About Us

GovPlanet® is the place for state, local and federal agencies, including military, to sell equipment. When it's time to turn surplus inventory from excavators to trucks to Humvees, GovPlanet helps government agencies achieve faster sales and generate higher returns.
Equipment in GovPlanet's weekly online auctions feature our IronClad Assurance® equipment condition certification. All items have been inspected by our certified inspectors and we stand behind our inspection reports. These reports are available to bidders ahead of auction dates and enable the sale of surplus equipment online by building buyer confidence. Another key benefit: not losing valuable time and money moving items to a central auction site or waiting for an upcoming auction. Our popular platform is tailored to the needs of government sellers with stringent property assurance and control requirements.
GovPlanet is an IronPlanet® marketplace and benefits from its 17 years in the business of online auctions. See how it all started with IronPlanet.
