It’s January in Phoenix, and you know what that means! The world-famous Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction kicks off a flurry of continuous fun-in-the-sun events. The auction will take place from January 13 through January 21, 2018. But die-hard Barrett-Jackson Car Auction fans know this huge car action (and the exchange of big money) begins in earnest on Saturday, January 20, when the most expensive cars will roll across the block! Indeed, hundreds of cars are sold every year for prices WELL exceeding $1 MILLION! Over 1,700 cars will be sold and most without a reserve this year. Without a reserve means the car will sell no matter what price the owner asked; consequently, the auctioned vehicle will sell for the price of the highest buyer’s bid, not necessarily the owner’s asking price. As a result, the level of excitement is at an almost excruciating level as sellers hold their breath and hope for their price, on what is, in many cases, the result of a labor of exacting standards of restoration.

More than a Car Auction-for Over 45 Years

This event draws folks from across the country, Canada, and in fact, from all over the world, making it not only grand in the sheer number of attendees but also in the range, scope, and interest of car enthusiasts (including many celebrities) as well. And truth be told, many come just for the people-watching. Undoubtedly it’s a world-class event at its best. Barrett-Jackson was originally established and began in Scottsdale in 1971. Over the next 45-plus years, it has expanded to cities such as Palm Beach, Vegas, and even Uncasville (that’s in Connecticut, in case you weren’t quite sure). The Auction can also be seen on live broadcast throughout the week. But who wants to sit on the sidelines while all the fun is happening out at WestWorld in Scottsdale? Instead, fly into Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport, grab a cab, Uber, Lyft, or shuttle, avoiding the airport fees on rental vehicles, and come to PHOENIX DISCOUNT Van & SUV Rental. Here we will rent you a minivan, SUV, or 15-passenger van for you and your crew, so you can enjoy the event live, up-close, and in person.
