A few answers to key car auction questions
- What is an auction car?
Basically, auction car is a catch-all term to refer to any car that’s classed as used, salvaged or seized. That could include pre-owned vehicles, cars that have suffered cosmetic or structural damage, or cars that have been repossessed by the police or car insurance companies. If you’re looking for a police car auction in the East Midlands, then look no further.
- Can anyone buy a car at auction?
Generally, you don’t need any special qualifications to buy a car at auction. There are certain dealer-only auctions for pre-approved buyers, but these aren’t the sort of car auctions we deal in here at RAW2K. Our online car auctions in the East Midlands are open to both private and commercial buyers, so don’t hesitate to get bidding!
- What are the different salvage categories (or salvage titles) for auction cars?
When a car is processed by the police or an insurance company, it is assigned a salvage title to indicate its level of damage. Two of these were updated with new names in October 2017.
- Category N (formerly Cat D) – non-structural faults
- Category S (formerly Cat C) – notable structural damage
- Category B – extensive structural damage
- Category A – beyond any repair. Strictly scrap only*
NOTE: Though we’ve mentioned Category A vehicles here for the sake of clarity, it’s worth noting that we don’t actually sell Cat A Audis here at RAW2K. For the vast majority of our customers, they’re rarely worth the time!
