The online auction for a 2007 H3 Hummer, 2008 Chevrolet 3500, and 2008 Pontiac G6 is in progress and will end on February 19, additional items will be added to the auction including a 2014 John Deere Skid-steer, small trailer, lawnmower and more.
Please note that after the auction, winning bidders will be given a VTR-71 Auction Sales Receipt which can be used to obtain titles to any purchased vehicles. The trailer in the auction will come with a separate auction sales receipt, but TxDOT title rules indicate that any un-titled trailers auctioned will have to be inspected by an Auto-theft Task Force agent in order to get the proper documentation for title. This rule changed a few years back and will not allow the Local Agencies to fill out the form any longer, so please note that the process to get auctioned trailers titled takes a bit longer.
