The auction boasts more than 400 cars available each day, and to buy at auction, a buyer must provide a driver's license and payment information. Most locations take both cash and credit or debit cards. All of the cars for auction are available on the company website, and mechanics are welcome to inspect vehicles before a purchase occurs.
The City of Dallas police department also holds weekly auctions at the Auto Pound. To participate, a buyer must register, make full payment within an hour of the purchase and arrange for a wrecker to remove the car following the purchase.Learn more about Vehicles
