The City has a need for the purchase and delivery of one (1) used front end loader (the “Good”).  The Good is to be in good operating condition that meets or exceeds the City’s preferred technical specifications.  Only a standard production machine should be quoted, and the Contractor will not be permitted to modify the Good to meet the preferred specifications.

The Good can be of any manufacture.  The City will consider a demonstrator Good or a lightly used Good with minimal engine hours, and full factory warranty.  The City may consider Quotations that deviate to some extent from the Specifications if it proves to be in the best interest of the City to do so.

Contractor may submit multiple Quotations in the event that several units meeting the preferred Specifications are available.  A separate Schedule B – Form of Quotation should be completed in full for each Good.


Schedule A-1 – Preferred Technical Specifications sets out the preferred technical specifications (the “Specifications”).  Brochures or additional specifications may be attached as supplemental information.

The services include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Supply and delivery of one (1) used front end loader;
  • Good pre-delivery inspection and servicing, subject to inspection and acceptance; and
  • Provision of post-delivery services and parts availability at a local dealer,

A qualified and responsible representative of the Contractor shall instruct City personnel in the operation, care and maintenance of the Good, during the pre-delivery inspection. All specifications, drawings, dimensions, warranty and quotations will be reviewed, enabling the City to align equipment within budget guidelines.


If the City determines that an amendment is required to this RFQ, the City Representative will issue a written addendum by posting it on the BC Bid website at and the City website at  (collectively, the “Websites”), and upon posting, any addenda will form a part of this RFQ.  It is the responsibility of Contractors to check the Websites for addenda.  The only way this RFQ may be added to, or amended in any way, is by a formal written addendum.  No other communication, whether written or oral, from any person will affect or modify the terms of this RFQ or may be relied upon by any Contractor.  By delivery of a Quotation the Contractor is deemed to have received, accepted and understood the entire RFQ, including any and all addenda.

All inquiries related to this RFQ should be directed in writing to the contact person named above.
