[JUNE 18, 2004]  SPRINGFIELD -- The Illinois Department of Central Management Services announced Wednesday that approximately 150 late-model police and agency vehicles are to be auctioned off at its surplus vehicle sale Saturday, June 26, at the CMS Surplus Warehouse at 1924 S. 10 Street in Springfield.

"We encourage the public to join us as this is the last vehicle auction planned for 2004," said Curtis Howard, acting manager of CMS Property Control Division. "This is a great time of year to purchase a second vehicle or graduation present at a very reasonable price."

Registration will open at 7 a.m. and the sale will begin promptly at 9 a.m.

The vehicles will be available for inspection on Thursday, June 24, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.; on Friday, June 25, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and Saturday, June 26, from 7 a.m. to the beginning time of the sale. Keys will be available only on Thursday and Friday during the hours stated and will not be available on Saturday.

Vehicles are sold in "as is" condition, and all sales are final. There are no warranties or guarantees expressed or implied and no refunds or exchanges. Vehicles are sold individually.

Bidders may pay for purchases with VISA, MasterCard, cash, cashier's check, money orders or traveler's checks in increments of $100 or less. Business or personal checks are also accepted, but these checks must be supported by a letter of credit from a financial institution. The letters of credit must include the maximum amount of credit approved through a specific date and should also state that they cover the purchase price of state of Illinois property only. All letters of credit must be approved prior to the sale. Two types of identification must also be provided, including one with a photograph. The state reserves the right to reject any payment or identification of a bidder if it appears it may not be in the best interest of the state of Illinois.
