Malaysians seeking to purchase used cars are likely to do so from either a dealer or directly from an owner. Many, however, do not realise the existence of a third avenue to procure used cars – public auctions.
More often than not, information about these public auctions only reach a very small number of people, and most of them are used car dealers themselves seeking to replenish their own stocks. For the members of the public, many among the small number of people who hear about these auctions know little on the whereabouts of these auctions or even how to proceed.
Because public auctions have been shrouded in mystery amongst the public, many have formed negative perceptions and mistrust towards auctions. The general assumption is that cars sold through auctions are in poor shape and badly maintained. But they will realize that that is not true if they attend one of CIMB’s Auto & Property Mart auctions.
