Get in Gear for County’s Vehicle Auction

Bidding begins Monday, May 15 for the County’s next vehicle auction but you can jump online now to see what’s going up on the block.

Dozens of vehicles ranging from Ford Crown Victorias, Ford Escapes, Ford trucks and a Toyota Tundra are available. Some not-so-typical vehicles are up for bid, too. Need a remote-controlled car? Parts for a ’65 Ford Mustang? An off-road vehicle perhaps? A sweeper, box trucks and school buses are also up for grabs.

The surplus vehicles and government property come from the County and other local agencies. Bids start at only $100.

You can register for the auction online starting at 8 a.m. Monday, May 15. The auction closes at 1 p.m. the following Monday, May 22.

If you’d like to check out the vehicles in person, stop by 369 Main Street in Ramona from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday, May 19. Another preview takes place 8 a.m. to noon on Monday, May 22.
