How sales are advertised: Postal vehicle sales are announced in local post offices, newspapers, and television advertisements. Personal property sales of excess goods are advertised in local newspapers and post offices in the geographic areas where sales are held.

Lost, damaged, and unclaimed goods are sold at two sites. They also maintain mailing lists.
