UK Police/Govt. auctions.

Updated on February 23, 2013

A good business opportunity

For those of you who have not heard of Police & Govt. auctions before, they are auctions used to dispose of items that are seized under the 'Proceeds of crime Act', items recovered from burglaries but not claimed and items that have been found and handed-in, but which have not been claimed.

These items can range from hand-tools to cameras to jewellery (and much more). These are a good place to pick-up items cheaply to re-sell for profit.
