LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Every year Clark County holds its spring surplus auction and this year's preview and registration starts on May 8.

The preview and pre-registration period for the spring government surplus auction will run through May 10, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily at 4320 Stephanie Street, the same location as Saturday’s auction.

The sale will take place May 11 starting at 8 a.m. and features about 304 vehicles and 580 lots of miscellaneous items used or acquired by area police departments, local cities, the state of Nevada, Clark County School District and other government agencies.

Popular items to be sold include furniture, computers, bicycles, electronics and unclaimed property from McCarran International Airport’s Lost and Found division.

The auction has 16 hybrid SUVs for sale and 28 hybrid sedans including Hondas, Toyotas and Chevys.

Additionally, there is a 1960 Thunderbird and 1976 Chevy Step side pickup, and a 2008 Saturn Sky Turbo as part of an estate sale the public adminstrator is facilitating.

All the vehicles sold at the auction are purchased in as-is condition.

“Vehicles, in particular, tend to be very popular items at our auctions,” said David Johnson, manager of Clark County’s Automotive Division, which oversees the sales. “If you visit the lot during the preview period you can sit in the vehicles and you can start them up.”

Anyone interested in participating on site at the auction must register as a bidder in person at the TNT Auction trailer set up on the lot.

There is no cost to register and participants are encouraged to register in advance during the preview period so they don’t miss any action on auction day.

Another auction will take place on Nov. 23 at the same Stephanie Street location.
