State Surplus Vehicles - State Agency Procedures to Surplus

How To

Process your vehicle(s) to send to auction:
  1. Complete a DPS-29 for each vehicle 
    - Verify the VIN on the DPS-29 with the VIN on the actual vehicle
    - Ensure the MILEAGE is correct**
    - Fill in the CODING section
    - Sign the DPS-29
    **If mileage is incorrect on the DPS-29 it could result in an incorrect title being produced.  This could void a sale, if not noticed, and/or cause delays when a request for title correction is sent to DMV.  If mileage is unknown and cannot be verified, enter TMU for mileage.
  2. Locate the original Certificate of Origin, Title, or court documents if it is a seized vehicle or asset forfeiture (if it is a seized vehicle or asset forfeiture, please be specific as to which).  If an original Certificate of Origin or Title cannot be located, obtain and complete a Motor Vehicle Q-1 form from the DMV, along with a Lost CO Letter.  A Q-1 form is needed for asset forfeiture/seized property vehicles, but a letter is not.
  3. Sign the Certificate of Origin/Title as the seller.  Leave the mileage and the 'buyer/sold to' areas blank on this form.
  4. Email Kristin Wright at the Property Room, and the DAS Surplus team with the DPS-29 attached in Excel format.  The information will be entered in the vendor data system and Property Room will send a manifest.  Have the tow truck driver sign this manifest at pickup and keep for your records.
  5. Have a copy of the DPS-29 and keys ready for the tow company when they pick up the vehicle.
  6. Mail completed originals (DPS-29, CO/Title/Q-1, Letter/Court Docs) to:
