From time to time, OSD offers the public the opportunity to bid on vehicles and other equipment that no longer are of use by the State. Two such opportunities will take place this month:

State Police
Viewing: Thursday, November 16 – 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Auction: Friday, November 17 – 10:00 a.m. (lot opens at 8:30 a.m.)
31-69 Bishop Road
Ayer, MA 01432

Westborough Vehicle Lot
Viewing: Wednesday, November 15 – 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Auction: Saturday, November 18 – 10:00 a.m. (lot opens at 8:00 a.m.)
289 Lyman Street
Westborough, MA 01581

You may review the list of planned sale items and associated photographs on the Auctions International website under the Live Auctions tab.* Please note there may be variances between what is advertised on the Auctions International website and the vehicles/equipment offered on the day of the auction: surplus items are made available to all Massachusetts municipalities in advance of the public auction. Public employees are not eligible to bid on items from their employing entity.

Payment for General Public
If your bid is accepted, payment in full is due immediately after the sale. Auctions International, Inc. will accept the following forms of payment on behalf of OSD: cash; bank check; money order; or credit card with two forms of identification, one being a valid driver’s license. Positive identification is required regardless of your method of payment. Visit the Auctions International website to access OSD’s Auction Terms and Conditions.

Payment for Municipal Officials
If your bid is accepted, you may take possession of the vehicle and the State Surplus Property Office will invoice your city/town/municipality. Payment should be sent to the Surplus Property Office within 30 days.

OSD oversees the State’s Surplus Property Program ensuring the Commonwealth realizes the maximum benefit from State-owned surplus personal property. Learn more about the Surplus Property Program at mass.gov/osd > Surplus Property.

*Auctions International is a professional auctioneer licensed by the Commonwealth’s Division of Standards.
