COLUMBUS (Oct. 6, 2017) – A Honda CB250N motorcycle, Yamaha TW200E motorcycle, 2005 GMC Sierra K3500 dump truck with a plow and spreader and a 1991 McKee Craft 17-foot boat with a 100-horsepower Johnson and trailer will be among the more than 190 vehicles up for bid at the next state surplus vehicle auction scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 14.

Vehicles may be inspected between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 10 through Friday, Oct. 13. The vehicle lot will be closed Monday, Oct. 9 in observance of Columbus Day. Vehicles may be started only between 8 a.m. and 2:45 p.m. Oct. 13.


All vehicles are sold “as-is” with no warranties. All vehicles must be paid for in full the day of the auction. Cash, credit and debit cards (Discover, MasterCard and Visa) are accepted. There is a 3 percent service fee on all credit and debit card transactions. Temporary tags are no longer available at state surplus vehicle auctions.

Public auctions are the last step in the state’s surplus program. State agencies declare property as surplus because it is either damaged or at the end of its life cycle for government use. In addition, property may include items seized by law enforcement officials as well as items surrendered to the TSA by airline passengers during security screening. The property is then made available to other state agencies, state higher education facilities, tax-supported agencies, municipal corporations and other political subdivisions of the state, including public schools. Remaining property is sold at the public auctions.


Please note: The state warehouse auction originally scheduled on Saturday, Nov. 4 has been moved to Saturday, Dec. 2 at the Surface Road location.
