Surplus equipment typically includes cars, trucks, heavy equipment and miscellaneous small equipment that the City no longer needs or uses. The City of Raleigh is no longer conducting live auctions for disposal of surplus equipment. Most surplus equipment is now either consigned to the North Carolinas State Surplus Agency or sold by online auction via GovDeals.
