car auctions in Washington

Car Auction Network has compiled these car auction sites in the state of Washington for both wholesale used car auctions, police auctions, and tow company auctions. We know that most of these are open to public bidders.

If you’re considering how to find a car auction in Washington, you have two options to consider: traditional wholesale car auctions that are open to the public and also government auctions — such as tow lot auctions and police auctions. The auction sites below are not for wrecked cars or salvage car auctions.

For the inexperienced car auction buyer, it is best to stick with public wholesale car auctions in Washington state since they often cater to buyers that have never attended an auction before. For police auction tow auctions, it is recommended to have a fair amount of car mechanical knowledge and also the means to get any repairs done cheaply.

Wholesale auctions also have the extra option of allowing you to buy a car or sell your car at an auction. Contact the auction you are interested in to verify specific details.

Tow Impound and Police Auto Auctions in Washington

The auctions below are from tow lots and police impound lots and other government auctions of vehicles. These are held less frequently than wholesale auto auctions and feature less cars or sale, but they will often have the best bargains for careful bidders that do their research.

We only suggest these tow company auction sites and police auction sites to experienced auction bidders. They move at a quick pace and can be more unforgiving to first-timers.
