State departments of transportation (DOTs) own and manage fleets of vehicles and equipment. An important part of fleet management is the process of disposing of fleet assets once vehicles and equipment reach an age, level of use, or condition that limits usefulness for state DOT operations. Once the decision is made to dispose of these assets, a key objective is to maximize net proceeds from the sale.

NCHRP Research Report 1074: Maximizing Proceeds from the Fleet Asset Disposal Sales Process, from TRB's National Cooperative Highway Research Program, describes approaches to selling surplus vehicles and equipment that can increase realized prices and net returns to a state DOT.

Supplemental to the report are a spreadsheet-based tool in two formats (Protected and Unlocked) for comparing potential returns from various sales channels, a fact sheet, an implementation memo, and a presentation.
