  Auctions - Personal Property and Auto Auction

The County of San Diego Public Administrator/Public Guardian has a new partnership with a professional auction company, TNT Auction, Inc. In addition to the live auctions, TNT also conducts internet auctions, which will allow our customers to bid on Items from the comfort of their own home.

Items available for sale at the live and online auctions include vehicles, furniture, appliances, electronics, household items, jewelry, artwork, antiques, coins, collectibles and much more. A sample of items available at the next auction can be viewed in our Auction Gallery!

Proceeds from the auction are returned to the individual estates in which the assets originated. Monies earned by decedent estates are distributed to the decedent's heirs or beneficiaries. Funds earned by conservatorship estates are used to pay for pay for housing, medical care and other personal needs for frail and elderly citizens who have been found by the Court to be unable to provide for their own care
