For Immediate ReleaseOctober 09, 2014
Public Works offers deals online starting October 11
San Rafael, CA – Sedans, pick-up trucks, SUVs and more will be available for public purchase starting October 11 when the Marin County Department of Public Works starts an online auction.
A Ford Expedition, a few Chevy trucks and even a Bookmobile are among the 11 sale items. All vehicles and equipment will be available through PublicSurplus.com, a secure auction website specializing in selling government property to the public. Vehicles and equipment are listed significantly below Blue Book value.
As the County’s goals remain fixed on budget reduction and environmental consciousness, the County fleet is being trimmed and vehicles with high fuel consumption are being replaced by hybrids or flex fuel options. The retirement of diesel vehicles is in compliance with California’s Air Quality regulations.
The auction begins at midnight Pacific time on Saturday and lasts until 2:00 p.m. Saturday, October 18. Details about the auction items are not available until the auction begins. All vehicles and the corresponding service records will be available for inspection Tuesday, October 14, through Thursday, October 16, from noon to 3 p.m. at the County Garage, 6 Peter Behr Dr., San Rafael.
All items are sold “as is” and all sales are final; it is the bidder’s responsibility to check the vehicle’s condition prior to purchase.
