How To Buy


Online Auctions
Our Showcase Events usually take place on the last Wednesday of every month. Wednesdays act like a traditional live unreserved auction where the auction opens for a period of time according to a preset schedule. If you can’t make it on a Wednesday, all the auctions are live for a two-week period leading up to the event - the Preview Period. During the Preview Period you can set your PriorityBid. A PriorityBid acts like the max bid above and allows you to set your bid ahead of time.

On-Site Auctions
Throughout the year, our team of auctioneers run live on-site auctions where you can physically show up, look at the equipment and bid. If the auction is not in your area, you can still participate online using our IronPlanet LiveStream bidding platform. With IronPlanet LiveStream, you can listen or watch the auction via video live and submit your bid to the on-site auctioneer. If you still can’t do that, the PriorityBid feature is available to you so that you will never miss out on the action.
