The European Economic Union offers many opportunities for car trading in general and specifically for online car auctions. Within the customs union, all European citizens can freely buy and sell cars. In different countries, the pricing of manufacturers varies, which can have an effect on the prices of used cars. Therefore, it is understandable that both dealers and private buyers look abroad for possible bargains. Even if a vehicle first appears to be a bargain, there may be some dangers. Therefore, one must be aware of these dangers in order to safely use car auctions throughout Europe. First of all, you should be aware of the transport routes and transport costs and make sure that these costs do not exceed the price of the same vehicle in Germany. In addition, one must pay attention to the fact that vehicles in other countries may have different equipment and extras. This is even more important for car auctions in Europe, because no test drive and inspection can take place. In this case, the dealer should be contacted and asked for the details. Also with the sales contract at car auctions in Europe, it is important to be in constant contact with the dealer to prevent ambiguities and foreign language expressions.

Customs auction
Customs auctions are a lesser known but exciting opportunity for professional buyers to acquire interesting vehicles and other goods. Such auctions include the sale of goods seized by customs as well as items from government inventories. These can prove to be a lucrative acquisition opportunity, as vehicles and products are often offered below their market value. However, successful participation in a customs auction requires careful preparation and knowledge of the specific procedures and legal conditions. It is essential to familiarize yourself with the special features and strategies of this type of auction in order to benefit from it. Understanding the subsequent handling processes also ensures a smooth transaction after successful bidding.
VEBEG stands for "Verwertungsgesellschaft für Eigentum des Bundes mbH" (Federal German Sales Agency for Property Ltd.) and is known for the auction of used cars from military stocks. These auctions offer a unique opportunity to purchase robust and well-maintained vehicles which often feature special characteristics due to their military use. Those interested in buying such a used car benefit from transparent auction processes and a selection that ranges from classic cars to specialized vehicles. However, certain steps must be observed, from registration to the handling of the purchase. Additionally, it is important to understand the legal framework and the condition of the vehicles to gain a clear insight into the expected product and to act according to one's own needs.
