FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — The City of Fort St. John will be hosting an auction this Friday, featuring vehicles that have been impounded up on the auction block.
The City’s Bylaw Enforcement Department is holding their annual impounded vehicle auction on Friday at the impound lot near the Public Works yard. A total of 20 vehicles are up for public auction, including small cars, vans, SUVs and trucks.
Communications Coordinator Julie Rogers says that the city doesn’t have information on the vehicle’s histories and that the vehicles usually don’t have a set of ignition keys, so successful bidders will have to arrange for transportation their new vehicle. The City also says that no refunds will be provided on any of the vehicles up for auction, which are to be sold as-is.
Would-be buyers can show up at the impound yard at 10303 Beaver Road in Fort St. John to register and grab a bidder card at 11:45 a.m. and take a few moments to view the vehicles before bidding starts at 12:15 p.m. Successful bidders will need to make their payments via cash, debit or credit card at City Hall immediately after the auction.
