October 28, 2013

PHOENIX – If you’re in the market for a used pickup truck, sedan or maybe even a backhoe, it might be worth it to check out the Arizona Department of Transportation’s fall auction on Nov. 2 in Phoenix.

ADOT will be auctioning vehicles, including 61 pickups, 14 sedans and three vans, as well as other surplus equipment that has been replaced over time. Potential bidders are encouraged to inspect the equipment in advance during any of three pre-auction inspection days: 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., Wednesday through Friday (Oct. 30-Nov. 1).

The ADOT Used Equipment Auction is scheduled as follows:

When: Saturday, Nov. 2 (Gates open at 6 a.m. – bidding starts promptly at 8 a.m.)
Where: ADOT Equipment Services Auction Yard
           2350 S. 22nd Ave., Phoenix 85009

Additional equipment to be auctioned includes front-end loaders, dump trucks, air compressors, arrow boards and assorted construction equipment.

To avoid delays and lines, potential bidders can register for the auction ahead of time during the Wednesday – Friday pre-auction inspection days. All potential bidders must pre-register in person. Bidders will also be able to register the day of the auction when the gates open.

ADOT encourages those who plan on attending to dress appropriately for the outdoor event. Please wear proper footwear, use sunscreen, wear a hat and bring some drinking water.

The ADOT vehicles and equipment will be sold on an “as-is, where-is” basis. More information about the auction, including an item list, is available at
