If you’re in need of a new car but on a tight budget then you should head over to Melaka. JPJ Melaka will be auctioning off vehicles that have been confiscated over the past few years. The auction is open to the public and will be held on the 15th of August in JPJ Bukit Katil, Melaka.
There will be about 87 vehicles up for auction to the public. All the vehicles have been confiscated since 2014 for various reasons. It could be due to a JPJ operation, an owner giving up the vehicle, or it being confiscated after being pulled over.
Out of the 87 vehicles, there are actually 79 clone cars. Of these clone cars six of them are categorised as non-registrable. Meaning if you buy the car you might not be able to drive it after all.
The auction will begin at 9:30AM on the 15th of August and will start off with two vans and a lorry. Meanwhile, a lot of attention has been brought to one of the cars listed for the auction.
Cars At The Auction
A 2005 model Mini Cooper has caught the eye of many interested people. Bidding for this car will begin at RM4,500. However, take note that it is one of the non-registrable vehicles.
Other interesting cars on the list include a few BMW’s, a Subaru Impreza, Honda Jazz, Honda Accord, Toyota Wish, and a Honda Stream.
If you’re into old somewhat vintage cars, there is a 1998 model Proton Saga with a starting bid of RM450. In fact, the highest bidding will start at RM19,500 for a 2005 model Honda Accord.
In the category of non-registrable vehicles, a Perodua Kancil has the lowest bid of RM300. Meanwhile, the highest bid is RM12,000 for a Honda Odyssey. Looks like Honda is really keeping it’s value .
Procedures To Follow
All the vehicles on auction will be on display to the public on the 8th and 9th of August from 9AM to 4PM. Prospective buyers need to bring their IC or at least a copy of it when placing a bid.
They must also pay a RM2,000 deposit in cash during the registration. Don’t worry, if the bid is unsuccessful then JPJ will return it. If not, RM2,000 will just be deducted from the bidding price.
Good luck to anyone looking to buy these cars!
