Preview underway for state vehicle auction

Written by Matt Paul and Radio Pennsylvania | Feb 22, 2014 5:20 AM

(Harrisburg) -- The state Department of General Services will hold its first vehicle auction of the year, Tuesday, in Grantville, Dauphin County.

Spokesman Troy Thompson says more than 400 vehicles, including ATVs and snowmobiles, will be on the auction block.

"These are all vehicles used by state agencies that are no longer using the vehicles -- or some of them have been seized by law enforcement agencies, such as the Acura, Cadillac and Mercedes Benz," he explains.

A preview period is already underway at Manheim Central Penn Auto Auction in Dauphin County.

Detailed listings are also posted online.

    Great review. I think buying a used motor vehicle from a trader, enter you into a legally binding contract. You are entitled to expect that the vehicle is of satisfactory quality, fit for purpose, and as described. An older vehicle with high mileage may not be as good as a newer vehicle with low mileage, but it should still be fit for use on the road and in a condition that reflects its age and price.
