Online Auction Sites
Many local and state agencies in Illinois use these web sites to conduct auctions of small to mid valued items:
-- Bid on government surpluses and confisticated items
-- Bid on forfeited items
-- Buy and bid on public surpluses
-- Started as auction for law enforcement agencies
For higher value items, most local and state agencies in Illinois solicit the help
of professional auctioneers. Many have worked to sell government "big tickets" surpluses for decades.
All auctioneers must be licensed
by the state of Illinois.
