*** Auction Description ***

Hundreds of cars, trucks, SUVs, motorcycles and more can be found selling for way below market value.
At some of their auctions you can also find personal property such as jewelry, computers, HDTVs… stolen and unclaimed property recovered by police departments.
Live and online auctions are held about twice per month at the Sacramento location. If you view the auction catalog online you will see that you can also register and bid online:
