The GSA sells cars, trucks, vans, trailers, boats; office furniture; communication equipment; computers, printers, copiers, typewriters; cameras, projectors; and tools. The GSA Warehouse in Springfield, Virginia is hosting its last on-site, monthly Retail Sale on Thursday, September 22nd, 8 am -..12 pm. This warehouse sale is First-Come, First Serve – featuring a wide selection of available surplus government property at set prices.
Some better deals can be had through dealer targeted auctions (Manheim and Adessa) but sometimes these companies require registration fees or a dealer license. Auctions are a great place to purchase a vehicle below the car’s actual cash value or book value. The Marshals use brokers such as Skipco ( ) of Canal Fulton, Ohio, to peddle their misbegotten wares; these brokers list descriptions and photos of the goods online and handle the auctions.
GSA stands for General Services Administration, which is a specific entity of the US Government that handles the acquisitions for other agencies within the federal government. If you don’t have much experience with government auctions then you may be wondering why they are allowing their fleet vehicles to be sold so cheaply. The GSA wouldn’t answer specific questions about cars with open recalls being driven by federal government employees. Unlike the Marshals, the GSA takes credit and debit cards, and even a personal check as long as your bank guarantees it. And they conduct both live and internet auctions. For licensed auto dealers, registering or logging on at our dealer site is much more convenient, as it is set up with Auction Access, and allows floor planning, and alternative methods for transactions, and many more options.
Really good to see the new faces from our communities coming to our auctions for the first time,” said DAA Owner David Andrews, who attended both sale events. Fees vary but average about $40, usually a one-time charge for unlimited online access to listings of auctions.
Oh, the GSA Reps repeatedly state that GSA will only accept bids at FMV This makes no sense to me b/c I don’t know anyone who will meet GSA’s auction conditions ($5,000 EMD , QD, no title insurance, slow process with no guarantees or protections) AND pay FMV.
