Time once again to spotlight a few items we’ve been getting here at Surplus. Most of these items are ones that we have received large quantities of, so they have been priced to move! Some items are brand new, some are slightly used, and some…well, I don’t know what the heck they even are, so I’ll let you be the judge of that.
Apple iPhone 8
We have the real deal in stock! We’ve received 62 new in the box Apple iPhone 8’s. Since they are NIB, they come with the phone, headphones, charger cord, adapter, etc. Basically everything that comes with a new iPhone. These are AT&T FirstNet compatible phones….I admit, I didn’t know what that meant, so I Googled it, and if you click here, it will take you to the website that will explain it. Bottom line is that these would be ideal for emergency management purposes, or if your agency just needs an inexpensive means of communications. These are priced to sell quickly, but please just be aware…..we have this thing called “Fair and Equitable Distribution”, which means we can’t sell them all to one agency, we need to spread the love to all agencies. With that, agency price is going to be….are you ready for it? $100.00 per unit.
Another special buy we have available is for 5 drawer map cabinets. These are in very good condition, and I have seen these used in museums to store artifacts, I’ve seen them used by Entomologists to catalog butterfly and cockroach collections (Hey, I don’t judge) and believe it or not, they actually use these for STORING MAPS! These are getting harder and harder to find as we go more to digital, but there is still a need for these out there. We have 23 of these 5 drawer units, and each one is priced at $100 per unit.
Our agency salesperson Joe Mannion asked me to send out an email regarding “Gym Equipment”. I was like “Okay, and just what exactly is that?” He said “You know, gym equipment”, and he pointed to a few mechanical-looking things that I had no idea what the heck they are…..okay, well I can take pictures of stuff and I can read so I’ll give all of this to you, and maybe you’ll know what they’re for, what they do….what they’re supposed to do….
We have a lot of these mechanical looking gym equipment thingamajigs in stock right now. Some of these have words on them like “Life Fitness”, “Life Cycle”, “Precor” and “True”. We have these things called “elliptical’s” (don’t know what those are, so I looked it up in the dictionary…"using or involving ellipsis, especially so as to be difficult to understand". Great. Difficult to understand. No closer to knowing what that means….), treadmills, resistance machines, stationary bikes (apparently these are still called “bikes”, even though they only have one wheel, but they’re not unicycles, and they don’t go anywhere…), so there you go. There are different prices for different pieces of equipment, and I’ve been told that police/fire departments like these, as do schools. I imagine it’s because they know what they are. But hey, we got ‘em, and they look like they’re in beautiful condition! I suspect nobody else knew what they were either, so they never got used much, but I don’t know.
All of these items are currently available at the State of Oregon Department of Administrative Services Enterprise Asset Management State and Federal Surplus Property Program for immediate sales to eligible agencies and nonprofit organizations only (sorry, no private/public sales). If you’re not certain of your eligibility status, or would like more information on how to become eligible, please feel free to contact yours truly at email@example.com (please do not reply to this listserv….it will not answer back). If you need any information on these items or any other items at Surplus, please contact Mr. Joe Mannion at 503-378-4089 or firstname.lastname@example.org, and he can get you taken care of.
I’d be willing to bet that he will be able to tell you what some of the gym equipment is too…have a great day everybody!
