Quotes were opened Monday evening for two ¾ ton pick-up trucks for the Plymouth Utility Superintendent during the Board of Public Works and Safety meeting.
Oliver Ford quoted a new 2022 or newer 3/4-ton pick-up truck with a base bid of $37,573. The trade in value of a 2010 Ford F150 was $6,000 making the net quote $31,573.
Oliver Ford offered a second quote for a 2022 or newer ¾-ton pick-up truck for a base bid of $35,310. There was a $1,000 trade in value for a 2001 Ford F250 bringing the net amount to $34,310.
Oliver Ford’s quote did mention the micro-chip shortage.
The Auto Park Buick GMC also quoted on the ¾ ton pick-ups. They sent quotes to the Water Department and to the Clerk’s Office.
They offered a quote for a 2022 or newer ¾-ton pick-up truck at $39,134.25 for the base bid with an $8,000 trade-in value of a 2010 F150 for a net quote of $31,134.25.
The second quote was for a 2022 or newer ¾-ton pick-up truck with a base quote of $38,214.40 less the trade-in value of $2,000 for a 2001 Ford F250 making the bottom line $36,214.40.
The second set of bids were no duplicates, so the City Attorney read those bids too.
They quoted a 2022 or newer ¾-ton pick-up truck with a base quote of $53,122.00 and an $8,000 trade in value for a 2010 F150 making a base quote of $45,122.
Auto Park’s final quote was $47,610 after the trade in value.
Utility Superintendent Donny Davidson asked to have the quotes taken under advisement. He will report back to the Board of Public Works and Safety at their meeting on February 28th with his recommendation.
