OSU Surplus Property Sales (Applies to ALL Sales)

  1. OSU reserves the right to accept or reject any and all bids and to sell any part or all of the offered property to OSU departments, state and local governments, and nonprofit organizations with a 501(c)(3)status prior to the end of the sale.
  2. OSU accepts cash, cashier checks, money orders, certified checks, and Visa or MasterCard. We do not accept personal or company checks.
  3. Oregon State University's interest in the property passes to the successful bidder at the time of announcement of award. At this time, risk of loss or damage will not release the bidder from the obligation to buy the property. However, until the property is paid for, Oregon State University retains possession, as security toward the entire payment of the purchase price. Prior to possession of the property by the purchaser, when legal title of ownership passes from Oregon State University to the purchaser, the University may, if it decides that it is necessary, practical, or convenient, move any items. The successful bidder empowers Oregon State University, as Oregon State University deems suitable, to appoint an agent for them to move the property. Loading and transporting items are the responsibility of the successful Bidder.
  4. Customers may be barred from participating in Oregon State University public sales for the following reasons:
    1. Failure to observe the terms and conditions as set forth by OSU.
    2. Failure to pay for purchases.
  5. OSU makes no warranty expressed or implied as to the quality, weight, size or description of any of the property or its fitness of any use or purpose. All sales are final, no refunds. All property is offered for sale “as is, where is, with no guarantee”.  

In addition to the above Terms and Conditions, sale-specific Terms and Conditions apply as well. See below.
