North Carolina State Surplus Auctions
The state of North Carolina holds state surplus auctions for seized, lost and found and unclaimed items as well. The state uses an over-complicated process of sealed bids for their auction, a process that is rare and old school for state auctions.
The state posts photographs and very brief descriptions for each item, along with the bid closing date, with hundreds of items featured for each bid deadline. Some items are sold in bulk lot auctions. Items in these auctions come from office, schools, universities, highway department, hospitals, law enforcement, parks and recreation, maintenance, cafeterias as well as many items seized or unclaimed from private citizens.
Payments are also old school, with only cashier's check, certified check or money order accepted and shipping of winning bid items is not done, unless it's specified in the auction description. Beginning in 2012, all winning bidders have 10 days to pick up their awarded property.
