Would a guarantee on a car bought from a auction be as usefull as a chocolate fire guard?

I know where Nantes is I just don't know how to type ! I meant Rouen but couldn't remember when I was posting .A guarantee can be bought as an extra ,with options for how long you want the cover .As I said we bought a high speck car with low klms and just 18 months old for a good price .

Maitre Guignard who runs VP auctions is associated with Rennes and Nantes , so you would be effectivly buying from the same man, he is also present at each sale . its nearly all hire cars , company cars , leasing cars but there are some dealers cars sold as well , He does sell cars from Bankruptcy but The Judicial Auctionner from Lorient  (his girlfriend) must be present .. 

There are no garantys its all sold as seen having been through a CT which would declare their faults ...

Good luck

Nantes is not somewhere in Normandy its south of Rennes,did you mean there is also a car auction somewhere in Normandy.

Ours wasn't a high mileage and there were also brand new cars going at below showroom prices .You just have to be lucky and not pin your hopes on one car make .Ours was a high speck car with a low mileage .

The auction at Lorient is open to anyone with money to spend ! We bought our car there .My advice would be to see your bank first ,if you want a car over the limit on your credit card and get a guarantee from them ,it only last 2 days . Get there in the morning and look out the cars you like ,there is a full history available and mechanics report  the thing to remember is that the price posted is the minimum they will accept ,plus commission.From memory it is VP auctions and can be found on line ,I think ,they happen once or twoce a month ,otherwise they are at Nantes somewhere in Normandy

you mean VP auto i think, and it is open to all, not just pro's. cars there mainly ex reps and HIGH km, 40,000+ a year . you could try alcopa in rennes also
