Repossession Bidding FAQs
Who is eligible to bid on a repossessed vehicle from 1st Ed Credit Union?
Membership at 1st Ed Credit Union is not required to bid on a vehicle. However, if you are interested in obtaining financing through 1st Ed, membership is required.
1st Ed Credit Union does not allow the sale of any repossessed vehicle to an employee, director or their close relatives. The credit union defines close relatives as Spouse, Parent, Child, Sibling, Grandparent, Grandchildren, Aunts, Uncles, Nieces, Nephews or Domestic Partner, including all such relationships that exist through marriage or domestic partnership (i.e. step-, half-, and in-laws).

The vehicle is located at our Chambersburg Branch at 1156 Kennebec Drive, Chambersburg, PA 17201. An appointment to view the vehicle is not necessary, but if you have questions please call 717-264-6506 x118.
What forms of payment are accepted?
Only cash or certified funds are accepted as payment. If proceeds for the sale are to be obtained through financing, a verified commitment letter must accompany your bid in order for it to be considered. Checks must be made payable to “1st Ed Credit Union”.
The successful bidder must consummate the sale within 2 business days of notification that the bid has been accepted. Failure to complete the transaction in the 2 business day time frame will result in forfeiture of the bid and the credit union will then consider the next highest bid.
