How can I purchase surplus property being auctioned off by the County?
Roanoke County sells all surplus vehicles and other surplus property through an online auction site as items become available. The County no longer holds vehicles for an annual sale.

To review available surplus items, please visit the site at Select region (Virginia) and agency (County of Roanoke). You will be given the option to review past auctions or current auctions.

If you opt to bid, you must register as a buyer. In order to do that, you need to go to login, 'not already a buyer', and register here. Proceed with filling out your name, phone number, address, and email. You must develop a username and password. You should read the user agreement. You will receive an email with a code to confirm and activate your account. Once the account is activated, you are ready to bid on public surplus.

Should you need further information, please contact: Ann Mendes, Roanoke County Surplus Property Coordinator at (540) 355-1243 or by sending her an email to See the following page for more details: Surplus Property
