Used Industrial Machinery Auctions

Federal Equipment focuses on major industries, such as pharmaceutical, chemical, packaging, food & beverage, and more. However, we do not hesitate to learn more about any industries outside of our core competencies. In this case, we will either run the auction or refer the seller to a competent auction partner who can handle the auction. With an auction, the equipment typically stays at the manufacturing facility and the seller participates in the sale. Nearly 100% of Federal Equipment’s auctions are held online.

Federal Equipment has over 65 years of experience and expertise buying and selling used, idle, or surplus industrial equipment.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between an auction and a liquidation?

Auctions take place very quickly, over a short period of time. They typically involve the equipment remaining at the manufacturing facility and the seller usually participates in the sale. Liquidation is the process of selling the assets of a business over a longer period of time in order to attain higher values that are closer to market value. In the case of a liquidation, Federal Equipment purchases the equipment, removes it, and brings it back to our warehouses to resell.

What should I know before I enter an auction?

There are several important points to keep in mind prior to registering for an auction, particularly as most of Federal Equipment’s auctions are online:

  • Review the terms & conditions of sale.
  • Pay attention so you are not outbid.
  • Evaluate the condition of the item you’re interested in before bidding – schedule an inspection to see the equipment before bidding begins.
  • Decide before bidding begins, the price you’re willing to pay for an item.

What is the difference between an absolute auction and a reserve auction?

An absolute auction is one where the property is sold to the highest bidder with no minimum or reserve price that must be met to complete the auction sale. In a reserve auction, there is a price that has been set between the seller and the auctioneer that must be met to complete the sale. This type of auction is typically used to provide the seller with security that they will receive a certain price to meet their sale goal.
