The rank and file of ex-military items – from shop tools to gym equipment – it’s all here.
Recently, GovPlanet expanded its contract with the U.S. Department of Defense’s (DoD) Defense Logistics Agency (known as the DLA) to purchase, manage and sell non-rolling stock surplus assets. So what exactly are non-rolling stock assets? It’s a term that encompasses all manner of equipment or items used by the military that doesn’t roll on tires or tracks – everything from sewing machines, table saws and engine parts to tents, ammo cans, and filing cabinets. If the military used it, chances are you’ll find it on GovPlanet – and chances are it’s also “man-cave-ready”.
Here’s a look at a few unique items that are currently available to give you an idea of the type of non-rolling stock items you’ll find from the DLA on GovPlanet.
