State Fleet AuctionFRANKFORT, Ky. (3/23/13) – Nearly 175 vehicles, including more than 60 cargo and passenger vans, are being retired from the state motor pool and will be auctioned off March 26. Approximately 100 used tires, not usually offered at auction, will also be sold.
 
The public auction begins at 10 a.m. at the State Service Garage, 513 Barrett St. in Frankfort.
 
“Each year the state turns over part of its vehicle inventory,” said Pete McDonald, director, Kentucky Division of Fleet Management. “Many individuals and organizations can benefit from buying a low-cost car, truck or van at the auction.”
 
This is the first fleet sale of the year. Vehicles range over years, makes and models, from 1995 to 2007. Vehicles have been categorized with a status of either “runners” or “non-runners.” One of the oldest vehicles on the runner list is a 1995 Ford E350 Club Wagon with 87,178 miles. One of the newer runner status vehicles is a 2006 Ford Expedition with 111,834 miles. Almost 30 vehicles are classified as non-runners to be sold as salvage.
 
“Over the years, we’ve seen businesspeople, churches, non-profit agencies and many others buy vehicles at our surplus property auctions,” said Danny Ford, director of the Division of Surplus Properties. “Whether you need a farm truck or a van, you may be able to find something suitable and affordable.”
 
In 2012 the average sale price of running vehicles was $2,886.46.
 
People interested in the auction may pre-register and inspect the vehicles from 1:30 - 4 p.m., Monday, March 25. 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
 
Full payment is due within one hour after the last item is sold. Payment can be made with cash; cashiers, certified, or travelers checks; money order or personal check with proper identification. Any check over $5,000 must be accompanied by a letter of credit from the bank.
