Police auctions tend to conjure up images of beat up cars confiscated from drug dealers and mint condition police cruisers that—for one reason or another—never saw service. The reality lies somewhere in the middle, and there are some good deals to be had so long as you're careful, and absolutely sure about what you're doing. Let this list be your insurance.
You could tell that most people knew each other. It felt like these few dozen bidders were part of an exclusive network of junkyard owners and flip-artists who have been bidding on cars against each other for years. Every now and then, when one guy outbid another, you’d see the losing bidder lean over to a friend and talk shit on the winner. “He just buys cars for the sake of buying them. He probably makes no money,” I heard one guy whisper. Police auctions are full of mysteries and secrets.
All purchases must be removed at buyers expense and responsibility on June 9th & 10th from 9:00am - 3:00pm from the auction location in Loveland. Individuals picking up after this date may incur a late removal fee or may not be permitted to participate in future auctions. We schedule our crews based on these dates so if you're unable to pick up within these time frames please do not bid.
APPOINTMENTS: Property is released by appointment only beginning December 1, 2017. There is no charge to sign up on Eventbrite. Our switch to a reservation system better serves our community with shorter wait times. Be sure keep track of your appointment time confirmation emailed to you. We recommend that you print this out or have it available on a mobile device. The time you have reserved is on the lower half of the ticket. We cannot take residents for a time in which you have not been scheduled.
This information covers the policies and procedures for agency disposal and turn in of items through Surplus Property. If items are brought to Surplus Property, the next step is to get a login and password to the Surplus database (Reuse). If agency is a local government (Cities, counties, special districts, etc.) please see information under "Local Governments" below.
High Mobility Multi-Purpose Wheeled Vehicles (HMMWVs) are available for transfer and donation. Donation recipients will be required to sign the linked Hold Harmless Statement. HMMWV vehicles and trailers which are equipped with Goodyear Wrangler MT/R tires have exhibited sidewall cracking which can lead to a tire failure at later stages of tire life. These failures increase the risk of a sudden blow-out with immediate loss of air pressure, accident or rollover of vehicle which could result in serious injury or death. Please read this important alert from DLA.
