Cool Stuff Available at State Auctions

Cool Stuff Available at State Auctions

If you are tired of paying retail prices for the things you want and need, you may want to look into auctions – state and federal – for office furniture, cars, trucks, boats, and sometimes even real estate.

The equipment, vehicles, and other items that end up selling for ridiculously low prices come from a variety of sources. You can get really cool cars, trucks, and boats that have been seized by the police; game wardens; The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (federal government auctions); and other government agencies and departments.

There are also big-ticket items like vehicles and smaller items available through surplus property auctions. Often, when the state has a big project like a grant that it is working on, they will purchase office equipment and/or furniture that they need in order to get their special project completed on time. Then, guess what? They have all this stuff that they no longer need or want, so they put it up for sale at auction.

There can be almost anything at some of these public auctions. Firearms, copiers, computers, cars, boats, planes, trucks, golf carts, jewelry, furniture, electronics, and sometimes even designer clothes and real estate can be found. The secret, of course, is in knowing where to look.

Many people do not realize that these federal and state auctions exist, but for those who are in the know, the values and bargains can be incredible, so if you are thinking about getting a sporty little car to tool around in on the weekends or looking for an awesome vehicle for your teenager’s graduation gift, it just makes sense to check out state auctions. If you are trying to refurnish your office, there might be great office equipment available for an even greater price.

With the advent of the Internet and online access, you can sometimes even place bids right from your own computer at home or in the office. For convenience and true bargains, you really can’t beat the thrill of winning the perfect item at state auction. Not only do you get what you have been searching all over the world for, but you have a great time in the bidding process. Your daughter may think that shopping at the mall is fun, but she doesn’t know what she is missing by not getting in on the federal or state auctions.

It may even make sense to look into an auction membership. There are some sites that offer all the information you need for a modest annual fee; that means you can get to the auction sites easily and add to the convenience of the whole concept even more. Don’t go to the overpriced used car lot or marine store next time you are in the market for a vehicle; instead, check out auctions—state or federal.
