Re: BA Falcons at auctions
I was actually warned away from those auctions yesterday by a dealer. Admittedly, his advice might be biased but then again, I had just bought a car off of him so it's not like he was trying to sell me anything.
He reckons that for the low end cars, the ones at the auctions are to be avoided at all costs as they are the trade-in cast-offs of dealers.
He also said that all but the government fleet vehicles have already been picked over by dealers well before they've gone to the auction houses, so everything that makes it to auction is crud.
He also reckons that if you shop around, you can get just as good a deal, if not better, from a dealer. The exception being the government cars which apparently go straight to the auction houses.
