Hello,

I am looking to buy a few cars from auction. However, I don't know the process or where to get started. Could someone help me learn the process and get started?

Thanks!

Manheim and similar auto auction (adesa etc) are dealer only auctions. Depending on the state you live, each state have their own process to become a used car dealer. Google will help you with that. If you don't want to go through the whole process of getting a dealer license , sometimes you can find a dealer who will "lend" you the license, often for a fee, so you can buy cars from places like manheim (most use AuctionAccess). If you have any question feel free to PM me.
