The Easy Way to Find a Brand New Car at Auction

By Mike Richards Updated: 12/11/2017 Posted: 10/23/2015

Just about everyone loves a brand new car. However, shopping for one can be an ordeal. It’s hard to deal with going down to the dealership and having to negotiate a good deal with car salesman, after all. In some ways trying to get into a dealer auction where there will be new cars for sale can be even more stressful, albeit in a different way.

Despite all this, there are ways to get brand new cars at auctions the easy way – and the absolute best way may not even require you to leave your home at all.

Car Auctions Are Harrowing Places

If you’ve never been to a car auction, it’s the kind of experience that sticks with you for years afterwards. Private dealer-only auctions are especially chaotic and intense, and if you’ve accompanied a friend or family member with their own dealer license you’ll likely remember how confusing and stressful the experience was. 

Some people can actually thrive in this environment. If you’re like most people, though, you’d rather find a way to avoid this stressful situation

The Benefits of an Auction without the Drawbacks

Thankfully, there are ways to avoid the stress of the auction floor and still gain access to a dealer auction if you’re committed to finding the best price for a new car without having to resort to a trip to the dealership. The world of online car auctions has exploded as the internet has matured, and people can engage in dealer-only new car auction bidding without ever having to be present on site.

All you need is to find a third party proxy bidder, a company that maintains its own dealer license that, for a small fee, will bid on your behalf on certain of these online dealer auctions. With these companies, anyone, even those people who do not have family members or friends with dealer licenses, can have access to auctions selling new cars.

Since you’re not doing the bidding directly but instead providing money to a bidding company to do it on your behalf, you don’t have to deal with the anxiety associated with being outbid and debating with yourself whether to go over your initial maximum bid. Your proxy bidder simply keeps bidding for you until they reach the maximum you set, and they’ll stick with it.

If you’re the kind of person who enjoys the thrill of the bidding process, by all means continue to attend dealer auctions in person for new cars. However, if you want to avoid all that, an online dealer auction is a much more suitable path for you. In fact, you won’t even have to leave the house to pick up your car – for just a few dollars more, your proxy bidder will transport your vehicle right to your address. In some instances you can even arrange for transport overseas.
