The Government Is Auctioning Off Cheap Stuff In Ontario & You Can Get A Car For Under $3K RN

If you love a good bargain and watch a little too much Storage Wars,you may be interested in the heaps of stuff the Government of Canada is auctioning off.

GCSurplus is basically the federal government's unofficial thrift store where surplus goods are auctioned off to the highest bidder online, and that includes forfeited goods from law enforcement agencies such as cars and name-brand items.

Of course, what they're offering isn't always the cream of the crop, and you may find a lot of office goods and spare tires in between any high-value items.

However, if you roll up your sleeves, stretch out your fingers and scroll for a while, you can find some pretty cool items for sale.

Here's a look at some of the hidden gems up for auction in Ontario.

2011 Ford Escape Hybrid


Current bid: $2,215

Details: This 2011 Ford Escape Hybrid runs and drives and comes with power windows, cruise control, keyless entry, power door locks, deep-tinted glass windows and a whole bunch of other features.

The vehicle was previously owned and operated by the Government of Canada.

2009 Nissan Versa SL Hatchback


Cuurent bid: $1,500.00

Details: This blue beauty may be old, but it's also starting out with a pretty cheap bid. The car runs, drives and features air conditioning, an AM/FM radio, wipers, airbags, child safety locks, tilt steering and more.

One issue to consider before placing a bid is that the tread is low on the tires, and they may need to be replaced. The brakes will also require some TLC and the hood latch is rusty.

On the outside of the car, there are signs of wear and tear with rust, paint chips, dents, scratches and foggy headlights. The inside will also need a good scrub before your cruising.

The car is also sold without mechanical inspection.
