Personal Property Auctions and Distraint Process

All bidders must be registered. There is no registration fee. You may only register the morning of the auction. No changes to the registration can be made after the sale. When registering, we will provide a copy of the personal property auction terms of sale. We require that you read and sign this before being issued a bidder number card. You cannot bid without a card.

We will accept cash, checks, money orders, VISA, MasterCard and Discover card.

Those wishing to bid must be present or have a representative present at the auction.

These are oral auctions. To bid, you must hold up your issued bidder card and call out the bid amount. Each item is sold to the highest bidder.
