Recently Sold & Upcoming Auctions

Aucto Blog | 2017-05-09 18:20:02 EST

It’s no secret that ‘buying used’ industrial equipment and machinery is becoming more popular than ‘buying new.’  Individuals and larger companies realize that ‘buying used’ means huge savings. In fact, the savings typically outweigh the minimal risks associated with purchasing used equipment. As well, a trusted marketplace can reduce most, if not all, risks associated with purchasing used equipment and machinery.

Below we’re highlighting some recent sales and upcoming auctions to keep an eye on.

Recent Sales

A successful industrial auction depends on realistic pricing expectations. For auctioneers, this means setting starting bids that promote an active and competitive bidding stream. While the featured equipment below sold for 50 to 60 per cent of their approximate ‘new’ value, their starting bids were set significantly lower to ensure maximum interest and activity.
