FLORENCE – Are you searching for a gift for that hard-to-shop-for-person in your life? Pinal County may have what you are looking for.
Beginning on Friday, December 11, the county will begin selling used and surplus items through an online auction site.
Finance Director Levi Gibson said there will be items ranging from used computers to heavy equipment for sale on the site
. The public will have 14 days to bid on items the highest bidder will win the auction. The heavy equipment will have a 28 day bid window. The person who wins the bidding process will have to come to Pinal County to pick up their items.
‘Most items that are being replaced will be on the site,’ Gibson said. ‘All items will be sold ‘as is’. No guarantees or warranties on the equipment sold.’
The money earned from the online auction will go into a capital replacement fund for various equipment purchases. If the item sold is a used truck, the money from the auction would be designated to the capital replacement fund for vehicles.
Registration for the auction site is free of charge. Any items sold will have a 10 percent buyer’s premium charge, along with the Town of Florence sales tax of 8.7 percent.
