Hawaii Department of Transportation’s Online Airport Divisions Auctions Offer Steals and Deals

Did you know that Hawaii Department of Transportation, Airports Division offers an online auction for items that I assume have either been confiscated, left unattended or for one reason or another the airport has possession of something it doesn’t own and is now getting rid of them.

Welcome to the Hawaii Department of Transportation, Airports Division online surplus auctioning system. Members of the public can view and access items through the website, but a user account is required in order to bid on any item. User accounts are free. The winning bidder will be notified by email. The winning bidder has 72 hours to complete the payment by credit card. All sales are final and, there are no refunds.

I’m not sure how long this has been available, but tonight was the first time I’ve seen it.

…By law, lost and surrendered items at Hawaii Airports may be redeemed without charge by the true owner upon showing satisfactory proof of ownership at the lost and found office prior to the conclusion of the auction of that item. Each auction is subject to the right of the true owner to redeem his or her property.

Current employees of the State of Hawaii are not eligible to bid at this auction…

Here is an example of something they are currently auctioning off:
