It's "Sold to the highest bidder!" at the City of Toronto Public Auction on

Bidding starts at 9:30 a.m., however interested buyers can have a 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

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,

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