We don’t apologize. In fact, it’s kind of our thing. We buy salvage, surplus and overstock from trucking companies, manufacturers, distributors and online retailers. Typically we don’t know what we are buying until it shows up. This seemingly foolish business model is how we can sell stuff so cheap. By purchasing truckloads of unknown products, we incur certain risks and thus demand lower prices from the sellers and pass that savings on to you.
and Much more!
We like to say, “Everything gets here by accident.” Whether a trucking company damages a carton, a retailer over-orders, or a manufacturer builds too much product, they eventually need to cut their losses and liquidate the merchandise.
Our prices are too low! No, really. Many manufacturers and distributors prohibit us from selling product within a certain distance of authorized retailers. Our retail prices are often cheaper than the big guys pay wholesale. Besides… Sedro-Woolley is a nice little town.
We get this question a lot and the answer is always changing. About the time we think we’ve seen it all, something comes through the door that surprises us. However, some highlights include coffins, an industrial laser, a cryogenic freezer, a 10-ft tall marble crucifix, a fuselage for an amphibious airplane, and an infrared railroad scanner worth $250,000.

Trucking companies call this “over freight,”
