Peoples Auction was formed in 1963 to provide auction services for the farm and business community. We specialize in heavy trucks, automobiles, farm & construction equipment, recreational vehicles, machine shop equipment, tools, business equipment and furniture. For the past 50 years we have conducted auctions for municipalities, U.S. Bankruptcy Courts, lending institutions, U.S. Small Business Administration, complete business liquidations, real estate, estate liquidations, dealers and individuals. Trained in the live auction method of selling, we realized that selling assets online to the ultimate consumer was the best way to grow our company for the future. With our innovative processes, we pride ourselves in being able to sell just about anything. We strive to stay on the cutting edge of the online auction industry. What can we help you sell? Or buy?




1. Inspection

You must register before bidding.

Most events feature a preview, inspection or open house one or two days prior to the conclusion of the auction. This is a showcase of the items at their physical location.

Bidders should carefully consider the descriptions, photos, details and terms of sale, then bid accordingly if there is no preview.


2. Bidding

Once you are registered bidding is easy. Visit an online event with an active catalog. Click the link for online bidding.

Place the “Next Bid Required” in the “your bid” box and your ‘Max” bid in the “your maximum” box (max bids are optional) at the bottom of EACH page enter your username and password. Click the submit bid button. You will need to confirm the terms before the bid is accepted.


3. Payment

Accepted forms of payment include Visa or MasterCard. You must have available balance on your credit card for your online purchases. At the conclusion of the event your credit card on file will be automatically charged for the entire amount of your purchases.

Please note:A 15% buyer’s premium will be added to each purchase. If you bid $100.00 at check out you will be charged $115.00.


4. Removal

All items are required to be picked up at the physical location noted in the event details. Peoples does not offer any type of shipping methods or assistance during removal. Our clients often need their location empty so items not picked up during the removal time will be considered abandoned.

Please note: Buyers must bring all tools, people and equipment to safely remove won items.


What We Sell

Today, Peoples Auctions conducts internet-only sales both large and small throughout the United States.

The flexibility and reach of the internet is ideally suited for all types of equipment and inventories.

Peoples sales include high-end designer furniture stores, diesel generators, party rental companies, IT switchgear, franchise restaurants, corporate headquarters, office furniture and business equipment, vehicles and heavy equipment and estate goods, to name a few.


The Un-Ebay

Unlike eBay or CraigsList, which sell a single item to a single buyer, is an event based liquidation site. Each event has a location, scheduled preview, closing and removal and sells many assets to many buyers.

We are a little bit traditional (with previews and pickups), a little bit eBay (online bidding), and something altogether different (event based, photo catalogs and credit card only payments).


Custom Auction Solutions

As specialists in the sale of commercial or personal property, our innovation, expertise and marketing skills consistently result in the highest possible return. Committed to our client’s satisfaction, we give the same care and attention when selling one item or an entire business. We welcome the opportunity to discuss your project and evaluate your assets at no charge.

Call us to discuss your orderly liquidation or specialty auction project at (757) 421-2525 or contact us on our contact page.
