All Capital Auto Auction’s Philly used car auctions draw bidders from all over Philadelphia, New Jersey, Delaware, and New York Area who are looking for the best deals anywhere in the region. Each auction’s inventory of cars is ever changing with truckloads of new vehicles delivered to the Bleigh Ave. auction yard every day. There is such a huge turnover in the used car inventory that it is impossible to predict what will be on the auction block from week to week. Each week’s listings feature a variety of vehicles for family car auction, mini van auction, SUV auction, truck auction, and sports car auction. The sales list also frequently includes boats, recreational vehicles, and motorcycles.
