County Vehicle and Equipment Auction Nov. 17

Everything must go, from the massive 1981 Beal bottom-dump trailer to the 2008 Chevy Tahoe; a formerly luxurious Lincoln Navigator – even a thrifty little Toyota Camry. Walk the lot Nov. 17 during the one-hour bidders’ preview for a chance to kick the tires on an eclectic mix of 50 cars, trucks, tractors -- massive road maintenance equipment – and even a 1979 utility trailer listed on the auction inventory as “homemade.” The itemized list is below; preview photos online at

 Yes, Gila County’s having a good ‘Ol fashioned live auction of vehicles, and the rapid-fire “Hey, Bidder-Bidder!” patter of a guest auctioneer will nudge buyers at the Russel Gulch Landfill and also at the public Works Shop on Saturday Nov. 17. Prior to the start of the auction bidders must post a $100 deposit with the cashier to receive an official bidder number.
Failure to pay for items will forfeit that $100 security.  Bring cash, or cashier’s check – because credit cards and personal checks won’t be accepted. Bidders may walk the lot and preview items from 8:00 – 9:00 AM, then auction action begins at 9:30.  All items must be paid for on auction day – and purchases must be driven, towed or hauled away that same day, too. And that $100 you invested? Winning bidders will have $100 deducted from the sale of the item, with the bidder paying the balance -- or being refunded the difference. 
Onsite preview is limited to that golden hour from 8-9 a.m. Nov. 17, but prospective buyers can view photos and read more online at Items on the auction block:
