Public Auction Policies

The Public Auction offers the opportunity for the public to buy vehicles. No matter what the condition, all cars can generate competitive bidding. This is achieved through our highly skilled auctioneers who are trusted and respected professionals. When you deal with the Greater Cleveland Auto Auction you have the assurance of professional merchandising and sales provided by a trustworthy and respected organization.
