Many people attend auctions to look for particular items like antique toys, farm equipment, and heavy machinery. Estate auctions are known for providing these items and much more! Here some that you may not have considered looking for at estate auctions.

1. Vehicles (and related items)

Antique, vintage, and modern vehicles are common at estate auctions. You can find everything from Model-Ts to Chevy trucks to convertibles. Enthusiasts often include vehicle parts and repair tools in their collections, whether for maintenance purposes or just the enjoyment of the hunt. This means that you could find extremely useful lots if you are a similar type of collector.

2. Farm equipment

Used farm equipment is commonly found in some areas of the country. If you are looking for usable equipment, you can find it at estate auctions. If you prefer antiques, you can find those too. Sometimes collectors end up with broken tractors and other equipment that can be used for parts or even decorations.

3. Collectibles

Estate auctions don’t just offer large items. You can find a large variety of small collectibles as well. Model kits with cars and airplanes, die-cast vehicles, bottles, coins, cards, decorative glass or ceramics, lighting, license plates, hats, and more can be found at these events.

4. Tools

If you are looking for usable or collectible tools, estate auctions are a great option. For example, you can find larger items like planters, saws, sandblasters, and storage as well as welding tools, sharpening files, drills, and even screwdrivers. Look out for associated items like toolboxes, power cords, clamps, and bolts to get an even better deal.

5. Antiques

These items are collectibles, but they are in a league of their own. For example, there are a lot of people interested in vintage toys so you can find them online, at garage sales, and at auctions for relatively good prices (depending on the item). But antique toys are highly valuable. You will typically not find them at garage sales or resale websites like Etsy. Here are some other antiques you can find at auction that may not be widely available elsewhere.

  • Furniture
  • Jewelry
  • Art
  • Books, guides, and manuals
  • Advertisement signs
  • Hood ornaments
  • Bicycles and related parts
  • Household items like irons and kitchenware
