Get out your wallets! The Government of Canada is auctioning off so many items, so if you're looking for some designer threads, a minivan, or even a giant spool of rope, they may have what you're after.

The federal government has items up for auction on their GCSurplus platform on an ongoing basis. The goods range from surplus products the feds are trying to get rid of, to things that have been "forfeited" to provincial or federal law enforcement.

Taking a look through the site, you'll see that there is a whole lot of interesting and random stuff for sale.

Here's a quick look at some of the biggest bargains you can bid on right now.

GCSurplus

Starting bid: $4,000

Details: This 2013 Dodge Grand Caravan has around 138,000 kilometres on it, so it still has a whole lot of drive left.

According to the listing, the car does need a bit of work as there are some minor scuffs and things that need cleaning.

It's also not currently running due to a battery issue and problems with the engine turning over. Nothing the mechanically-minded probably can't figure out, though.

Starting bid: $1,100

This 2010 Skandic 550 Wide Track Skidoo is in alright shape, with some aesthetic issues and a missing battery being the biggest immediate issue. But, the listing does say that an in-depth mechanical inspection hasn't taken place, so be aware of issues cropping up if you opt to grab this bad boy.
