All of Government Vehicle Auction

On the 23 May 2015 the Ministry of Finance and Economic Management will be holding a whole of Government auction for a number of vehicles which are surplus to requirements. The auction will be located at the Ministry of Justice carpark and will be run by Mr John Kenning. All government vehicles for auction will be moved to the Justice building before the 18 May 2015 and an open inspection day for all vehicles to the public will be held on the 22 May 2015. All vehicles will be groomed and ready for sale as they will be sold by auction “as is basis” on the day to the highest bidder. A list of vehicles will be provided on the MFEM website or from the Senior Procurement Officer which will contain a photo and specifications. There are some simple rules in regard to the Auction:


  • By bidding, you are stating that you are ready and willing to purchase that item for your bid amount, plus pay for change of ownership. If you are outbid you are under no obligation to buy. But in all other cases, you are entering a contract with the Government to buy the item, and to deliver payment immediately at the close of the auction. If you can't pay, on time, don't bid! At the drop of the hammer your bid is final and is non-retractable.
  • Change of ownership fees must be paid by the winning bidder along with the bid price at the close of the auction.
  • All vehicles must be removed from the site at the close of the auction.
  • All vehicles are sold without reserve and are sold as is where is. The Government takes no responsibility for the condition of any vehicle. You are responsible for inspecting the vehicle and determining an appropriate bid.
