More than 20,000 scooters that are electric to Superpedestrian will be auctioned off later this month, along with other equipment from the startup’s U.S. operations, after closing its doors December 31.

Two “global online auction” listings have appeared on the website of Silicon Valley Disposition, an online market for “surplus assets,” which will feature scooters and other paraphernalia from cities Superpedestrian operated in, like Seattle, Los Angeles, and New York City. The auction that is first January 23, and certainly will operate for 3 days. A auction that is successive set to run from January 29-January 31.

Superpedestrian initially got into the shared scooter business — which it called Link — in 2020 when it acquired “substantially all” of the assets of Boston-based Zagster, part of a wave of consolidation during the COVID-19 pandemic. As it operated its shared scooter fleets in dozens of cities around the globe though it raised $125 million less than two years ago, the company struggled financially in 2023. Fresh capital and a merger that is potential on the horizon as recently as November, For Millionaires reported last month; whatever talks had materialized fell apart. Its demise came just days before Bird, a leader that is former the room, submitted for section 11 personal bankruptcy.

The startup’s leadership later told staff members December 15 it was closing straight down U.S. functions at the conclusion of the season and checking out a-sale of their assets that are european. (The status of the business that is european ambiguous. Superpedestrian’s CEO Assaf Biderman didn’t react to a request for opinion.) The employees whom stuck it during those last a couple of weeks had been assigned, to some extent, with retrieving the company’s many scooters from places round the nation before securing the services when it comes to time that is last December 31, relating to one previous employee.
