The smell of petrol and the dispersal of exhaust fumes mingling together with excitement and bargain-hunting is what makes the Car Auctions at Collingbourne Auctioneers in Jomtien a unique and exciting afternoon.
Do you remember what it was like visiting the car auctions?
Second-hand cars in Thailand are so highly priced from private dealers that most people opt to buy a new car on finance. It is routine to see a 20-year-old banger on the marketplace for more than 100,000 THB that you wouldn’t pay 20,000 THB for back in your home country, which is in all honesty, absolute extortion.
If you are seeking an affordable second-hand car in Pattaya, the Wednesday Car Auctions at Collingbourne Auctioneers, starting at 4pm, is the only venue of its kind in the city, auctioning off an array of cars, motorbikes, boats and even tuk-tuks.
At this week’s auction, some of the highlighted cars and trucks up for auction include a Mitsubishi Pajero, a Toyota Granvia, a gleaming white Toyota Camry, an Isuzu Dragon Eye refrigerator van and an L 2000 Kubota tractor.
Whether you are seeking a moped, big bike or even quads, the motorbike auction has some great deals, such as the spine-tingling Ducati 996 Sps, a Yamaha Dragster, a 250CC quad racer, and lots of standard Yamaha and Honda mopeds.
Don’t feel lonely and left out in the cold if you are a boat lover, as there will be a kayak, a Crownline 192 speedboat mercruiser 5.0 v 8, a SeaRay 175 sport mercruiser 3.0L TKS and a Fishing boat with yamaha 15 hp engine and acc, all available to big against.
If that doesn’t get your juices flowing, then nothing ever will. The beauty of an auction is the uncertainty of it all. You never know what bargain you are going to find, and you never will if you stay at home. So why not try something different this Wednesday afternoonfrom 4pm, and who knows, you might find something you have always wanted, for a price that is affordable.
