Many are turning to on-line auctions to sell unneeded items. That's what the City of La Vergne is doing right now. Robert Rickman has the story...
La Vergne is disposing of commercial chippers, pickup trucks and much more at www.GovernmentDeals.com with the on-line auction ending at 7:00AM on Friday, May 30th.
Several big ticket items are now being auctioned on GovDeals by the city of La Vergne. The 53 items include tool boxes, a 17” chipper, cameras, speakers, and an assortment of vehicles.
Vehicles to be sold include a 2001 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS with an extended cab, 2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse, 2001 Dodge Stratus Coupe, several Ford Crown Victorias, and a 2001 Dodge Ram Wagon B3500.
Buyers can bid on surplus city assets after registering and logging in. Like other online auction sites, the items are available for a specific period of time. The highest bidder will win unless the auction reserve has not been met. Payment may now be made online through the GovDeals website. This is Robert Rickman.
City Administrator Bruce Richardson says, “Items sold as surplus property include equipment the city no longer uses, as well as property seized by police. All items auctioned are sold as-is and where-is, so it is up to the buyer to research and inspect the item prior to bidding.”
Contact information to view items prior to bidding is listed on each item. For more information, go to the city web page at www.lavergnetn.gov, click on the “Services” tab and go to “Government Auctions.” You can bid from now until the auctions close at 7:00 a.m. on May 30.
