City to Auction Surplus Property
Items the City of Tulsa will sell include vehicles, heavy equipment and office supplies, plus property confiscated by police.
Items “vary from a violin, to electric toothbrushes, to a Rolex watch,” said Lara Weber, spokeswoman for the City of Tulsa.
The auction will begin 9:30 a.m. Saturday at 108 N. Trenton Avenue.
You can preview items in person from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday.
You can also view items as well as register for the auction and submit bids online at http://joepippinauctioneers.com.
Weber says online bidders who want to make sure they’re not outbid should also attend the live auction.
She also says if you might want to bid on more than one item at a time, it would be best to bring a proxy, since up to three auctioneers may be selling at the same time.
Preferred payment methods are cash and Visa or Mastercard.
Weber says this twice-yearly event is not a bad scene for bargain hunters.
“There are some minimum bids on some items, but it’s very competitive,” she said. “You can get a good deal.”
