In years past, residents in the area would check out local government and school auctions to find some great deals on used items such as office fixtures, furniture, heavy equipment, tools, surplus supplies, and even used patrol cars.
However, in recent times, some area government entities have moved to the online auction website GovDeals.com rather than holding an annual, traditional in-person auction since it is a more convenient, cost-effective, and efficient solution to dispose of their surplus assets.
One of the main advantages of using GovDeals is that it saves time and money for entities. Traditional in-person auctions require significant planning and preparation, including advertising, manpower, and in some cases, storage facilities rental.
By using GovDeals, government departments can eliminate many of these costs, since they can easily list and sell items from their facility without having to move them to another location.
Another benefit of GovDeals is that it provides wider exposure to potential purchasers.
In-person auctions are typically limited to local bidders, whereas the online platform provided by GovDeals allows these organizations to reach a global audience.
This can result in higher bids and better returns on the items being sold. Additionally, the online bidding process is convenient and accessible, allowing bidders to participate from anywhere, at any time.
By offering a convenient, cost-effective, and efficient solution, along with wider exposure, greater transparency and accountability, and a user-friendly platform, GovDeals helps these organizations maximize the value of their surplus assets.
