Surplus items sorted in lots; minimum bids set for sale

The surplus auction at the old Pierce County High School will take place this Saturday, November 14.

Maintenance director Harbin Farr reported at last week’s school board work session that a contract has been signed with Hansford Auction and Realty of Waycross. Hansford is currently sorting through the surplus items, taking photos and arranging them into lots.   

Hansford has placed an ad detailing the auction items in this week’s edition.

The auction is also being advertised in other local newspapers in southeast Georgia and northeast Florida.

Hansford will conduct a day long sale at the old high school. They will set a minimum and then auction off the items throughout the school. Hansford will be paid from a 10 percent buyers premium added on to the bids.

There is no estimate on how much the sale will generate in revenues.
