Public auctions

The U.S. Embassy Belgrade occasionally sells surplus movable property (SMP) via a Web Based Electronic Auction. All of the items are exclusively auctioned via the Internet. Each auction will be activated for a period of time, usually it will be active from Monday to Friday lasting two weeks. During this period you can actively take part and submit your bid for the surplus property. In order to place your bids at any of our auction, you must first register here. All the necessary information you need to know about the auction are available on https://online-auction.state.gov/. For any additional information you are welcomed to send an email to: BLGAuctions@state.gov.

We strongly recommend you read all the information published online regarding the condition of items being offered for sale before submitting bids, as lots are offered on an “as is and where is” basis and are non refundable once payment is made and cannot be returned once picked up. Maximum number of bids on one item is stated at each item. Increasing your bids is possible only in the local currency name.

Payment for the items is possible only by bank money transfer to the Embassy bank account. In the case you have bid and won more than one item you can pay the total amount due of all items in one payment but all lot items must be identified as described in item 1 above. Items can be retrieved only when successful payment has been received. Receipt of payment is considered complete when money reaches the U.S. Embassy bank account.

Note: It could take more than one day to transfer money from your bank to the U.S. Embassy bank. It will not be possible to pick up your items if your payment is not indicated on the U.S. Embassy bank account.

In order to retrieve your items, you must present the original receipt of bank money transfer with all required details included in the payment paragraph above or a printed version of the Internet banking money transfer.

Any paid items that are not picked up during the scheduled time frame will be disposed of, and there will be no possibility for their retrieval. In special cases or circumstances, you may arrange a different pick-up date and time by contacting the auction manager.

After successful confirmation of payment for your items, our staff will move your items out to the front of the storage building. From that time on, you are the owner of your merchandise. You will have the full responsibility for subsequent handling procedures and removal from Embassy property in a timely manner. If items are not removed in a timely manner they may be considered abandoned and disposed of.
