Barbara Haven refers to California's surplus property sales on eBay. They seem to be getting some excellent reviews and quite a few bids on most items. One reviewer compares California's sales to Oregon's:

Utah started selling property on eBay several years ago with mixed success. We have also sold some stuff through eSurplus Auction, a company based in Lindon, UT. Several school districts and municipalities in our state also use this service. We even have our own online auction where we have sold about $53,000 worth of property this year. The majority of our sales are still done onsite, although many customers use our website to search for available property before coming in. Here's a snowcat that you can bid on:
For those readers in Utah, the State also has a contract with TNT Auctions to sell heavy equipment. Their next government auction is on March 22nd. You can view photos of the equipment online.
