Vehicles and Surplus Property

Distribution and Support Services sells surplus personal property either through public auctions or sealed bids. Public auctions are held to sell surplus state vehicles and other surplus property at New Jersey State Distribution and Support Services, 1620 Stuyvesant Ave., Trenton, NJ. (Note: OUR MAILING ADDRESS IS PO BOX-234, TRENTON, NJ 08625-0234).

  • Auctions are usually held on Saturdays at least once each month. Open auction bidding will begin at 9:00 a.m.

  • All vehicles and/or property are offered on an "AS IS, WHERE IS" basis. "AS IS, WHERE IS" means that any item auctioned and sold has no warranty, either expressed or implied, that the buyer is solely responsible for the cost of any repairs to the item, and that the buyer is solely responsible for all costs involved in moving the sold item from the auction site.

  • Bidders are urged to physically inspect the items before bidding. This can be done the day before the sale from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., and from 8 a.m. until sale time, which is normally 9 a.m. on the day of the sale. NO RETURNS OR ADJUSTMENTS WILL BE CONSIDERED AFTER AWARD.

  • All bidders are required to register with the auctioneer and obtain a bidders number prior to bidding. A driver's license or an official picture ID (military, federal, state, college, etc.) will be required as part of the registration process. Registration will commence at 8 a.m. on the day of auction.

  • Bidders must be at least eighteen (18) years of age. (Bidders who are under 18 years of age will not be considered for refund of deposit under any condition.) No children under the age of 18 years old are permitted at the auction or on the grounds, nor are they allowed in the vehicle lot during preview.

  • At the time of sale, successful bidders are required to place a deposit in Cash, Bank Money Order or Certified Check for $150 or 10% of the total amount of the bid, whichever is greater. Certified check or money order must be made out to "Treasurer, State of New Jersey". If so desired, the item can be purchased outright on the auction day. The balance may be paid and the item picked up between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. Monday through Friday of the following week. Any balance due must be paid for by money order or certified check. No cash will be accepted after the day of auction. WE DO NOT ACCEPT CREDIT CARDS!

  • Any item not paid for and picked up by the Friday following the sale is subject to storage fees of $20 per day (including weekends). Failure to pay the balance due and remove the vehicle within 14 days from the date of sale will be cause for the forfeiture of the bid deposit and all claims to the vehicle.

  • For inquiries and information regarding auctions, auction procedures, or items being auctioned, please call Distribution and Support Services at (609) 530-3300.
