DOT to auction heavy-equipment in Mount Airy

Mount Airy, N.C. — The North Carolina Department of Transportation will auction over 200 pieces of used equipment at the Veterans Memorial Park on Wednesday. 

Tractors, pick-up trucks and backhoes will be up for auction.  On Tuesday, DOT provided a preview  for interested buyers and Quentin Brown liked what he saw.

“Everything out here has been taken care of.  It’s been serviced, you will get a good deal — come on out and buy,” said Brown.

DOT supervisior Jim Adams says on average the auctions bring in $1 million.

“It’s an auction,” said Adams, “that money rolls back into our equipment unit to purchase new equipment”

Registration begins at 8 a.m. with the auction beginning at 9 a.m. Wednesday morning. 

All purchases must be paid in full by cashier’s check, money order or cash.  All equipment is sold “as is” and all sales are final.
