The Fleet Services Department maintains the city's fleet of more than 1,400 vehicles and equipment (from squad cars to fire trucks and snow plows) which city employees use to deliver many essential public services. 


Fleet Services also maintains the city's Vehicle Impoundment Lot on Vice Mayor Jack Sharp Rd. in East Knoxville. Approximately 6,000 vehicles a year are processed through this lot. To contact the lot, please call 865-215-6215 or send an email to [email protected]. Lot is open seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. only. Open 24/7 for phone calls and intake of vehicles by wreckers.

Along with other surplus city equipment, vehicles and unclaimed impounded vehicles are sold at public auctions held when inventory warrants. Look for information on these public auctions in the daily newspaper, on the radio, on television and this web site.
