The Texas Facilities Commission disposes of salvage and surplus personal property from Texas state agencies such as DPS, TXDOT, TCEQ, and Texas Parks & Wildlife. Examples of commonly available items include vehicles, furniture, office equipment and supplies, small electronics, and heavy equipment. The public is invited to purchase the property at our retail storefront in Austin, TX, or by bidding on an online auction. 

Online Auctions: Auctions are held on an as-needed basis.  There may be zero or multiple auctions happening at any given time.  Auctions feature specialty equipment (including heavy equipment and vehicles from TXDOT) and/or items located outside the Austin area.  Internet auctions are conducted by Lone Star Auctioneers.
