The second government surplus auction of 2013 will be held at 9 a.m. Saturday, May 18, at 4320 Stephanie St., off Flamingo Road near Dog Fancier’s Park.
The popular auctions feature vehicles, office equipment, lost and found electronics, and other items used or acquired by government agencies, including McCarran International Airport, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department and the area cities and state of Nevada.
A preview and registration period opens on-site three days before the auction from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. May 15 through 17. To register, participants need to present a valid ID. Payment is expected upon winning a bid. Accepted forms of payment include cash, cashier's checks, credit cards, debit cards, traveler's checks and money orders.
“Clark County is proud to host these auctions,” said David Johnson, manager of Clark County’s Automotive Division, which oversees the sales. “They are very popular with the public because people know they can get good deals on well-maintained vehicles and equipment. The sales also put revenue back into government budgets so they are good for taxpayers too.”
Clark County contracts with TNT Auction to manage the sales. A catalog of items being sold at auction gets posted on TNT’s website at www.tntauction.com
, and is updated regularly as the date of each sale approaches.
The vehicle portion of the auction occurs on-site and online simultaneously. Participants who plan to bid online for vehicles must register in advance of the sale online through TNT’s website. Anyone planning to participate in the live auction to bid on vehicles or any other merchandise must register in person on site to participate. Registration also helps you avoid long lines on auction day.
