Car auctions in Cape Town and the Western Cape are a great way to meet new people and to purchase a used or bank repo vehicle for yourself or your loved ones. Banks like ABSA, Standard Bank, Wesbank and Nedbank are all involved in auction events, normally of reposessed cars. You can get vehicles by a range of manufacturers, including Toyota, Nissan and VW, and often you can pick up motorcycles by Mitsubishi as well. Seeing a ‘for sale’ sign is truly promising, because cars are extremely expensive in South Africa because of our limited production of them. The Western Cape is a beautiful province that is best explored on foot, by bike, or by car.
If you are living in the region and are interested in attending car auctions in Cape Town and the Western Cape you can find out more information about them online or in your local newspaper. If you ask at your bank of choice, whether it is Wesbank, Nedbank, Standard Bank or ABSA, they will also be able to tell you where and when their next auction is happening and may even be able to give you a list of all of the cars available. That way if you’re looking for a Toyota, you know not to go if they’re only advertising Nissan, VW or Mitsubishi. A for sale sign might make your eyes sparkle, but there is nothing worse than dashed hopes.
Auctioneers are there for sale purposes so if you are looking for additional finance in order to buy the car itself, it is imperative that you speak to your bank first. In addition, the cars which are on sale come in a variety of conditions so it’s a good idea to find out if you can test drive the car, or at least inspect it before making your decision. You don’t want to be half way to Grabouw only to have your engine fall out. That being said, it’s normally feasible to get a good deal at the Western Cape vehicle auctions in and around Cape Town city.
