City Auctioning Vehicles, Equipment

The City of Tulsa will sell 200 vehicles at an auction beginning at 10 a.m. Dec. 12 at the City’s surplus property facility at 108 N. Trenton Ave.
Police cruisers, minivans, full-sized vans, pickup trucks and sport utility vehicles, plus heavy equipment such as tractors, dump trucks, flat-bed trucks and other rolling stock, will be put up for auction.
Vehicles may be inspected on Friday, Dec. 11 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. On Saturday, Dec. 12, the auction site will open at 8 a.m.
Mayor Kathy Taylor requested a study of vehicles and equipment that could be sold to reduce operating costs. In all, the city reduced the fleet by 239 vehicles and 200 of those will be auctioned. The move is part of Tulsa’s “High Performance Government” initiative and cost-reduction measures.
Cash, Mastercard and Visa cards are accepted at the auction. 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.
