Starting a Side Business Selling Government Surplus
I'm tired of working for someone else, punching the clock and living from
paycheck to paycheck. I figured there has got to be another way to make money on
my own time. I have heard that people make a living selling used items either
online or face-to-face. But I couldn't figure out where to get stuff to sell
really, really cheap. That was, until I heard about government and police surplus.
I sort of stumbled upon the idea when a neighbor kid has his bike stolen. The
police asked them to come to the unclaimed property building in town to see if
someone had turned in his bike or if it had been recovered in a bust. My neighbor
was amazed at the amount of stuff they had in unclaimed property. He asked what
they did with all the stolen goods that went unclaimed. They said that it is sold
to the public at public auctions several times a year! This was my answer!
The government has millions of dollars worth of goods just sitting around in
large warehouses waiting for someone to buy it. Some of it is police confiscated
items like expensive cars, computers, and such. Some of it is government surplus
like computers and office equipment that is no longer needed. And, the best
part, is that the government and police departments must sell it and they must
sell it to the highest bidder!
Many of these government and police auctions are well-kept secrets. People in
the know just don't tell anyone about them. And why should they? The more people
that show up, the more people that are competing against them and driving up the prices!
But once I found the secret to these auctions, I was able to buy computer
equipment for pennies on the dollar. For example, I recently bought ten 19"
monitors for $65.00. I sold them for $100 each! I did have to rent a van for the
day to get them home, but that only cost me $60. So I made over $850.00 on one
deal! And it only took me about 3 hours to pick them up. Not bad for a half-days work.
Another auction netted me an HP Color Laserjet that was worth several thousand
dollars. I paid $135.00 for it, spent another $75.00 for a technician to clean
it and I sold it for $1000.00. These are just a few of the examples of auctions
that I personally won and then resold.
Recently, several airplanes came to auction! If only I had a way to get an
airplane home to resell it! These airplanes were worth tens of thousands of
dollars and they were sold at amazing huge discounts.
Some of the items you can find at auctions by government and police departments
are: aircraft and aircraft parts, boats, cars, jewelry, computers, laptops,
cameras and camera equipment, office equipment and supplies, campers, trailers,
and trucks. And anyone can buy these items.
So get started in the lucrative resale business of government and police auction
items. Anyone can do this from the privacy of your own home with as little or as
much time as you want to commit to it.
