From time to time, the Operational Services Division (OSD) offers the general public the opportunity to bid on vehicles and other equipment that no longer are of use by the State. Two such opportunities will be held this week through public auction in Ayer and Westborough. Here are the details:

Ayer Public Auction. Approximately 140 State Police vehicles. November 20, 2015 at 10 am. Registration begins at 8:30 am. Preview available items on Thursday, November 19 from 10 am to 1 pm. State Police Training facility 31-69 Bishop Road, Ayer, MA 01432.

If interested, 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.

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.

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, including eligibility and costs, if any, at mass.gov/osd > Surplus Property.
