KY's State Fleet Auction Coming Tuesday
FRANKFORT, Ky. – (Oct. 15, 2012) –If you’re looking for a well-used car, truck, van or SUV, then the state fleet auction on Oct. 16 may be just for you. The auction begins at 10 a.m. and will be held at the State Service Garage, 513 Barrett Street in Frankfort.
On Tuesday, more than 200 vehicles, ranging over years, makes and models, are on the auction block. Vehicles have been categorized with a status of either “clean” or “salvage.” The oldest clean status vehicle is a 1994 Chevy Blazer with 70,126 miles. The newest clean status vehicle is a 2007 Dodge Ram truck with 103,251 miles. Almost 50 vehicles are classified as salvage. Average miles for these vehicles are 120,027 with the highest mileage exceeding 200,000.
“Each year our fleet management team identifies vehicles that have no more useful life for state government,” said Pete McDonald, director of the Division of Fleet Management. “Annually, we retire all sorts of vehicles that people consider to still have value. So, fleet auctions are fairly popular.”
In 2010 the average sale price of running vehicles was $2687.50 and in 2012 the average was $2886.46.
People interested in the auction may pre-register and inspect the vehicles from 1:30 – 4:00 p.m. on Monday, October 15, 2012.
