Where do these cars come from?

Government Vehicles come from a wide variety of places, but the general rule is as follows:

If a vehicle was purchased under a federal or state government contract, then it is eligible to be sold at a government auction.

  • Federal Government
  • State Government
  • Local Councils
  • Police Services
  • Fire & Emergency Services
  • Religious Groups & other Non-profit Organisations
  • Universities & other Education Organisations
  • Hospitals & Ambulance Services

What types of cars are they?

As you would expect, a wide range of makes and models are offered with varying ages and kilometres. Everything from family sedans and station wagons, to hatchbacks, 4WDs, mini buses, vans and other commercial vehicles, some with as few as 10,000km, others with up to 100,000kms. However, the vast majority of vehicles would be around 2 years old and approximately 40,000kms. Ford, Holden, Toyota, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Honda, Kia, Subaru – you name it, we’ve got it. Just check out our catalogue to see what’s being offered this week.

Are they in “good” condition?

Government bodies take great pride in the upkeep and maintenance of their vehicles. You will find most of the vehicles come with stamped log books, complete with service history. Also, the majority of passenger vehicles sold through the Government Auctions are supplied with a Roadworthy Certificate, and many of them are still under manufacturer’s warranty. After you find your next vehicle through our website, simply contact the auction complex where it is located to find out it’s exact details.
