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
payable by cash, debit card, certified cheque, Master Card or Visa (2% premium
will be added to all purchases if paying by credit card), with the balance
payable prior to pick-up. Purchases can be picked up after the auction on

8 a.m. and 5 p.m. All purchases must be picked up by 5 p.m. on Monday, May 16.

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.

Organized by the City of Toronto’s 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.
