Property Description

The City of Bogalusa has deemed 40 surplus vehicles on its Industrial Park Lot as "scrap" vehicles.  The city seeks bids from professional haulers to remove the vehicles to scrap, recycling or parts yards or destinations.  The City of Bogalusa will accept only a positive price per vehicle and the hauler is expected to recoup its costs and profit by selling the vehicles for scrap or recyclables at the existing scrap market value.  The city will not expend any money to have the scrap vehicles hauled away.  The vehicles are worth scrap value only and are none operable and are not immediately repairable in their current state.  All vehicles are missing critical parts or components necessary to become safely operational, including engines and components, wheels/tires, catalytic converters and electronics.  The entire scrapped fleet will be sold to one hauler only and will not be divided up between bidders.  The highest bidder will enter into a cooperative contract with the City to remove the scrapped vehicles after paying the per vehicle bid price.  All sales are "where is, as is" without warranty.  A bill of sale will accompany each vehicle sold as well as any existing title.  The chosen Hauler must be knowledgeable of the requirements of scrapping vehicles without title.
