Public Surplus

The City of University Place uses the online auction service offered by Public Surplus to facilitate the auction of its surplus equipment. Public Surplus is a free service to the City and is used by government entities across the country to efficiently and fairly dispose of items of value that are no longer in use. 

Types of Items

Several times per year we will post items that were recently approved for surplus. These items may include vehicles, computer equipment, electronics and many other items.

Reviewing Items & Placing a Bid

All auction items will be held open for up to 28 days and sold to the highest bidder. Please read the City’s terms and conditions before placing a bid. If you are interested in reviewing items currently available for auction, please visit the Public Surplus website and follow the directions. Be sure to check back periodically for additional postings as they become available.
