Surplus Property Program
The Warehousing Services Section is responsible for the disposal of all City owned property, other than real property, that has become surplus to its needs. Once the material or equipment is identified as surplus it is made available for sale in one of several methods. The most common items, such as office furniture and computers, are available on a regular basis and sold out of our warehouse at Second Ave. S., behind the City Light South Service Center. For unusual items that don't have established prices, or expensive items, we advertise in local papers, send out invitations to bid list items on the internet. In addition to this site City of Seattle surplus items can be found periodically at www.bidadoo.com.
Buyers are urged and cautioned to thoroughly inspect items being purchased. All items are sold on the basis of "as-is, where-is" without any guarantee as to the accuracy of the description or as to present or future condition or performance. No warranty other than ownership is expressed or implied. All sales are final
Prior to removal of the equipment, payment must be made in full. All checks shall be made payable to the City of Seattle. A sales tax will be collected by the City, unless the purchaser can provide a valid Resale Certificate at the time of purchase.
