TULSA, Okla. – The City of Tulsa will hold its surplus property auction on Saturday, Nov. 6, at 9 a.m.
Approximately 75 bicycles will be the first items sold. Auctioning of vehicles and other items is expected to begin at or near 10 a.m.
Merchandise will be available for viewing on Friday, Nov. 5 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The site will open at 7:30 a.m. on Saturday for viewing merchandise before the sale begins.
The sale will be held at the City’s surplus property facility, 108 N. Trenton Avenue. That site is two blocks north and one block west of the I-244 and Utica Avenue intersection.
Surplus vehicles including buses, trucks, cars and vans, as well as tools, office equipment and furniture and miscellaneous equipment, bicycles and some police property-room items will be included in the sale.
All sales are “as is.” It is the bidder’s responsibility to determine the condition and quality of merchandise. Three auctioneers may be selling simultaneously, so bidders wanting to bid on multiple items should bring a partner/proxy.
Cash, MasterCard and Visa cards are accepted. Checks can be accepted only if accompanied by a letter of guaranty from the financial institution on which the check is drawn. Payment is required in full within one hour after the auction ends. Sales are subject to applicable local and state taxes, unless a sales tax permit is provided with proof of regular engagement in the re-sale business only for items purchased. An Oklahoma Tax Commission auditor may be present.
Lending services will be available at the auction site from representatives of the Tulsa Municipal Employees Federal Credit Union.
No one under the age of 16 may be admitted onto the City surplus property facility grounds. Questions about the auction can be directed to the City of Tulsa’s Finance Department at 596-7233.
