      USA liquidation, surplus, and wholesale closeout companies

      A quick search for a good, solid list of USA liquidation/surplus/wholesale closeout companies and liquidator websites brought not much. Id rather put the forum to work and get an answer in one place. Please help!

      Glad to know we’re a go-to site for you. One cannot really separate liquidation companies from liquidation website these days, and after a good bit of looking around, I’ve come up with a good bundle of names, in no particular order—

      Liquidation.com
      Maintained as a service of Liquidity Services, Inc., the site provides pro buyers with a marketplace to buy commercial and government surplus. Bulk lots can be bought by truckload, pallet, or small package. Products include apparel, computers, electronics, housewares, industrial equipment, vehicles ranging in condition from new-in-box to returns.

      Closeoutservices.com/
      Toys, gifts, housewares, novelties, ad specialties, &c. Closeout Services buys only closeout and liquidation units in “substantial quantities” and “only under extraordinarily advantageous conditions”. Provides articles and resources for the professional buyer.

      Surplus.net
      Very simple site functioning as a resource for the run of liquidation products-- closeout, surplus, &c, and is a member of the Internet Marketing Community (IMC) and the Internet Marketing Association of Surplus Dealers (IMASD).

      AAA Online Auctions
      At the moment, the site is under overhaul, and so just serves as a webform to request AAA’s catalogue. Usually is an online auction site for salvaged product, closeout, and surplus units.

      Dollar Days
      Focused on the small business entrepreneur, Dollar Days is an online supplier of general merchandise, wholesale and closeout products. Includes a special closeout corner where it offers a wide selection of wholesale closeout merchandise.

      JD Closeouts
      A hub-site for pallet lots and closeout merchandise. Not an auction site, but rather works as a distributor.

      Liquidation Overstock
      Claims fifteen years of working to provide a source for overstock, closeouts, liquidation, surplus, excess inventory, below wholesale, and department store closeouts, liquidation, surplus and excess inventory.

      Pallets Mart
      A primary source for salvage suppliers and closeouts distributors throughout the States. Offers pallet lots of closeout, salvage, and overstock merchandise.

      Rhino Mart
      Dealer in wholesale liquidations, department store returns, &c operating constantly from 1994.

      Salvage Closeouts
      Deals in wholesale and surplus merchandise. Include returns, salvage, and surplus from US department stores.

      Sav On Closeouts
      Wholesale company since 1986. Deals mostly with novelties.

      TDW Closeouts
      A worldwide distributor and exporter of closeout and salvage from department stores.

      Via Trading Corporation
      Los Angeles-based, family-owned company that deals in the gamut of liquidation merchandise.

      D.J.H. Inc.
      Founded in 1993, DJH Inc is a wholesaler focusing on name brand surplus.

      Most sources hereafter are more of the same-

      1 ABC Closeouts
      1 Liquidators Inc.
      1st Choice Surplus Merchandise
      ABC Wholesale Products
      American Merchandise Liquidators

      This list is by no means exhaustive. This is just what I came up with in about half an hour. Also, rare is the site on this list that doesn’t offer a newsletter for subscribers.

      Be certain to do your research and check any of these sites against each other. Obvious advice is obvious when you get it, but youd be surprised just how many people dont check out a site before using it.

      Did some digging myself, and came up with a decent selection. Again, as Markcomp pointed out, do your own research before you dedicate any capital to these sites. I haven’t done much in the way of liquidation buys, but I’d be interested in seeing some individual experiences and reviews--

      Holy cow! I ask for a list and I get two. Thanks especially to McDonnell for the descriptions. A lot of these sites seem to be variations on a theme-- auctions and community, with some direct sellers in the mix. Going to do some more digging and get some reviews before I decide, but this was a huge help. Thank you!
