1994 Thomas Built Bus For Bid

By: City of Bondurant
Date Published: Wednesday, May 9, 2018

The City of Bondurant Emergency Services has available for sealed bid sale a 1994 Thomas Built Bus, formally used by the local school district and has been repurposed by the fire department for scene support and transport of loose equipment, firefighters to and from scene as well as serving as a Rehab unit on the fire ground during large scale events. This vehicle has served the fire department well and is being sold as a result of space needs for an additional ambulance being placed in service. It was originally school bus yellow and has been painted red to match the department color scheme. The red flashing lights have been disconnected with the stop arm removed. It has not been modified in any other way and the hydraulic wheelchair lift is in working condition. It is a diesel engine with a block heater. It is also equipped with an additional heater under the passenger seating. It also has the tracking in place for wheelchair tie downs. The unit has 103,407 miles on it at the time of this posting. It will continue to be utilized as needed until sold so the mileage could increase slightly between the time of posting and the time of sell, if needed on a scene. Prior to the sale of the vehicle all Bondurant decals will be removed.

The vehicle is being sold as is with no guarantees implied and may contain defects not immediately detectable. Bidders may inspect the property prior to bidding. Inspection is by appointment only. For appointment or questions please contact Fire Chief Aaron Kreuder at 515-971-1282 or email akreuder@cityofbondurant.com.

Minimum bid accepted will be $1,000.00. Bids will be accepted until noon on May 25. Bids will be opened at 4:00 PM on May 25 and the winning bidder will be notified at that time.

Upon receiving the winning bid payment is expected within 5 business days, the vehicle will then be transferred to the buyer and removal of the property is expected at that time.

Sealed bids can be made at Bondurant City Hall, 200 2nd street NE, PO Box 37, Bondurant IA 50035
