Durham auctions its aging goods

Vehicles such as these will be sold at the upcoming Durham Region auction.

Durham Region is preparing for its 45th annual auction. Various items including vehicles, office equipment and televisions will be available.

The auction begins with a preview on Friday, Sept. 29. Buyers can inspect the items to see what they like. Bidding itself starts the next day at 9:30 a.m. after another viewing at 8 a.m.

Bidding will take place at the Durham Region Works Depot at 825 Conlin Rd. in Whitby. The Works Depot is on the East side of the Conlin-Thickson intersection.

The items for sale have reached the end of their lifespans for Durham. Regular vehicles are between seven and ten years old. Heavy machinery will be younger, while office equipment may be older. The proceeds from the auction will go to replacing the sold equipment and funding operations.

Sales can be made in both cash and debit. A $500 deposit can be placed on more expensive item. Items on hold must be picked up and paid off by October Oct. 2. Payments can be made by cash, debit, cheque or bank draft.

Desks, chairs, tables, cabinets, cars, SUVs, trucks, generators, saws, lawn and kitchen equipment and televisions will be available.

All items will be sold in their current condition. They have not been inspected and come without warranties.
