Potential buyers can find repossessed tow trucks for sale at online selling platforms and auction sites. Repossessed tow trucks can also be purchased through bank or government auctions.
As of 2015, TruckRVList.com lists pre-owned trucks and RVs, including tow trucks. Listings can include the word "repo," which indicates the vehicle was repossessed. The ads list the location of the tow truck as well as vehicle information. Buyers contact sellers by way of an email form on the site.
Online retailers such as eBay.com also list repossessed tow trucks. Buyers sometimes have to bid, though some listings are available for outright sale. In some cases, sellers offer free shipping.
CommercialTruckTrader.com is an online auction and sale site. Not all listings are repossessed vehicles, though. Some listings are by the owner and others include stock from professional dealers. The site allows browsers to filter listings by size, drivetrain, fuel type and taglines such as low miles or repo.
AdvanceTruckCapital.com is a similar site, listing both repossessed and pre-owned tow trucks. The site can also calculate monthly payments if buyers want to finance the purchase.
Local repo auctions are another likely source for repossessed tow trucks. Banks sometimes list vehicles repossessed due to no payment. Government auctions offer vehicles confiscated as part of arrests.
