Auction Process

At Martin & Martin Auctioneers, Inc., our auctions are designed to be straightforward and hassle-free. From our convenient bidding options to our streamlined registration process, we make it easy to buy the equipment you need. We pride ourselves in being large enough to get the job done, but small enough to know each of our customers.

Bidding Options

We offer several methods for potential buyers to bid on items at our auctions. Whichever method you choose, please rest assured that you will be provided the highest level of customer service, attention to detail, and responsiveness to your needs.

  • Onsite Bidding – Onsite bidding is the traditional auction bidding method. With this bidding option, you can search our inventory prior to the auction to check for the items you need. Arrive at the auction site on auction day, check the schedule for the items you are interested in, go to the bidding area, and start bidding.
  • Online Bidding – If you can't make it to the auction facility on auction day, online bidding allows you to take part in the auction from any location. With this bidding option, you simply register online prior to the auction. Once registered, login to the online bidding system on auction day, join the auction, and start bidding online in real time.
  • Timed Auctions – In addition to our live auctions, we sell some items online in timed auctions. With this option, you register online prior to the auction. Bidding is typically open for several days, so you can login to the timed auction system at any point during the auction period, set your maximum price for specific items, and let the system bid for you.

After the Auction

  • Pay for your new items.
  • Arrange for transportation of your equipment, if necessary.
