Every Wednesday, during our weekly online auction, GovPlanet finds new homes for the military surplus HMMWV Humvee Vehicles we sell. But we don't always get to hear about what happens to the vehicles after they're sold. Fortunately, customer Colin Gorman of Henderson, NV, was nice enough to share with us his experience and all the cool transformations he did to the HMMWV Humvee Vehicle he bought from GovPlanet. Here's Colin, in his own words, describing the sale process and the modifications he performed.
GovPlanet began selling Humvees from the U.S. Department of Defense to the public back in 2014. Now it’s set to release two new military vehicles to the U.S. public market: the ITV (Internally Transportable Vehicle), nicknamed the “Growler”, and the MTVR (Medium Tactical Vehicle Replacement).

If you’re a U.S.-based business, you might know about a U.S. tax deduction called Section 179. It’s been approved for the 2018 tax year – and the deduction limit has been increased to $1,000,000 for 2018. That’s double the deduction limit compared to last year. And it now applies to the purchase of used equipment, too.
Last week at our Kruse Energy auction in Odessa, TX, we set a new company record selling this Loadcraft 2000HP SCR drilling rig for a staggering US$5.5 million, making it the most expensive rig we’ve ever sold as a company.

When it comes to heavy equipment, nothing is as pervasive as the dozer. It can be found hard at work clearing ground, pushing material, removing stumps or performing rough grading within the construction, agricultural, logging and mining industries. First conceived by Benjamin Holt in 1904, the dozer – or crawler tractor – has been the muscle behind many projects for over 100 years.
Leveraging the live auction expertise of Ritchie Bros. and online prowess of IronPlanet, GovPlanet now offers state and local governments the best of both worlds. On September 5, GovPlanet will host its first-ever live auction, for the Pennsylvania Department of General Services, selling more than 350 equipment items and trucks without reserves in a single day. Highlights include excavators, dump trucks, paving rollers, snow plows, stone chippers, wheel and backhoe loaders, lights, mowers, and more.
A few months ago we gave you a deeper look into the kind of inventory you can expect from GovPlanet's non-rolling stock surplus auctions. Now, we're excited to announce our first GovPlanet auction dedicated specificly to NRS items.
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”.
