About Sales to the Public
Surplus Property receives inventory from Oregon State University and approximately 40 other state agencies around Oregon. Once the items are received and processed, they are offered for sale to OSU departments, qualified non-profit organizations and the public. We sell our inventory to the public (i.e. for personal purchases) through several methods:
- The OSUsed Store: We have a storefront in our warehouse that we open to the public weekly.
- Online Sales: Vehicles, machinery, small consumer goods and specialty items are sold online through a variety of auction sites.
- Sealed Bids: Some items are sold through a blind bidding process on our website.
