Government Auctions Review Review Review


Our Review shows that this is a viable auction site and is not a scam, although it is not as comprehensive as what you will find at is an auction site that deals strictly with government surplus. This website offers a help desk to address any questions or concerns. The help desk can be reached at 1-800-613-0156 from 8am to 6pm Monday through Friday.

There is no fee for bidding, it is required that you join the website and agree to a host of conditions. One of the conditions is that if you are the winning bidder on an item and you do not pay for the item you will be assessed a fee which is equal to 40% of the winning bid price. Registration is not necessary to browse the website. There are categories that a are a bit unique from other online auction websites. Things like school buses are sold. Cars, earth moving equipment and many other no longer in use municipal items can be purchased through this website.

This is not a site for sellers, this site is geared toward selling government surplus items and only government agencies can list their surplus. This is a specialty site where great deals can be had but for very specific items.

Our review shows that this is a US resident only website. Items are typically not shipped and they need to be picked up. There is a feature on the home page where you can input a zip code and view items that are being sold within a specific mile radius of that zip code.

Overall, the review shows that this is a viable site and is not a scam although seems to be a more popular option.
