Auction Information

The City of Dallas Auto Pound will temporarily suspend the live portion of the auto pound auction beginning with the already advertised March 23rd, 2020 sale until further notice in an effort to help deter the potential spread of COVID-19.

Instead, weekly ONLINE auctions will be held through Lone Star Auctioneers at

Because crowds have the potential to spread this virus, the online auto pound will have NO PREVIEW, beginning with the March 23rd, 2020 auction. This means that nobody will be allowed to physically view the item prior to its sale. Instead, only photos of the vehicles will be provided.

We currently anticipate that the live auction will return sometime in the future. However, until that time please refer to this posting area, or the Lone Star website listed previously for the most current information regarding the Dallas Auto Pound auction status.

Here is a direct link to where the online items will be posted going forward:
