FAQ

What if I won a bid but no longer want the item?

A bidder should only submit a bid if they intend on purchasing the bid lot. Bidders must pay for all bid lots awarded within 5 business days of being notified, or they will forfeit all lots. A bidder who withdraws their bid or refuses to pay for 1 or more awarded lots will have their bidding privileges suspended for 30 days. After 30 days, if bidders withdraw any bids or refuse one of their awarded items a second time, their bidding privileges will be revoked indefinitely.

How can I find out what items are going to be available through a sealed-bid auction?

If you're not already on the list to receive our weekly sealed-bid announcements, just send an email to sealedbids@umich.edu with Sign Me Up in the subject line and you'll start receiving notifications whenever new items are available. We look forward to hearing from you!

When will results be posted?

Bid results are posted on the Property Disposition website only after payment has been received for all lots in a given bid round. That process can take anywhere from 3-10 business days.

Can you ship my items to me?

No, we are not currently able to ship items.
