Police Auctions are a time-proven and established route used by Police forces across the country to dispose of proceeds of crime, lost and found, seized, unclaimed stolen and confiscated property. Police sales are held on a regular basis at auction houses and venues all over the UK. Our comprehensive Police Auction database covers ALL sales going on right now and details hundreds of auction lots every, single day.

Any cash they can raise goes into the system coffers so anything raised is a bonus!

Save Coppers By Buying an Ex Police Car!!!
By tracking down police vehicles that have served their time, you can buy an ex-pursuit car for a lot less than it would normally be worth.
Each year some ten million cars are sold in the UK. One and a half million of these are sold through auctions.
People can be wary of vehicle auctions because they worry that the cars may not be ‘straight’ or ‘legit’. BUT there’s one kind of auction where you can always guarantee that the cars on display are exactly what they say they are: Police Cars.
Only around 5,000 Police Cars are sold at Police Car auctions each year but if you know where to look, you can nick yourself a bargain for a good set of wheels. There are several auction houses commissioned by police forces to sell-off their old vehicles.
Police Car Sales usually take place every couple of weeks, and they are held right across the country.
Once a car has served its time, it’s stripped of all its Police markings, siren, radio, gun box and serviced, before going under the hammer. These vehicles may have done more miles than your average family runabout but, Police Cars are kept in tip-top condition. No expense is spared in keeping these motors immaculate and they receive the best parts, tyres, even oil.
The money raised from the sale of ex-Police Cars goes back to the police forces selling them. After the auctioneer fee and decommissioning costs it’s considered to be the most cost effective method open to the police when renewing their fleet. This is all good news for the consumer. If you’re willing to overlook some of the cosmetic scarring that can result from decommissioned Police vehicles then you can drive off having made a tidy saving. GAUK Auctions database lists every auctioneer where you can find police cars.
Police Lost & Found What happens to items handed into the Police and what are the criteria for them to end up in UK Police Auctions?
Usually the finder can keep the goods if they are not claimed within two months.
Occasionally the police may want to hold onto the goods if they suspect them to be stolen or suspect that the owner can be traced. The legal owner can claim their goods back up to one year after they have been handed over. If the police have handed the items to the finder they must retain them for a year. If the goods are found by the Police they can be disposed of at the discretion of the Chief Constable.
