Get News About Government Car Auctions

Government car auctions are the best place to find your dream car with a bargain. On these events there are literally hundreds of vehicles for sale, and most of the automobiles are new and not older than 2-3 years. The state can not tend to all these cars because it take money to take care of them and also a place where they can be stored. So to avoid all this hassle the vehicles are auctioned off and by doing so they are raising money for different projects. The starting bid price is way lower than their actual street value, if it would be high than people won't be interested and the cars would not be sold.

There is a good reason why these repo car sales are so low key, most of the people do not even know that they exist. This situation exists because these events are badly advertised though we should not really mind, the less people who know about them the less competitors we will have at the auction it self and the prices won't get out of hand. Most people at first hear about these government car auctions by the conventional offline media. This means that they most likely see and ad in the paper, or a TV commercial or a radio edit. Also there is the misconception that on these auctions you only find cars with bullet wholes or busted windshields, this can not be any further from the truth. The vehicles most of the times are in impeccable conditions and their age rarely reaches 5 years.

Driving You to Current Car Insurance News

A study has shown that one in ten adults have admitted to making fraudulent insurance claims. This is despite 91% of the population considering insurance fraud to be a serious offense. A minor proportion of 14% stated that they would definitely report someone if they had knowledge of them committing insurance fraud. Some 21% of the people asked, believed that everyone embellishes when making an insurance claim. The possibility of insurance fraud was widespread over all social groups, ranging from high income to lower income people.

Fraud costs the UK £1.5billion per year and it is estimated that fraud adds an extra 5% on to the typical policyholder's premium.

However, those who do pay their car insurance and not pull any scams may want to join the 'car wagon' and wish for lower car insurance, in return for greener cars.

Many drivers are prepared to pay that little extra for a new car that is friendlier to the environment in an exchange for cheaper car insurance. An insurance poll showed that on average, drivers would pay 4.8% more for a new car if it was proved to have low carbon emissions.
