Bargain buys at City of Toronto public auction Hundreds of items for sale on Saturday, May 10
It's "Sold to the highest bidder!" at the City of Toronto Public Auction on
Saturday, May 10 at the Queen Elizabeth Exhibit Hall, Exhibition Place.

Bidding starts at 9:30 a.m., however, interested buyers can have a sneak
preview of the articles up for grabs beginning at 8 a.m. Vehicles go on sale at
10:30 a.m.

Big-ticket items and motorized equipment can be held with a deposit of $300
payable by cash, debit card, certified cheque, MasterCard or Visa (a two per
cent premium will be added to all purchases over $1,000, if paying by credit
card) with the balance payable prior to pick-up. Purchases can be picked up
after the auction on Saturday, May 10, Sunday, May 11 or Monday, May 12 between
8 a.m. and 5 p.m. All purchases must be picked up by 5 p.m. on Monday, May 12.

This giant, semi-annual auction offers the public a great opportunity to pick
up some real bargains. Items to go on the block include office equipment, cars,
trucks, and lawn equipment and bicycles.

Organized by the Purchasing and Materials Management Division of City of
Toronto Finance, the auction earns money for the municipal government and finds
new homes for hundreds of goods no longer needed by the City of Toronto.
