City to hold auction of surplus property
Miscellaneous items will be up for bid on Saturday
The next Yuma Public Auction will be held 9 a.m. Saturday at the city’s surplus property warehouse, 190 W. 14th St.
Miscellaneous items up for bids include bicycles, cameras, cars and trucks, jewelry, portable music players, televisions, filing cabinets, lawn equipment, watches, tables, desks, office supplies and equipment, pool tables, computers, knives, truck toolboxes, air compressors, gun cases and holsters, vehicle parts, industrial pumps, hand tools, rifle cases, voice recorders, grounds maintenance equipment, scrap metal, and more.
Items to be auctioned are generally well used and in various conditions. These items are no longer needed due to reasons such as changes in staff and usage or passing their budgeted life span. Other items came into city ownership through having become evidence in criminal cases.
Those wishing to examine items available for bidding and/or to register for participation in the auction can do so at the city yard between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Friday.
Those who wish to participate in the auction but who do not register in advance should arrive between 7 and 9 a.m. the morning of the auction to register. Registration is free to participants.
All items in the city’s public auction are sold “as is, where is” and must be picked up the same day. Bidders and buyers should also be aware of the following: No items have been authenticated; unless a certificate indicating otherwise came with the property coming into City possession; no warranty or guarantee is implied; buyer assumes all risk with purchase; absolutely no returns; no items will leave the auction area until they have been paid in full; bidder is responsible for item(s) after award; bidder buys it, bidder loads it; the city is not responsible for any items once sold; vehicles and other large equipment can only be removed at the completion of the auction.
The total price will also include a 10 percent buyer’s premium and 8.412 percent sales tax.
Surplus property belonging to the city is disposed as required by state law and the Yuma City Charter through public auctions, competitive sealed bids or other appropriate methods.
