So You Want to Take Part in a Surplus Live Auction?

Curious about what happens at our live public auctions but afraid you might accidentally win something if you scratch your nose or stretch your arm? Fear not! Surplus live auctions are lively affairs in which a live auction caller directs & accepts bids on a wide variety of auction lots with the help of bid spotters and bidders’ own numbered bidder paddle cards. And if you happen to scratch your nose or stretch your arm, we won’t award a bid to you unless you want us to do so.

Approximately 6 – 8 Saturdays per year, UW Surplus Auctions hosts live public auctions at the Surplus warehouse. Auction lots are comprised of large quantities of like-items such as laptops, servers, and desktop computers, items that are large in size or scale such as printing presses, plotters, and industrial equipment like saws, lathes & milling machines, and groups of items of similar use or function such as medical equipment, audio-visual equipment, and kitchen or lab equipment. Our live auctions also offer unique items such as professional coffee equipment, maritime equipment like buoys and rope, art equipment like pottery wheels, and racks full of printer inks & toners.

So whether you’re a reseller who finds clients for laptops & computers, a tinkerer on the lookout for that perfect saw or drill press for your garage shop, a photography enthusiast excited by the range of cameras we offer, a couple of young start-ups looking for espresso machines for your new business, or a crafty sort who knows just the trick to convert a giant old metal buoy into a fire pit or grill, UW Surplus Auctions has something of interest for you!

We post our online auction catalog to Proxibid.com a week before the auction begins. Interested bidders may register online at Proxibid (and submit pre-bids!) or in person at the Surplus warehouse the Friday before the auction & the Saturday morning of the auction. When you register with us in person, you receive an official, numbered bidder paddle card you then raise during the auction if you want to bid or if you win the auction lot. Paper copies of the catalog are available to all visitors starting the Friday of auction preview, and numbered auction lots are staged at the north end of the warehouse unless otherwise noted.

Live auctions begin at 10am Pacific Time at the south end of the Surplus warehouse, where you’ll find several comfortable seats arranged before the auction caller’s stage & podium. You’ll see 2 stations on either side of the stage—one for the auction clerk who records all winning bids & bid amounts, and one for the Proxibid clerk, who must yell “Yep!” for each new online bid received during the auction. The auction is simulcast via live streaming through Proxibid, which means bids are coming in both online and onsite. Onsite bid spotter staff and projection screens displaying the current lot and bid progression ensure that everyone knows what the current bid is on that lot you’re interested in, so don’t be shy—raise your bidder card & bid! It’s easy to see how people get caught up in the excitement of rapid auction bidding, so it’s good to act fast when there’s something you really want!

If you’ve won items in our auction, you may issue payment right away at the cashier’s desk or make your removal arrangements and issue payment by the deadline of the close of business the Thursday after the auction. The removal deadline for auction items is the end of the day the Friday after the auction. Surplus staff will help you load auction items onto or into your vehicle at no charge. If you will be using a third-party shipper to pick-up and haul your winnings, we ask that you send us a copy of your shipper’s Bill of Lading (BOL) for our records; that way, we can release the materials to your shipper. With few exceptions, UW Surplus is unable to pack items for shipping, but we are happy to work with your designated shipping agent.

An additional nice feature of auction Saturdays is that the UW Surplus Store is open to the public from 8am – 3:30pm. So grab a coffee, bring your dog, bring your friends, and find some great deals while supporting UW Surplus’ mission of reuse, repurpose, recycle! We hope to see you at the warehouse!
