REVEALED: 50+ abandoned Mackay vehicles in need of owners
TIME is running out for the owners of more than 50 vehicles, as Mackay Regional Council sets its sights on clearing the region of abandoned cars.
The council has released a list of 55 impounded cars, utes, trailers and vans that will go to public auction unless they are claimed within the month.
Among the many cars netted in the clean-up haul, there was one unusual catch — an unclaimed boat from Bucasia.
Nearly a quarter of all the abandoned vehicles were found in just two suburbs, Mackay and North Mackay.
Owners — or someone claiming a right to possession of the vehicle — can secure them prior to auction.
A council spokesperson said vehicles had to be reclaimed by Tuesday, November 5.
Unclaimed vehicles will go under the hammer at a public auction, which starts at 9am on Tuesday, November 19, at the council’s Ness Street Depot.
Hopeful buyers can gain access to a public viewing of the vehicles on Friday, November 15 between 3pm and 4pm.
While those looking for a bargain will surely find one — with many cars at the last public auction selling for less than $5 — buyers should be aware that the council offers no warranties and accepts no responsibility for the condition of the vehicles.
At the July auction the most expensive sale was a blue Holden Commodore sedan that sold for $1200.
The cheapest was a white Toyota LiteAce van that sold for $1.
