The U.S. Embassy will host its first online auction September 20 – 25, 2021. The auction will be open to Embassy personnel and the general public.
The Embassy will sell surplus movable property (SMP) via a web-based Electronic Auction. Items for sale include sofas, chairs, mattresses, dining room sets, stoves, refrigerators, washing machines, dryers, and motor vehicles. Each auction will be activated for a specific period of time, clearly stating the start and end dates. This information is available on the information panel of the web application. During this period, participants can submit bids for the surplus property.
The auction will begin Monday September 20 at 7:00 am and will close Saturday September 25 at 4:00 PM. Winners will be notified via email and telephone and will have two days to pay for and pick up their items. All items will be sold “As is and Where it is” and in local currency. Winners can pay for and pick up their items, Wednesday September 29, from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm and Thursday September 30, from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm. All items must be picked up at Reyes Warehouse, located across the street from the consular section.
The property/warehouse section will contact non-Embassy personnel via email and telephone to announce winning bids and submit an access request to allow them to come pay for their items at the Embassy cashier office located in the chancery building on the 3rd floor.
