City of Yuma Surplus Property Auction

Vehicles, bicycles among items for sale

Yuma, Ariz. – The next City of Yuma Public Auction will be held 9 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 21 at the city’s surplus property warehouse, 190 W. 14th St.

Miscellaneous items up for bids include, but are not limited to, the following: Office supplies, organizers, office equipment, desks, filing cabinets, desk chairs, display cases, shelving, tools, televisions, vacuum cleaners, cameras, bicycles, computer equipment, kitchenware, jewelry, hand bags/purses, coins, foreign currency, pocket knives, power tools, hand tools, gun cases, metal doors, speakers, digital recorder, car stereos, surveying equipment, landscaping equipment, furniture, and more.

Items to be auctioned are generally in fair to good condition but are no longer needed due to such reasons as changes in staff, changes in usage or passing their budgeted life span. Other items came into City ownership through having become evidence in criminal cases.

All items in the City of Yuma Public Auction are sold “as is, where is,” and must be picked up the same day. Bidders and buyers should also be aware of the following:

  • No items have been authenticated; unless a certificate indicating otherwise came with the property coming into City possession.
  • No warranty or guarantee is implied.
  • Buyer assumes all risk with purchase.
  • Absolutely no returns.
  • No items will leave the auction area until they have been paid in full.
  • Bidder is responsible for item(s) after award. Bidder buys it, bidder loads it. The City is not responsible for any items once sold.
  • Vehicles and other large equipment can only be removed at the completion of the auction.

Those wishing to examine items available for bidding and/or to register for participation in the auction can do so at the city yard between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Friday, Nov. 20.

Those who wish to participate in the Nov. 21 auction should arrive between 7 a.m. and 9 a.m. that morning to register. Registration is free to participants. Gates open at 7 a.m. that Saturday. Registration will also be taken during the Friday viewing.

Bidders are advised to please note a 10 percent buyer's premium and 8.412 percent sales tax.
