On November 2, the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) will conduct a vehicle auction in the Kilindini area.
Over 150 vehicles and several other excesses and unusable things were put up for sale in a notice posted by the government agency on Sunday, October 30.
Volkswagen Tiguans, Mazda Demios, Toyota Hiace, Subaru Imprezas, Toyota Prados, Land Cruisers, Mercedes-Benzes, Land Rover Range Rovers, BMWs, and Audis are just some of the makes and models represented.
In addition, there are a wide variety of other vehicles available, such as the Suzuki Swift, Subaru outbacks, Mazdas, Rover Sport S, Toyota Spade, Subaru Forester, Toyota Hilux, and others.
Besides vehicles, additional things include food, clothes, medical tools, building supplies, furniture, electronics, and even sound systems for homes.
All prospective bidders were urged to review the whole list, which was published in Gazette notice Volume CXXIV-No.200.
Typically, the prices are kept secret until the day of the auction, when they are revealed to the public.
Learn the Ins and Outs of Bidding
Auction participants must show up in person at the Customs Warehouse on Monday, October 31, or Tuesday, November 1, to place their bids.
Thereafter, they will be given a list of pricing for the available vehicles and other merchandise. A banker’s check representing a refundable deposit, which is proportional to the model of the car, must be presented in order to be assigned a bidding number.
The winning bidder gets to take home the vehicle (or whatever else is up for auction).
