How Do You Find Government Surplus Barges for Sale?

Government surplus barges are sold on different websites depending on which branch of government is conducting the sale. Sites conducting sales include Govsales.gov and Govliquidation.com.

When purchasing a surplus barge, it is important to know about any environmental concerns associated with the vessel. In states such as Louisiana, the inclusion of a gas-free certificate for non-gas hauling barges is critical. Surplus barges are often located in many different areas of the United States, and it is not advisable to purchase any vessel sight-unseen. Surplus auction sites often charge an additional "buyer's premium" on top of the listed price. Non-government surplus commercial barges are also available on other online auction sites.
