Logistics Center for Moving Services/Surplus Property

Bowling Green State University’s Logistics Center provides a myriad of services including moving, surplus property management, bed lofting and delofting, and various other event logistical needs.

Surplus equipment and furniture are items that are no longer of use to the original owners. It is important that all possibilities of disposal be explored before sending anything to the landfill.  Surplus accomplishes this by focusing on the following methods:


When possible, equipment and furniture items are re-purposed for other University departments, in lieu of purchasing new items. To search available equipment/furniture or to schedule a time to visit the warehouse to view surplus items, please visit our online Directory.

Equipment and furniture that are not distributed the Surplus Warehouse gets sold on Govdeals.com


Additionally, unused office supplies can be distributed through various outlets. One such effort is the “Once Upon a Desk” initiative. This program provides an opportunity to donate unused office supplies or items to the BGSU ReStore. Learn more about Re-Use Initiatives.


Group Photo B 12 2018 When items are not in working condition or are unable to be sold, the University recycles all possible components including electronics, batteries, paper/cardboard and metal.
