PropertyRoom.Com Adds Seattle to Its Growing List of Service Center Locations

Online Auction Site's Regional Facilities Offer Unique Benefits to Law Enforcement Partners and Consumers

SAN CLEMENTE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- September 27, 2005 -- PropertyRoom.com, the only full-service online auction site serving law enforcement agencies and consumers nationwide, today announced the opening of its newest regional service center in Seattle.

The Seattle processing center, which serves as a storage and distribution point for merchandise from law enforcement property rooms throughout the Northwest region, is PropertyRoom.com's third such center nationwide and is part of the company's ongoing expansion. The company also operates service centers in New York and Los Angeles, and plans to open additional regional centers in 2006.

PropertyRoom.com, a direct competitor with eBay, Overstock.com, Ubid.com, Yahoo.com and Amazon.com in the auction space, uses the service centers as regional collection points for thousands of items from police department property rooms region-wide, including stolen and forfeited consumer electronics, power tools, house wares, jewelry, and more. All items will be sold in real-time online auctions at www.PropertyRoom.com.

"The opening of our Seattle facility underscores PropertyRoom.com's commitment to our Pacific Northwest law enforcement partners and retail customers," said Tom Lane, founder and chairman of PropertyRoom.com. "The center serves as an abundant storage facility for local property room items and provides unique distribution options for our customers."

The center will also benefit consumers in the Pacific Northwest, who now have the option to retrieve their purchased items through will-call at the Seattle service center, saving them time and money.

"The expansion of PropertyRoom.com to include a new warehouse facility in the state of Washington reinforces our confidence in the company's ability to sustain the level of service they have provided in our region thus far," said Kelly Donnelly, Mercer Island Police Department. "Not only has the new location enabled greater access to the staff and increased frequency of pick ups, it has provided new local employment opportunities and generated additional income for WA state and its citizens. I've always had a relentless faith in using auction services from PropertyRoom.com, and now our use directly supports our community."

PropertyRoom.com recently announced the addition of merchant sellers to its growing auction offerings and the Seattle service center will expand on that growth by providing increased convenience for the company's customers and partners.
