HOW TO FIND and BUY at Government Surplus Auctions

HOW TO FIND and BUY at Government Surplus Auctions

East Coast Classics merchandise is now available here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/ECCMerch?ref=search_shop_redirect

I’ve bought a bunch of things from government surplus auctions. Some were confiscated evidence, others were surplus items. There’s been a learning curve too on what to expect when buying at these auctions. In this video I share with you the things I’ve learned including tips, tricks and pitfalls too.

    Next, the government sell their cars at eighty thousand kilometres. It must be expensive having to replace cars all the time. And, driving a whole heap of government vehicles all around the highways for no reason is not going to make the boss any money. Therefore, their are going to be plenty of government auctions coming up in the next year or so anyway. That will make some people happy. Yep, that’s why they have never driven the government vehicles around on the highways like this before. Because it’s stupid.

    Too many people doing this today. It’s crazy how much some vehicles bring. People get carried away with overspending. Especially newbies.

  32. Truth Finder on October 20, 2021 at 12:39 pm

    I am a taxi driver of 20 years,,,, The Crown Vic Police Interceptor is the best car ever made,,,, they sold like hotcakes, rumor is the government made Ford stop making them to give other Auto Lines a chance as they were going down due to the sale of CVInterceptor sales by Ford,,, I don’t know if thats true but i could not understand why they stopped making them in either 2011 or 12….. I am thinking of buying one instead of buying a new car,,
