Auction Types

CIA offers several Auction types to maximize the return for seller's and ease of purchase for buyer's.

Our staff's professional management skills insure that we will meet your needs in an effective and efficient manner. Eye catching mail brochures, email blasts, effective Internet, newspaper and trade journal advertisements enable us to bring buyers to our auctions from far and wide. Our attention to detail and well-organized sale site preparation insure the maximum return for our clients, be it live on site or via the Internet. Allow our professional team to design a disposition program that suits your unique situation.


Live Onsite & Webcast Auction

This is our most standard type of auction.  Potential buyers have the ability to come spend the day with us and bid live onsite.  Many onsite buyers end up buying more items than expected as they come across equipment that they can't pass up.  The auction webcast provides our off-site customers the convenience of bidding over the Internet from their office or anywhere in the world.  The online customer is bidding simultaneously against the onsite customer as the auctioneer sells a piece of equipment.  


Online Only Auction

Provides an option to our clients who need to liquidate smaller lots of equipment while still offering them the same worldwide exposure to our buyer base as our Live Auctions.


Live Onsite Only Auction

On-site buyers have the opportunity to visually inspect the equipment until the moment it is sold, in addition to experiencing the magnetic atmosphere of spirited bidding that only a live auction can produce.
