Other items for sale include CPR mannequins, public washroom equipment such as soap and paper towel dispensers, animal cages and lab equipment. Police property room items also will be part of the auction, with four binders of collector’s stamps among them, including some golden replicas of U.S. stamps. As in previous auctions, there will be many surplus vehicles, lawn and mowing equipment, tools, building materials, electronics, furniture and office equipment. All sales are "as is." It is the bidder's responsibility to assess condition of merchandise.

Three auctioneers may be selling simultaneously, so bidders wanting to bid on multiple items should bring a partner/proxy. No one under age 16 may be admitted at the City surplus property facility.

Cash, Mastercards and Visa cards are accepted. Checks can be accepted only if accompanied by a letter of guaranty from the financial institution on which the check is drawn. Payment is required in full within one hour after the auction ends.

Sales are subject to applicable local and state taxes unless a sales tax permit is provided with proof of regular engagement in the re-sale business for items purchased. An Oklahoma Tax Commission auditor may be present.
