions, and real time auctions that can be remotely accessed over the internet.
Whatever your preferred purchasing method, auction houses have evolved to integrate technology and meet the needs of modern consumers.
