The minimum offer that will be accepted for these vehicles/equipment is listed next to them.

As with previous auctions, the University will be accepting minimum bids and maximum bids. This auction will work similar to an eBay auction. We will accept your minimum bid as the lowest offer. If more than one person bids on an item, we will alternate through the bidders (based on when bids are received) at $5 increments until we have a winner. If there are multiple high offers, those individuals will be contacted and asked to make another offer.

Please keep in mind that these vehicles are being offered “as is” with no implied warranties or statements of their condition.
