The Best Way To Buy Government Auction Cars

The U.S. government is required to offer its used vehicles to the public through open auction which makes this a really good opportunity for anyone who takes the time and initiative to do a little research.  The U.S. General Services Administration is the federal agency clearing house for all federal vehicles and is responsible for auctioning when the federal agencies are finished with them.  Each federal agency turns their vehicles into the U.S. General Services Administration auction facility located nearest them and then U.S. General Services Administration personnel will then conduct the auction.

Government auction cars offered for auction through the U.S. General Services Administration are normally sold for a fraction of what they would be sold for if sold retail.  These vehicles are thoroughly cleaned and detailed and are considered drive ready.  The vehicles will normally be about two or three years old.  They will have been used for staff vehicles and will not be specialized vehicles or repossessed vehicles.

How To Buy Repossessed Motorhomes – 5 Tips To Help You Along The Way

How To Buy Repossessed Motorhomes

If you want a motorhome, but don’t want to spend thousands of dollars to get it, consider buying a repossessed motorhome. Like any other big purchase, when you fail to make a certain number of payments the lender will come and repossess it.

However, in some cases the owner of the motor home will voluntarily give it up if he or she knows they can no longer afford it. Either way, it will help you save a great deal of money. Here are a few tips to help you get the best possible deal on a repossessed motor home.

Towing Methods and the Differences Between Them

There is a wide variety of motor vehicles traveling on and off roads, all of them susceptible to mechanical failure or accidents which may leave them incapacitated and in need of tow. Even vehicles in perfect working order are sometimes towed rather than driven (for example, when a family relocates and want to have their vehicle delivered to their new place of residents).
Due to the infinite possible types of circumstances it is not surprising that there are several types of tow trucks and towing methods. Using the most befitting towing method in each specific case is of great importance.

Towing Methods

In the following paragraphs you will find a summary of the different methods of towing currently in use along with a brief description of their relative advantages and disadvantages and the way these determine the circumstances in which each method becomes the most suitable one.

Types of Tow Trucks
There are several tow truck manufacturers and a wide range of models which differ greatly from each other, but still, tow trucks can still be divided into three basic types:
• Wheel lift tow trucks
• Hook and chain tow trucks
• Flatbed tow trucks

Tow trucks belonging of the wheel lift type use steel yokes which are hooked and secured under the back or front axles of the towed vehicle. Using hydraulic power (produced by a hydraulic pump driven by the tow truck’s engine) the yoke is raised and lifts the end under which it is attached clear off the ground. The towed vehicle remains with two of its wheels in contact with the road. This method of towing is also commonly referred to as “tow by dolly” or “dolly towing”.
