"This is a great opportunity for the public to obtain reasonably priced pre-owned items that have outlived their usefulness to the state," said Curtis Howard, manager of the department's Property Control Division.

Registration will begin at 6:30 a.m. and the sale will begin promptly at 8 a.m. The merchandise will be available for inspection on Monday, Aug. 2, and Tuesday, Aug. 3, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and beginning at 7 a.m. the day of the sale.

There are no warranties or guarantees implied or expressed, and all sales are final.

Bidders may pay for purchases with cash, MasterCard, Visa, cashier's checks, money orders or traveler's checks in increments of $100 or less. Business or personal checks are also accepted, but they must be supported by a letter of credit from a financial institution. The letters of credit must include the maximum amount of credit approved through a specific date and should also state that they cover the purchase price of state of Illinois property only. All letters of credit must be approved prior to the sale.
