eBay Auctions Terms of Sale

All sales are final. No refunds, returns, exchanges, or turndowns.

Condition: Items are offered “as is”, with no warranty. Known defects are listed, but the absence of any indicated deficiencies does not mean the item may not have deficiencies. Bidders are encouraged to inspect items for sale, prior to bidding. Information and inspection arrangements can be made by calling the contact at the location of the sale.

Payment: Successful bidders are required to submit full payment (including New York State sales tax, unless otherwise exempt) within 2 calendar days of the bid award.

  • All payments are made through eBay.
  • Per eBay’s policy for local pickups, the winning bidder must change the shipping address to the pickup location listed below during the payment process. DO NOT USE YOUR HOME ADDRESS OR OTHER LOCATION. This change is required to correctly calculate sales tax collected. Failure to input the pickup location will result in the delay/cancellation of the sale.
  • Receipts are only processed by our office Monday – Friday from 8:00 am – 3:30 pm EST, excluding holidays.
  • If you have any questions, please call 518-457-6335.

Shipping: OGS does not offer packing or shipping. The buyer is responsible for picking up all purchases at all locations.

Pickup: The buyer must pick up items within 10 business days of receiving a property release. Please call the contact at the location of the sale to arrange for the pickup. Pickups must be made Monday through Friday during normal business hours. The ownership of all property not picked-up within said timeframe will revert to the Office of General Services-no financial compensation will be made to the buyer.

  • Photo identification is required at time of pickup.
  • Masks must be worn at all times and will not be provided by the facility. If applicable, screening at all locations where building access is required.

  • The sale will be made to the highest bidder at the time of the auction expiration.
