ADOT auctions moving online

By Angeline Carbajal / Tucson News Now intern

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Bidders will see a major change as the Arizona Department of Transportation makes the switch to online auctions of the agency’s surplus items beginning July 1.

The first online auction will begin at 3 p.m. and will run for approximately two weeks.

ADOT’s surplus equipment will now be posted frequently online throughout the year as items become available. Before the switch, ADOT held two public auctions each year at an equipment yard in Phoenix.

Anyone interested in participating online must register for free at publicsurplus.com. Select Arizona as the region and ADOT as the participating agency.

Each item will include a description, photos and details of any known issues.

Those interested in scheduling an appointment to inspect items during each auction period can contact ADOT Fleet Management at (602) 712-6508. Details on how to schedule an appointment are listed on the auction website.

Winning bidders will receive an email notification and have five days to pay and pick up the items at the ADOT Equipment Services Yard at 2225 S. 22nd Ave. in Phoenix.

All ADOT vehicles and equipment are auctioned and sold on an as-is basis.
