school bus surplus auctions

Government surplus auction supports Oklahoma school district

Every crafter worth her salt could use an overhead projector. And who hasn't dreamed of repurposing a school bus into a tiny homeLucky for us, Moore Public Schools is selling dozens of each during its annual school surplus auction at the district supply warehouse in South Oklahoma City.

Government Auctions

"Technology is growing rapidly, and school districts are racing to keep up. But as classrooms become more advanced, school storage rooms become stockpiled with outdated equipment." 

There was a time when unwanted school supplies and equipment would simply be thrown out. Fortunately, educators today take advantage of government surplus auctions. Selling surplus school supplies and equipment at public auction not only keeps it out of the landfill, it's also fiscally responsible because auction proceeds go to the schools. Some schools even sell supplies and vehicles at government surplus auctions online.

Hundreds of surplus items are slated for the live government surplus auction in Moore this weekend, everything from Dodge Ram trucks, large equipment and commercial kitchen appliances to lockers, risers, desks, chairs and audio video equipment. Truckloads of surplus school supplies are also still arriving from throughout the district. With 34 schools and a student population of over 23,000, Moore public schools is the third largest school district in Oklahoma.

Who should attend a school surplus auction?

Depending on what's for sale, school surplus auctions typically benefit churches, day care centers, restaurants, repairmen, bakeries, caterers, artists, contractors, hobbyists, mechanics and others. 

There are also enterprising buyers who purchase tools and supplies by the pallet — as many as they can — and re-sell the individual items online for a profit.

If you know what you're doing, you could probably put together a pretty good computer system for just a few dollars. And homeschool parents could easily outfit an entire classroom from the surplus school supplies.

For some, the items on sale this weekend will be reminiscent of their own school days.
