Auctions

Our clients value our ability to provide an honest and accurate recovery estimate, drawn from our constant exposure to current market conditions. ATEC has built a reliable reputation maximizing the net recovery for our clients, regardless of the asset value, size, or location. Although we utilize many methods of liquidation, Auctions can provide our clients with the highest recovery amount in a shorter period of time.

ATEC organizes and handles all sizes of auctions, from minimal pieces of inventory or
machinery & equipment, to large facilities that require a multi-day auction. We have a history of conducting hundreds of successful, highly attended, and profitable auctions. The key to our success is the ability to organize and structure our auctions, getting the most out of our targeted advertising campaigns. ATEC’s experience in attracting the widest range of potential customers is the result of utilizing a wide-range of industry focused target marketing through digital advertisements, social media, SEO strategies, and direct calls to competitors and potential end users. Our clients also benefit from an extensive database of auction customers and end users, which ATEC has developed while performing appraisals and auctions in virtually every industry.

ATEC provides a myriad of auction services using several auction platforms. Recognizing that there is no “one-size-fits-all” solution, each sale strategy is tailored to the specific needs of the client. By evaluating factors such as asset composition, timeframe, location, market demands, and sale expenses, we formulate an auction solution designed to generate the highest possible proceeds.

Our primary auction services include:

  • Live Auctions – This is the auction in its most traditional sense of the word. Properly advertised and open to the public, the items are brought to the auction block and presented for sale to the highest bidder by one of our licensed auctioneers..

  • Timed Online Auctions – This strategy minimizes the impact of selling from more remote geographic regions and allows us to bring items to the marketplace very quickly. Depending on market factors, the sale period can last from three to thirty days, during which the marketing effort never stops. These sales have a tendency to develop a live auction “feel” with the majority of the bidding action taking place right at closing time. We utilize a dynamic closing process which allows a time extension if bids are placed at the last moment before scheduled closing. This process ensures that every willing bidder has a chance to win the item and every client realizes the highest possible sale price.

  • Live & Webcast Auctions – Live auctions with online bidding achieve the most expansive reach. By bringing the onsite and online bidders together in the same bidding arena we thereby increase the bidding activity. This combination approach requires additional time and resources but the sales suited to this style benefit tremendously from the effort. These sales are ideally suited to high value, widely marketable items where the time and location factors are of a lower priority. Taking the live auction global via the internet is becoming the norm in many industry markets.
