Surplus equipment auction is Saturday

Vintage books, from the late 1800s to early 1900s. Four-drawer fireproof file cabinets. Desks, tables and chairs. Treadmills and weight equipment. Oak doors and windows. Computer towers and printers. Floor buffers and vacuums. Overhead projectors. An LP gas forklift.

These are a few of the items that ISU Surplus will sell at auction Saturday morning (Nov. 15).

Central stores director Norm Hill calls it an "overstock auction." He said ISU Surplus has been inundated lately as buildings, such as Marston and Davidson halls, have been cleared for renovation or demolition.

The two-ring auction begins at 9:30 a.m. in the new storage facility located east of the surplus warehouse building at 1102 Southern Hills Drive. The auction should be completed by 12:30 p.m. Payment may be by cash, check or these credit cards: MasterCard, Visa and Discover.    

Pre-auction inspections

The public may inspect items at the storage facility on Friday (1-3:30 p.m.) and the day of the sale, beginning at 8:30 a.m.
