Friday, July 10th, 2015

Since you’ve decided to auction some of your farm equipment, be proactive when it comes to preparing for your auction. There are some things you can do to ensure you get a better price from your farm equipment auction. Preparing your equipment for auction, finding a great auction company and advertising can bring better prices.

Get ready

It’s a known fact that your farm equipment will bring in more money if it’s been well maintained, kept clean, and taken care of. Before taking your equipment to auction, make sure it’s in the best possible condition. This could be as simple as a heavy duty scrubbing, a fresh coat of paint, or a change of batteries. Your farm equipment should look as new as possible in order to be auctioned for the best price. Appearance and quality always bring more money for your equipment, so take care of your items and present them well on the big day.

Find a great auction company

In order to get the highest price for your equipment, you should shop around for the best auction company. Find a company that specializes in appraising and auctioning farm equipment, and ensure they are licensed and accredited. Make sure they have years of experience, and the company has a solid reputation for getting the best prices at farm equipment auctions. Ask questions about how the auctions work, such as if the company handles the collection of money and the sales tax so you won’t be surprised. Once you’ve found a great auction company to use, the rest is simple.

Advertise, advertise, advertise

The best way to get potential buyers interested in your upcoming auction is to advertise! There are numerous ways to advertise your auction and pique buyers’ interest. First, direct mailing is a great way to reach prior clients and buyers to notify them of your upcoming equipment auction. Numerous buyers will see detailed information about the items you’ll be auctioning and can make plans to attend the auction and bid on your equipment. Another great way to reach buyers is through the Internet. The auction company’s website should provide buyers with all of the information needed regarding the auction. Advertise your auction in magazines, on the radio, in newsletters and newspapers. Multi-media advertising is sure to reach a large audience and bring in excited bidders.
