About Us

Public Auto Auctions, opened in 2001 in Austin, Texas with the vision of helping small charities benefit from car, truck, boat and RV donations. Since then, C.A.R. (Charitable Auto Recycling) has processed over 75,500 donations and helped raise over $20,000,000.00 in profits for some great charities in Austin, Texas and beyond.

In 2005, we expanded our client base to include the largest and best-known vehicle processing companies in the nation. We have also sold countless used vehicles on consignment for individuals. We strive to provide our charity clients, donors and auction buyers with the highest quality customer service available in the industry.

We are committed to finding the right buyer for each vehicle which results in higher resale prices and customer satisfaction. We have a long list of loyal auction clients including dealers, exporters, and individuals.

We have vehicles for every budget and need – from family mini-vans, to sports cars, to the occasional boat, camper, and motorcycle. The selection varies from week to week, but there are always good, clean, used cars at excellent prices. Public Auto Auctions sells vehicles that are auctioned off each and every Saturday using our stellar online platform!. The bargains are outrageous!!
