The King County Fleet Administration Division handles the disposal of all county surplus property except real estate. To make the most of taxpayer dollars, many of the county’s surplus items are sold at public auctions. These auctions also include items from other government agencies. They are open to the general public as well as all government employees.
King County holds spot bid auctions of surplus property on the second Wednesday of the month. For more information, see our spot bid auction page.
Vehicles and equipment
King County holds two auto and heavy equipment auctions each year, on Saturdays--one in spring and one in fall. (Preliminary list is now available).
For more information, see our vehicle and equipment auction page.
Sealed bid announcements
King County also conducts sealed bid auctions or invitations to bid, (ITB) on specialty items. These sales might have buyer requirements, remote locations, limitations, or conditions of the item(s) up for auction. Those restrictions are posted in the auction description.
