In one of its biggest auctions to date, the City of La Vergne has placed 41 items – including fire trucks, cars, SUVs, and trucks – up for auction on GovDeals. Bidders will have through Monday, April 14 at 8:00 a.m. to bid on the items that also include speakers, romance novels, furniture, televisions, audio books, and more.
Vehicles to be sold include a 1994 International 4900 fire truck, a 1985 Mack MC686FC fire truck, a 2003 Nissan Xterra XE 4WD, a 1992 Cadillac Deville Sedan, and a 2001 Chevrolet Tahoe 4WD.
City Administrator Bruce Richardson says the Board of Mayor and Aldermen reviews items the city no longer needs and determines if they can be sold as surplus. He says all items auctioned are sold as-is and where-is, so it is up to the buyer to research and inspect the item prior to bidding.
Buyers can bid on surplus city assets after registering and logging in. Like other online auction sites, the items are available for a specific period of time. The highest bidder will win unless the auction reserve has not been met. Payment may now be made online through the GovDeals website.
Contact information to view items prior to bidding is listed on each item. For more information, go to the city web page at www.lavergnetn.gov, click on the “Services” tab and go to “Government Auctions.”
