Wheels and Deals at County Auction

Looking for new wheels? At least, new to you? The County’s public auction in Ramona Saturday may have exactly what you need at a price you can afford. Many bids start at just $100.

Hundreds of surplus vehicles, including automobiles and heavy equipment, and surplus government property from the County and other local agencies will be up for bid. Among the  vehicles going on the auction block are:  a 2008 Toyota 4 Runner, a 2005 Honda Odyssey Van, 2005 Toyota Prius Hybrid, 2008 Dodge Durango, 2006 Chevrolet Impala and 2005 through 2009 Ford Crown Victoria patrol cars.  

Maybe you’re in the market for a truck? Check out the pickup trucks on hand, or expand your business with the help of 1-ton cargo vans. Browse around and you’ll find school buses, a 1989 W14 Case Loader, a 1991 Caterpillar Loader and a 1992 Volvo Refer Truck. You’ll also see motor graders, pup dumps, graders, backhoes, and well, you get the idea. All are up for bid.
