Construction vehicles, heavy-duty equipment, cars, trucks and SUVs will all be for sale at this Saturday’s Wayne County surplus auction.

David Banka, equipment director for the public services department, said there are some unique items up for auction this year, including a couple of trailers with showers inside that were formerly used by Homeland Security.

“You could be a person buying a car for yourself, a pickup truck, small business entrepreneur, some great opportunities,” Banka said.

The auction at Martin’s Towing in Brownstown Township will feature 119 items from Wayne County and 140 from other local municipalities, including brand new Apple laptops, and dozens of pieces of jewelry.

“Everything of course is sold as-is, and there’s a $200 fee to bid on things that will go toward your purchase. It’s refundable if you don’t make a purchase,” Banka said.

Proceeds will go directly back to the department each item came from. Method of payment is cash or cashier’s check only.

You can register at Martin’s Towing on Dix-Toledo Road.

The public is welcome to preview the auction from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Friday. The auction begins at 10:00 a.m. Saturday.
