The Story of Surplus starts at one of Liquidity Services North American warehouses. Products arrive from all over the US, including the US Department of Defense, ranging from diesel engines to pianos and everything in-between.

Once in our warehouse, items are organized in lots to maximize the potential recovery.  The lotting team generates listings for our online marketplaces where millions of registered buyers find value through our auctions.

Our innovated tablet app also makes it fast and convenient for buyers to schedule and complete pickups.
