# 118 Purchasing Items From Government Surplus Auctions – For Pennies

Purchasing from government surplus auctions.
Government surplus auctions are held throughout the country. When local government agencies have surplus items that they will no longer use, then those items are sold to the public. It’s a way for government agencies to sell unwanted items.
See what I purchased recently in video # 117.

  1. Great video content! Forgive me for chiming in, I am interested in your opinion. Have you considered – Tarbbatigan Vintage Sales Tip (erm, check it on google should be there)? It is a smashing exclusive product for finding government and police auctions for cars trucks and SUVs minus the headache. Ive heard some incredible things about it and my GF at very last got cool results with it.

  2. Hi Bill, love your map with all that little flags. Here another point for your international map. I'm tuning in from Bavaria /Germany. The name of the city is Weiden. Maybe some of your followers knows it. It is right next to Grafenwoehr, the largest US-Army trainingsarea outside the States. Take care and God bless!
    PS: Only for information. We have a similar page for gov sales. And the best, it is also in English. If you like to see what kind of stuff is here on sale

  3. " Be positive and test negative " . Love that saying Bill. :)) If you don't mind I'm having that put on a T-shirt for my wife who is a nurse. Keep the videos coming and stay safe.

  4. Hi Bill . From Newcastle Ontario . Happy new year and all the best too you and your family. I’m not looking at that website 😂 . I gotta stay focused on my shop projects . 👍
