Avoid Confusion At A Boat Auction
A boat auction can be very unique from other types of auctions. It is sometimes easy to have misunderstandings at these events if you don't pay close attention. Listen carefully to what announcers are telling you. If you are going to a boat auction and you want to see them run, you can sometimes make reservations. It would be impractical and possibly impossible to let every bidder test drive a boat at a boat auction. For this reason, many auctions will let people reserve time before the auction to test drive a boat. Sometimes you don't get what you'd expect at a boat auction if you don't pay close attention to what you are buying. Sometimes boats are auctioned off without trailers. Sometimes this would not be obvious if the boats are in the water to be auctioned. Or if it is sitting on a trailer, but the trailer is not included, it could be misleading. Sometimes there is difficulty in buying a boat from a different state because of differing state laws. In some states people are not required to title their boats, while in other states they are. This can sometimes make getting a title a hassle if a person from a title-required state buys from one that doesn't require titles. You should look into this if you need a title. Don't assume there is one. Sometimes you may get more than a boat and trailer at a boat auction. Some people may have a lease with a boat doc when they decide to put a boat up at an auction. If they don't have anything else, you may be buying the remaining time and debt on the boat lease also. Even if you don't want the doc, you may be financially responsible for it. There are many unique circumstances that may arise with a boat auction. If you go to a boat auction, pay attention and don't be confused.
