Make us an offer we can’t refuse.

For the next two weeks, the City of Wagga Wagga’s impound car yard is open for business.

All makes and models have to go, with the 20 vehicles on the lot ranging from small cars to station wagons and utes.

Expressions of Interest (EOI) from potential buyers who would like to snap up a cheap second-hand car are open until 5pm, 15 June.

“All people need to do is make an offer on the vehicle they are interested in. If they have the highest offer at the end of the EOI period, then the car is theirs,” Manager Environment and City Compliance Mark Gardiner said.

Potential buyers just need to bid on a vehicle that has been impounded by the City in the past 12 months. All cars are unregistered, have clear titles – meaning it is not under finance – and come with a bill of sale certificate.

Purchasers will need to arrange transport for their vehicles as they do not come with keys. It is encouraged that potential purchasers wanting to register a vehicle organises a mechanical check prior to sale.

“If you think you might be interested in one of the cars, check it out on our website, and then head down to the lot at one of the viewing times to see the car first hand,” Mr Gardiner said.

“If you are still interested after having a look, then put forward your offer.”

There are also 40 miscellaneous shopping trolleys for purchase, which can be repurposed for a range of uses, such as in the garden or the shed.

Money raised from the abandoned car and trolley auction becomes general-purpose revenue, and is utilised to support the delivery of services and maintenance of facilities.

The cars can be viewed at the impound lot located at the Glenfield Road Animal Shelter on Glenfield Road from 3pm to 4.30pm on Tuesday 30 May, Friday 2 June, Tuesday 6 June and Friday 9 June.

All cars, and the EOI form, are listed online at
