Sale of Surplus Goods
As goods are declared surplus to the needs of the City of Quinte West, they may be posted for sale utilizing the public online auction known as "Government Surplus Online Auction". This is a cooperative initiative for responsible disposal of surplus public sector goods. The site is user friendly; once you have created your online account, you will have access not only to surplus items offered by the City of Quinte West but also the surplus items offered by other public sector agencies.

Items are described and accompanied by a photograph (if available). Items are sold "AS IS WHERE IS" meaning it is the bidder's sole responsibility to satisfy themselves as to the condition and specifications of the goods being offered for sale before placing a bid. Please note that by placing a bid, you are making a contract between you and the seller. Once you place a bid, you may not retract it. It is illegal to win an auction and not purchase the item.
Although the website is hosted by The District School Board of Niagara, items for sale by the City of Quinte West remain in the City throughout the bidding period and will be available for inspection for the duration of that period.
Pick Up of Items Purchased
Items purchased will be available for pick up during regular municipal office hours: Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Removal of item(s) purchased shall be the sole responsibility of the buyer and must be completed within one (1) week of notification of successful bid (seven calendar days). City staff are NOT available to assist with removing the item(s) from City property. Should damage to City property occur during removal of items, the buyer will assume full responsibility.
Cash or certified cheque made payable to the City of Quinte West are the only acceptable methods of payment. GST will be collected, where applicable, on all items sold. Payment in full must be received before items are removed from City property.
Some items may have a minimum or "reserve" bid. If the reserve bid is not met, the City reserves the right to withdraw the offer to sell.
Withdrawal of Item
At any time prior to the close of the sale, the City reserves the right to suspend and/or cancel the offer to sell posted items.
