April 3, 2013

An assortment of used snowplows are up for auction.

Looking for a used car? Or, maybe you’re in the market for a pickup truck? How about an old snowplow – got any room in your garage for one of those?

If so, you might want to head over to ADOT’s annual spring auction on April 6 at the ADOT Equipment Services yard, 2350 S. 22nd Ave., Phoenix 85009. Gates open at 6 a.m. and bidding starts promptly at 8 a.m.

ADOT will auction vehicles, including 31 sedans, 86 pickups and 10 snowplows, as well as other surplus equipment that has been replaced or used beyond its life cycle with the agency – think front-end loaders, dump trucks, air compressors, message boards and even a few attenuators.

Potential bidders can visit the auction yard before the auction to inspect the available vehicles and other items. The pre-auction inspection is open 8 a.m. - 2 p.m. today and tomorrow (April 3-4) at the equipment services yard (2350 S. 22nd Ave. in Phoenix).
