Make us an offer we can’t refuse.
For the next two weeks, the Wagga Wagga City Council’s impound car yard is open for business.
All makes and models have to go, with the 31 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, 24 April.
“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.
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.”
Council recently donated some abandoned vehicles to TAFE NSW Wagga Wagga, where they are used by Automotive Refinishing and Body Repair students to develop their panel beating and spray painting skills. Any unsold vehicles suitable for TAFE NSW Wagga Wagga’s needs will again be gifted to the local campus.
Vehicles can be viewed from 3pm to 4pm on Tuesday 16 April and Thursday 18 April at 2 Glenfield Road (near the animal shelter).
