Oct. 25: SSMMA partners with NWMC & other COGS for surplus vehicle and equipment auction

From the Northwest Municipal Conference (NWMC):

The Northwest Municipal Conference (NWMC) and America’s Auto Auction (America’s AA), Chicago are pleased to announce that the next NWMC live auction will be held: Tuesday, October 25, 2016 1:00 p.m. Americas Auto Auction, Chicago 14001 S. Karlov Avenue Crestwood, IL 60554

The NWMC/ America’s AA agreement provides for additional sales opportunities and methods for NWMC/SSMMA members, streamlines the auction process for buyers and sellers and saves NWMC/SSMMA members time and money in disposing of their equipment while supporting the operations of the organization.

The live NWMC Surplus Vehicle and Equipment auctions are held on a semi-annual basis at America’s AA in Crestwood. Their 40-acre, state-of-the-art facility provides full service auctions for their existing dealer network, the general public and online/simulcast bidders. Please visit their website for more information on America’s AA services.

America’s AA Commercial Account Manager, Bruce Uhter or NWMC sales representative Jim Fee will be contacting all NWMC, SSMMA and other councils of governments (COGs) to discuss the program in detail. A few of the advantages to holding the NWMC Auctions at America’s AA include:

• Transportation of vehicles to America’s AA at any time, 24/7 – no need to store your vehicles until the day prior to the NWMC auction. • America’s AA will provide all drivers on auction day (except for some specialty vehicles); therefore, NWMC/SSMMA members will not incur overtime costs for staff to work at the NWMC Auctions. • America’s AA can arrange to transport vehicles through third party providers at a lower cost than having NWMC/SSMMA members pull employees off the job site. • America’s AA offers a variety of additional services designed to maximize resale value including vehicle condition reports, reconditioning/repair services, dent removal, window replacement, washing, etc. • Pre-sale inventory listings on are viewed by thousands of potential purchasers • No NWMC/SSMMA public works facilities will be inconvenienced by hosting the event.

The agreement also provides for year-round Internet auctions, allowing NWMC members to remarket vehicles and equipment quickly and easily to America’s AA extensive network of buyers. For more information, please contact: Bruce Uhter (219) 713-0327 (mobile), 708-389-4488 (office),, or Jim Fee (773) 315-0293,
