You may pick up a good bargain by buying a vehicle at auction.
You may be able to negotiate a contract to buy the vehicle, or buy the vehicle on the 'fall of the hammer'.
In the event that an auction house will not allow a test drive, you should make a thorough inspection of the vehicle. Auctioneers have to have a dealers licence if they regularly sell vehicles, so be careful to check which vehicles have a warranty and those which do not.
