Going to an actual auction

GinaG's picture

Going to an actual auction seems barbaric at this point, since there are so many online auctions these days. Some of the best auctions online are government auctions, and a great site for them is Govdeals. Govdeals has auctions open for all kinds of federal surplus, ranging from service equipment to stuff they've seized, and there are some great deals to be had. The lots include ambulances and fire trucks, and an operational ferry, and some of this stuff goes for cheap. Some of it you will need some financing for – the lowest priced fire truck was about $5,000. Still, you can get some stuff you'd need no fax payday loans to buy for cheap through auctions online on Govdeals. To read more, please visit http://personalmoneystore.com/payday-loans/no-fax-loans/
