Those looking to buy vehicles for sale at bank repossessed cars auctions need to exercise a little caution and remember that the reason they have been taken back are from people who have likely been in debt and could not afford the monthly repayments. This often means that the maintenance of the automobile may have been neglected and regular servicing or repairs have probably not been carried out when necessary. It is advisable to take a mechanic with you if at all possible to have a good look over the vehicle before bidding. Most of these events have a showroom area where repo cars, bakkies, motorcycles, trucks and vans can be viewed before the bidding begins.
Most of the major banks in SA, Nedbank, Absa, Standard bank and Wesbank from First National have no problem in financing automobiles of this nature and some of them will have areas set aside at the auction events for those who need to apply for finance on the spot. There is usually a deposit to be paid up front before any bidding gets under way at an event and the amount will differ from one place to the next. If you are new to the auctioning and bidding process then there is always someone available to help explain the process to you and what to expect when bidding. A good tip is to attend one or two events before you are ready to buy just to observe exactly what goes on and how they sell vehicles for sale at bank repossessed cars auctions throughout South Africa.
