With convenient selling options and an experienced sales team, we make it easy to sell your equipment quickly and for a competitive price. We pride ourselves in being large enough to get the job done, but small enough to know each of our customers.

  • Direct Purchase – Martin & Martin buys equipment and packages of equipment and trucks every day. Whether you have one piece or one hundred pieces, we will make you a competitive cash offer for a direct purchase.
  • Straight Commission – Sellers can always consign their equipment, trucks, real estate, or other items to one of our monthly live auctions or timed auctions.
  • Net Guarantee – Martin & Martin can offer a guarantee for any size or number of pieces of equipment consigned to any one of our auctions.

Before the Auction

For the most successful auction experience, you may want to consider several steps prior to selling:

  • Search our auction results for the prices that similar items have been bringing and price your items accordingly.
  • List your items for auction using our Consign Online feature or by completing the listing sheet and returning it to our office.
  • Turn in all titles, obtain payoffs, or terminations for any liened items that you may want to sell. For assistance with this please email Tess Wallace or call 864.947.7888.
  • Arrange for an appraisal of your items for auction, if necessary.
  • Arrange for transportation of your items for auction, if necessary.
