AFTER THE AUCTION SALES ARE OVER: Welchel Auction is not responsible for vehicle repairs or startup of any kind – buyers will be responsible for coordinating additional services and providing their own equipment (Auction does not supply batteries, fuel, etc.). In the event a vehicle will need a locksmith, or the vehicle will not start, buyers must schedule to arrange these services.
Welchel Auction offers scheduled tows at a cost of $65 Hook and $5/mile tow within a 40-mile radius of pick-up location. Please schedule locksmith and/or tow service, if needed, prior to making your payment.
