LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Clark County's last government surplus auction of the year is scheduled for next month.

The largest auction of 2019 will take place at 8 a.m. on Nov. 23 at 4320 Stephanie Street, near Flamingo Road.

The popular auction will feature items used or acquired by area police and government agencies. These items include cars, trucks, computers, office equipment, electronics, and other lost and found items from McCarran International Airport.

"The November auction always is our biggest one of the year with the most inventory," said David Johnson, manager of Clark County's Automotive Division, which oversees the auctions.

Clark County contracts with TNT Auction to manage the sales.

Catalog listings for items being sold are posted on TNT's website here, and they get updated regularly as the sale date approaches, according to the county.

A three-day preview and pre-registration period will be on-site from Nov. 20 through Nov. 22 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Anyone planning to participate in the live auction to bid on vehicles or miscellaneous items must register as a bidder on-site at the TNT Auction trailer set up on the auction grounds.

"If you plan to participate on-site, it's best to visit the auction yard during the preview period to register as a bidder and see many of the items that will be sold. This way, you won't miss any of the action on auction day," Johnson said.

To become a registered bidder, participants need to present a valid ID. There is no cost to register. Upon winning a bid on auction day, payment is due in the form of cash, cashier's checks, credit cards, debit cards, traveler's checks, or money orders.

More information about the process is also available here from the county.
