Excess Property Pickup
What is excess property?
Excess property can be nearly any equipment, supply, furniture or other tangible item that is no longer being utilized by a department. In most cases, these items should be transferred to ScotSurplus so they can be disposed of by the University while they retain value.
What revenue will my department make?
If the value is more than $100, the originating department will receive at least 60 percent of the proceeds (excludes computers). For vehicle sales, ScotSurplus will collect a 15% commission.
What will ScotSurplus pickup?
ScotSurplus is happy to pick-up surplus items within the following limitations:
- No more than five items per pick up
- Individual items must weigh less than 50 pounds
- No hazardous materials, chemicals or items leaking fluid
- How do I schedule a pickup?
Can I drop off items?
Departments are encouraged to drop off surplus items at our warehouse in the Corporation Yard during regular business hours (weekdays, 8am–4pm). However, we request that you notify us before doing so; do NOT leave unattended items outside the ScotSurplus warehouse.
What happens to the items transferred to ScotSurplus?
Surplus items will be taken to the ScotSurplus warehouse, where it will be put on sale, liquidated for its scrap value or recycled, depending on the value and condition of the property.
Is trash considered excess property?
Trash does not qualify as excess property, and should not be transferred to ScotSurplus.
Can I transfer upholstered furniture?
Due to state regulations, upholstered furniture cannot be sold for re-use on the UCR campus, and can only be sold for personal use. No department recharges can be processed.
Schedule A Pickup
To schedule a pick-up, please email Scot Surplus with a list of items and your campus location.
