Hello everyone, searched for similar topic on SD but didn't find any,you are more than welcome to ask questions about purchasing a vehicle from "dealers only" auto auctions like Manheim or Adesa.

I can share auction date, like recent prices and recent sales, ask questions will try to help you guys out, been benefiting from SD for sometime now, so decided maybe this would be helpful for other members.
Best regards,

Please include as much information as possible, like year, trim and region.
I am doing this on my spare time, so if I dont see detailed information I will skip that post.
Thanks



Please stop asking for access to the auction using my credentials. I can take you to the auction for a fee, but I wont be able to give out my username and password so you can search the vehicle on your own.

Format of run list with corresponding example below:
Date Auction Sale Type Price Odometer Cond Color Eng Trans In Sample ( dont worry about the last one)
04/02/15 PA Regular $58,800 20,628 Avg SILVER 6G A Yes

Dear members of SD

I have been sharing auction data and statistics with the community for awhile now, I do this on my spare time and I get tons of messages asking for my login and password information all the time. I would like to remind that I will not share that info nor will I sell it.
Another thing, if you want to find out the price of the specific vehicle that was sold at the auction eg. you have a VIN # and the region it was sold I can see if I can get you the price it was sold for, but it takes my time. Some of you sent me Amazon gift cards which I really appreciate, so if you need specific info and contacting me through pm please be aware of this.
I will start ignoring certain requests since I am extremely busy lately.
Good luck

A note from IDontPayRetail:

I have access to the same info as Antibiotic. I can buy cars for you at auction. [autoauctionagents.com] PM me for info. Additionally:
  1. I'll respond to all requests equally
  2. I'll only search for you once, as it is very time consuming
  3. Specific Vehicle VIN Searches are too time consuming for the scope of this thread. If you want a specific vehicle VIN search, PM me and we can discuss it for perhaps a fee.

Good intention. But with those auctions, you need to provide proof that you're a dealer to be admitted.

Ya dealer prices are way better than we have to pay...
I know someone who has a dealer license and offered to tag along to buy a car for a dealer price + a nominal fee that i would have to pay him.

I wasn't looking for a car so told him i would take a rain check.

Yes, you have to be a dealer to get in, there are certain ways to get in, that I wouldn't discuss here, all I am offering is price statistics so members can shop around when they need a vehicle.

You can get in as a dealer's representative. There used to be sites online where you could pay a fee to someone who has access to the auctions and then gain entrance as his representative, using his credentials. I haven't been involved in this in awhile so I don't know if this is still an option.

To get an accurate figures, I need the make, model and trim, as well as the region ( state)
Otherwise it wont be accurate.
Thanks

There might be some other ways as well, but dealer will have to trust you his credentials, since you will be able to purchase vehicles on his behalf, what if you purchase and wont pay for it? And it happens few times?
