NC State Surplus Property Virtual Preview

To enhance the shopping experience for our customers during the Public Surplus Sale, the surplus team created something new. With some photography skills and a little creativity the team decided to shoot a video and post it on the NC State Surplus Property Instagram profile, @ncstatesurplus

And so the Public Sale Preview went virtual. Each morning before the Public Surplus Sale, the surplus team films an Instagram story around the items available that day. Now our customers can view the ever changing inventory of items available for that week’s Public Sale.

The video provides customers with useful information like: 

  • What time to arrive for the sale 
  • What items will be available at the sale
  • What prices to expect

These are examples of just some of the many items for sale at the surplus sales.
