What is Surplus Property and how do we dispose of it?

Surplus property is tangible property that is no longer of use to any County department because it is obsolete, uneconomical to repair, or valued only for its base contents. Surplus Property may include anything from office supplies and furniture to vehicles and heavy equipment.

Before releasing any surplus property, the County of San Luis Obispo makes every attempt to reuse and/or reassign the property to another department within the County. If we are unable, we have several methods of disposition available to us.

The current vehicle auctioneer is Ken Porter Auctions. General surplus property or seized/recovered property by the County Sheriff is periodically sold online at Public Surplus.
