    Auctioning off a vehicle
    by cato1210
    Hello,

    We have a tenant who is default on a unit and is coming up for sale. We cut the lock and lo and behold there's a mid 70s Fiat inside. Does anyone have any experience selling vehicles inside units? What steps would be need to take to do it properly?
