North Carolina is a great place to visit a public auto auction! There are a few located around the state that are open to the public. These car auctions offer used cars and trucks from bank repos, trade-ins, private seller cars, police impounds, and more. Often you can find cars range great in price from $1000 up to $20000+ for late model vehicle auctions. Use the links below to visit each North Carolina Auto Auction website to verify sale dates and what form of payments they accept.
Most public car auctions in North Carolina do not charge a membership fee or entry fee to view the auction. It is very important that you arrive to the auctions early so that you can view their inventory carefully before the auction starts. Be sure to ask the auction for the “fee schedule” so that you know how much auction buyer’s fees will be and also any applicable taxes. While price ranges vary, these are great opportunities to get a good deal on a used car under $5000. Also, you may want to visit the auction a few times before buying a car because their inventories change very frequently. If you do not see something interesting the first trip, you can easily attend the next auction the following week. Some auctions will also allow you to buy a car off the lot without having to bid in the auction.
