Not true. We have state auctions here all of the time. We sell some very nice equipment that is 3-4 years old because that is our rollover policy. Most of ours are passenger trucks, vans and semi tractors w/ trailors. We sometimes sell fire trucks and giant graters w/ snowplow attachments.
What else do we surplus for auction...hmm
We once auctioned off the state dairy w/ all of its equipment. That was a CHORE omg.
Some very nice computers-monitors-laptops-filers-cisco equipment
Not all auctions are bad and not everything in them is junk. You can find some very nice things in an auction if you know what to look for.
I've got a prayer on my desk. It says, "Dear Lord, I pray that my place will never be with the cold, timid souls who do not compete yet criticize, for they never know or feel success or failure."
