Impounded car auctions
With such a large number of uninsured vehicles being seized by the police and not reclaimed, their disposal has become an increasingly sophisticated operation. Police forces are working closely with a number of auctioneers to ensure these vehicles are dealt with swiftly.
SMA Vehicle Remarketing is one of a number of auctioneers that work with the police to dispose of seized vehicles. The company has 5 auction centres, all of which handle vehicles recovered under the Police Vehicle Recovery Scheme, including uninsured vehicles. In the last year the company has auctioned over 2000 vehicles, on behalf of 5 police forces.
In terms of what goes for auction and what goes for scrap, some police forces operate a system whereby vehicles under the value of £1000 are dismantled and destroyed whereas those over £1000 are sold off. SMA Vehicle Remarketing have auctioned a Rolls Royce Phantom EWB, Ferrari’s, Porsche 911’s amongst other high value vehicles.
