GSA Auctions℠ Sales

GSA can sell agency surplus, exchange/sale, and forfeited personal property through GSA Auctions or offline sales. GSA provides services that will speed disposal of property and generate greater returns. These services include:

  • Nationwide visibility of property to increase interest and competitive sales;
  • Various sales methods suitable to an agency’s needs;
  • Vehicle consolidation sites where volume dictates; and
  • Specialized sales for unique items.

GSA Auctions sales offers:

  • Sales professionals trained and experienced in personal property and vehicle disposal;
  • Experience in working with contract law in instances of claims or disputes;
  • Electronic payments and disbursements available;
  • Full-service vehicle disposal contracts in all U.S. regions; and
  • Computer information systems geared to property disposal.


Benefits of GSA Auctions Sales for vehicles are:

  • Timely sales and removal of excess vehicles, minimizing agency custodial responsibility for the vehicles;
  • Optional locations for consolidating vehicles for sale; and
  • Increased visibility yields higher bids and proceeds.

Value-Added Services, including transportation, storage, maintenance and vehicle reconditioning are offered through a partnership with GSA Fleet, as part of the GSA Auctions Sales Center.

An added fee is required based on the level of service requested. Note that this option is only available for Light Duty Vehicles.

Owning Agency Responsibilities

Owning agencies are responsible for the care and handling of surplus personal property during the sales process. Specifically, they must:

  • Provide descriptive information for sale and accountability on SF120 (Report of Excess Personal Property) or SF126 (Report of Personal Property for Sale) for non-reportable surplus and exchange/sale property;
  • Provide photographs and other assistance when requested by GSA;
  • Assist in lotting personal property into reasonably sized groups of similar items to promote competitive bidding;
  • Transport property to a consolidated sales site when acceptable to both the owning agency and GSA; and
  • Facilitate inspection and removal by prospective bidders.
