CITY OF MIDLAND SURPLUS VEHICLE AND EQUIPMENT AUCTIONS

 

May 11, 2012 – City of Midland cars, trucks, and other commercial items and equipment previously sold at an annual “live” auction each fall will now be sold throughout the year utilizing an online auction service. 

 

The City has chosen the Michigan Inter-governmental Trade Network Surplus Auction service to dispose of excess items that are no longer needed.  Vehicles of various makes and models will be auctioned off in addition to items such as shop equipment and auto parts.  The online service will allow the City to more effectively notify vendors of bidding opportunities, while increasing efficiency and lowering City costs through shared resources.

 

For a list of auction items from the City of Midland and more than 90 other Michigan governmental agencies, go to www.mitn.info and choose “SURPLUS AUCTION” from the title bar.  Registered bidders can choose to be notified by e-mail when items in over 35 categories are listed for auction. 

 

Terms of sale may vary and will be part of each item listing.

 

Revenue generated from the auction will become part of the City of Midland General Fund and Equipment Revolving Fund.
