Bargain Basement Prices at County Vehicle Auction

Don’t wait for Black Friday for low, low prices. The County’s latest public vehicle auction begins Monday, Nov. 7 and many bids start at $100.

Hundreds of surplus vehicles, including automobiles and heavy equipment, and surplus government property from the County and other local agencies are going on the auction block.

You can find everything from Ford Escape hybrids to Ford Crown Victorias, Ford Taurus models from 2002 to 2008 and a wide range of Ford F350 trucks, Explorers and vans.

Looking for something a bit different? How does a food truck sound? Or a motor home or even a school bus?

There is an asphalt paver up for auction and a street sweeper for good measure. And you just never know when you might need a 10-wheel tractor or a loadrunner trailer.

You can check out these items in person, kick the tires so to speak, when they go on display from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 12 at 369 Main Street, Ramona, CA, 92065.

But you can register to bid for the auction online starting Monday, Nov. 7 at 8 a.m. It closes at 1 p.m. the following Monday, Nov. 14.
