This auction will consist of about 100 lots that Rick Battaglia used in his auto repair business for nearly 40 years. This auction will be for the professional as well as for the backyard mechanic. Many of the items to be sold are large and heavy and some are still attached to the floor or walls. The winning bidder is solely responsible for removing the items from their locations. Some of the tool chests and cabinets are full of contents. The winning bidders may take or leave any of the contents of their purchases.
