State Fleet Vehicle Auction 10 a.m. on Aug. 6
More than 200 vehicles, used tires
FRANKFORT, Ky. – (Aug. 1, 2013) – Nearly 225 vehicles and several pallets of used tires are slated to be auctioned off starting at 10 a.m. on Aug. 6, at the State Service Garage, 513 Barrett St. in Frankfort.
Among the many makes and models are 2-wheel drive, 4-wheel drive, pickups, vans, SUVs and cars. There are 193 vehicles in running condition and more than 30 classified as non-runners, to be sold as salvage.
“Many individuals and organizations benefit from buying a low-cost car, truck or van at the auction,” said Pete McDonald, director of the Kentucky Division of Fleet Management. “While the state no longer has need of these vehicles, they still have value.”
This is the second fleet sale of the year. Running vehicles range over years, makes and models, from 1992 to 2008.
The previous fleet auction in March brought an average sales price for running vehicles of $2,317. The lowest price was $600 and the highest was $10,000.
Individuals interested in the auction may pre-register and inspect the vehicles from 1-4 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 5, 2013. In addition, they may register and view the vehicles on the morning of the sale from 8-9:50 a.m. Questions can be directed to Fleet Management Inventory at (502) 564-9943. More information and a list of vehicles are available online at http://finance.ky.gov/services/surplus/Pages/publicauctions.aspx.

Payment can be made with cash; cashiers, certified, or travelers checks; money order or personal check with proper identification. Any check over $5,000.00 and all out-of-state checks must be accompanied by a letter of credit from the bank.
