Wheelock Barn

During our regular season we conduct a weekly one hour sale every Tuesday from Noon - 1:00 pm. All sales are final. No returns, refunds or guarantees. Items must be removed from premises at the time of sale and hauling, trucking and labor must be arranged by the buyer. 

How Surplus Property Sales Work

  • We are open to the UVM community AND the general public.
  • Sales to the General Public: We accept checks only, payable to "University of Vermont." We do not accept credit cards or cash. All prices are inclusive of a State of Vermont 6% Sales Tax and a 1% Burlington Local Option Sales Tax for a total of seven (7%) Sales Tax. All sales are final. 
  • Sales and Donations to Non-Profit Organizations: Non-profit 501(c)(3) organizations must bring certificate of tax-exempt status and pay with an official agency check to receive a discount. 
  • Sales to UVM Departments: UVM departments may shop during our regular weekly Tuesday sale. Departments must bring a UVM Chart String to pay for items. Please use the Peoplesoft form to write your Chart String number legibly.

Vehicle and Equipment Auctions

From time to time we have old vehicles, grounds equipment and more that still have useful life. UVM works with Auctions International and utilizes an online silent auction forum to dispose of these items. If you are a UVM department looking to post something to auction please contact UVM Recycling to begin the process. If we currently have a live auction you will see the link below.
