FORT RUCKER, Ala. -- The transient nature of military service can often leave Soldiers and families with personal items they can't bring along, but an on-post facility exists to help minimize that pain by providing a venue to sell excess property.
Fort Rucker's Lemon Lot is used by Soldiers and authorized patrons to sell their privately-owned boats, cars, recreational vehicles, motorcycles, trucks, all-terrain vehicles and tow trailers to anyone who has access to Fort Rucker.
The area, which is paved and gated, is in a prime location making it the perfect spot to sell a vehicle, according to Darryle Jones, DFMWR's community recreation chief. The price to place an item in the lot varies depending on how large the item is and spaces are available for rent by the month.
"Each person wishing to sell their vehicle on the lot must provide their registration, and a title or bill of sale prior to a vehicle being placed on the lot," Jones said. Patrons must register in person at the Fort Rucker Arts and Crafts Center to place their vehicle on the Lemon Lot.
"There are many benefits of selling a vehicle on the Lemon Lot," he said. "The most notable is that clients usually walk away happy."
"If anyone is in the market to buy or sell a vehicle they should visit the Lemon Lot," he added. " The Lemon Lot is located on Andrews Avenue between the Soldier Service Center and Army and Air Force Exchange Service gas station towards Enterprise beside the motorcycle safety course lot."
Patrons are urged to visit the lot on more than one occasion, since the inventory frequently changes and good deals usually go quickly.
The Lemon Lot is open to the public; however, a gate access pass is required. Unescorted visitors music obtain a visitor's pass from one of two visitor control centers.
Visitors may obtain passes from VCCs at the Daleville and Ozark gates. The Daleville VCC is open Mondays-Sundays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Ozark VCC is open Mondays-Fridays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
