We love having the opportunity to conduct auctions for cities looking to sell their unneeded assets. We want to help them pour resources back into their communities so that they can continue to develop and improve the welfare of their city. It’s great to be able to partner with these departments.

Are you a member of a Department of public works or another city entity looking to sell off unneeded assets? Consider holding an auction with us! We would love to talk with you about auctioning off your equipment in an auction focused solely on your city. If you only have a few items that you want to sell, you would be better off selling your equipment in one of our consignment auctions that include equipment from multiple municipalities and organizations. Contact us today to get in touch with us about holding your own auction.

Buying equipment from an auction is one of the best ways to update your city or business’s equipment, as you are able to pay exactly what you value a piece of equipment at and can often get a much better price than what you would pay for the equipment new from a dealership. And most of the equipment that we see in our auctions is in great working condition! Click here to view our upcoming live and online auctions!
