Where Do Auction Vehicles and Equipment Come From?

Knowing where auction equipment and vehicles come from can be incredibly valuable to the buyer. Many fleet owners and sellers use auctions hosted by a reputable third party. These auction events appeal to buyers who are looking for well-maintained equipment and a chance to grab a deal. Auctions provide easy access to equipment and vehicles that buyers need for work or home.

J.J. Kane Can Meet Your Needs

At J.J. Kane, we have an abundance of used equipment and vehicles available for you to purchase, direct from the owners. The majority of auction inventory comes from companies who have surplus equipment and vehicles that they no longer need. Frequent sellers include Danella, Duke Energy, Florida Power and Light Company, National Grid, Pacific Gas and Electric, Rural Electric Cooperatives, Municipal Governments, and more. These organizations provide surplus and retiring equipment which we review and then place into an auction. Other auction sellers include small business owners, contractors, investor-owned utilities, telephone and cable TV companies or anyone else that needs to sell their vehicles or equipment.

Why This is Good for You

Many auction consignors replace their equipment and vehicles on a regular schedule to maintain consistency in their fleets. Doing so enables them to focus on their core, whether that be delivering electric power, building construction, or providing government services. These groups use our auctions to sell their equipment and vehicles in a fast and efficient manor. In turn, this provides the perfect opportunity for auction buyers to purchase some good quality equipment and vehicles at a price that doesn’t break the bank!

Difference between Government and Absolute Auctions

What’s the difference? Government and Absolute Auctions

For buyers and sellers alike, auctions are an exciting event. Popular with a diverse array of individuals, J.J. Kane hosts both government and absolute auctions. Knowing the differences between each auction can help you make sure you are getting the maximum value out of your purchase.

Government Auctions

Government agencies routinely sell or exchange their surplus items in public auctions where anyone can buy them. Most of the time, government auctions are held online and include used cars, trucks, police cruisers, ambulances, recycling equipment and more. A key advantage of purchasing from a government auction is that these vehicles have typically been fleet maintained.

Absolute Auctions

Absolute auctions are similar but feature different products and purchasing guidelines. The most important thing to know about these auctions is that there is no minimum purchase price. When the sale occurs, the item will automatically go to the highest bidder.

Getting the Most out of your Purchase

Auctions can be complex. However, once you understand the type of auction system you are taking part in, you can receive many advantages. For example, with an absolute auction, bidders have the chance to get an item for a much lower price than they could have originally.

What Is An Absolute Auction?

In today’s marketplace, there are many different types of auctions, and each one has different methods and procedures. Before a buyer or seller engages in any auction, it is important that he or she knows which type of auction they are dealing with.

At J.J. Kane, we operate using an absolute auction system. Our auctions are open to the public and take place in both online and on-site locations.

Absolute Auction Characteristics

  • Bidding starts at $0.
  • There is no minimum bid.
  • The item for sale is awarded to the individual with the highest bid.

Absolute auctions are very popular because they are simple yet provide benefits to both buyers and sellers. Due to the lack of a starting price and a minimum bid, these auctions are appealing for buyers looking to get a good deal on the equipment offered.

On the other had, sellers enjoy the process of absolute auctions because it allows them to sell their used equipment quickly and easily. It is a win-win scenario to everyone involved, and J.J. Kane hopes to provide an enjoyable absolute auction experience to all of its customers.
