About Us

SurplusByDesign was started in 2007 with a commitment to providing the ultimate value to customers in consumer electronics!

We work hard to offer low prices, high-quality products, and outstanding customer service.

We have a team of dedicated people who do everything from sourcing, testing, listing, and shipping product, as well as answering customer inquiries.



We gather our inventory from retailers all over the country! We do not drop ship items from China!


Each unit is tested by our own A+ certified technicians. This includes computers, MP3 players, LCD Monitors, and cameras. Some new items do not come in a sealed box (no shrinkwrap & no sticker seal) We do open the box to photo the product but it has never been used. For items that are sealed in their original packaging, we do not break this seal, so that we can pass along the excitement of un-boxing your very own brand new toy! 

Listings On Surplus & eBay

Each unit is cleaned and photographed in our facility. We do not use stock photographs for auctions (on our eBay sales channel) unless the unit is sealed. For auctions, every picture that you see is of the exact item that you are bidding on! Items on Surplus or eBay, where you see a quantity listing or a fixed price, the images are a stock photo of one of the units for sale, but may not be of the exact item that you will receive. Please refer to the condition of the item.

We are committed to providing clear and accurate listings of each and every item that we sell. Please read carefully through the listing before placing your bid, adding to your cart or submitting a question. We are happy to answer your questions, but please check the listing for the information first.


At SurplusByDesign, we know that you have paid good money for your electronics, and you want to start enjoying them right away! We promise to ship your items to you within 1 business day after your payment clears. Better still, within Canada we ship your item with UPS (some exceptions apply), so you get it as fast as possible! Most shipments within Ontario and Quebec are delivered the next day! Items going to the USA are shipped with Canada Post to help avoid brokerage fees (some exceptions apply).


International Shipping

We use exclusively DHL Express to deliver our packages around the globe to our customers. PLEASE NOTE: Import duties and brokerage fees are not included in the item price or shipping charges. These charges are the buyer's responsibility. All U.S. buyers MUST include their phone # in their shipping details. Please check with your local customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to bidding/buying, we are not able to estimate/quote these charges. These charges are normally collected by the delivering freight (shipping) company or when you pick the item up. We DO NOT mark merchandise values below value or mark items as "gifts"--- US, Canadian, and International government regulations prohibit such behavior.

We send you a tracking number as soon as we ship your package so that you can see the progress of your package.

Customer Service

We know that you can't put a price on customer service, and we know that you expect nothing but the best. At SurplusByDesign, we are committed to meeting and exceeding your expectations! We try to answer every inquiry, however please appreciate that we have limited office hours, and can't always respond immediately. 

Our office hours are from 8:00AM - 2:00PM (EASTERN STANDARD TIME) Monday to Friday. Within these hours, we will answer your questions as quickly as we can. If you have a question on a weekend, or in the evening, please understand that we cannot be at the computer at all times to answer your questions, but we will get back to you as soon as we can.

We will announce price changes and new units through our marketing channels. Keep a close eye on these as this may be where the next great deal is revealed.
