Bargain buys at City of Toronto public auction
  
It’s "Sold to the highest bidder!" at the City of Toronto public auction on
Saturday, May 14 at the Queen Elizabeth Exhibit Hall, Exhibition Place.

Bidding starts at 9:30 a.m., though interested buyers can preview articles up
for sale starting 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 (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 May 14 auction,
either on Sunday, May 15 or Monday, May 16 between 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 include office equipment, cars, trucks, and lawn
equipment.

Organized by the City of Toronto, 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.

For more information, call M. Wilson & Co. at 1-888-205-3331 or check the
Auction Web site at www.mwilson.com.

Media preview is Thursday, May 12, 10 a.m. - 11 a. m. at the Queen Elizabeth
