New York state is once again selling used surplus items on eBay but for the first time offering up more than 450 cars and trucks for auction.
The state's digital auction site went live Tuesday, listing unused state-owned property for sale to the public. Vehicles were listed with a minimum bid of $500, most of them older models with hundreds of thousands of miles racked up.
Other items up for bid include stainless steel prep tables, giant food warmers, industrial refrigerators and panini grills.
Items on New York state's eBay page were designated as surplus by the state agency that used it, then turned over to the Office of General Services, according to OGS spokeswoman Heather Groll.
The state has been selling surplus items on eBay for several years, but this is the first time it is conducting a vehicle auction online, said Groll.
The money from the sales either goes back to the agency that "surplused" the item or into the state's general fund, said Groll.
