RESERVED PRICE RETAIL CONSIGNMENT ON OUR LOT.
If you’re risk adverse to auction liquidations, and don’t like dealing with public buyers off Craigslist and the like, this is the program for you! Selling at RETAIL should nearly always net you more money in your pocket than any auction liquidation, with far less hassles than DIY.
If time isn’t the biggest issue but maximizing realized cash (or protecting a reserve price) is the priority, you can utilize our Reserved Price Retail Consignment program and let us do all the work getting your item sold! NO Commissions or hidden Fees to you here with this program. Just give us your bottom dollar RESERVE PRICE you want for your item, and we’ll mark it up from there with no direct fees or costs to you, just as we would new equipment from the factory!
It may take a week or two to sell, or it could take much longer depending on your reserve price, but your reserve price is guaranteed to you upon ultimate sale, which we’d generally expect to be 20-50% or more of normal unreserved auction liquidation values. Our markup is only earned IF and WHEN we sell your item above your agreed upon reserve price!
In many cases, we can finance your buyer and complete trades. We handle all Bills of Sale, Title transfers, taxes & insurance! We deal with all those dead-end inquiries, scammers and tire kickers…because we know your time is valuable!
We have the most extensive marketing anywhere & many active buyers every single day...all FREE for you! Professional photography, videography, & make-ready services all free! We have an estimated 250,000 cars per day pass right in front of our 33-acre location on Southwest Freeway 59 just SW of Houston, giving you unparalleled local visibility & exposure! All you have to do is bring your item(s) in with title (if applicable) in hand, and a reserve price in mind! If your equipment has a lien, we can still do a consignment, but will need current payoff and lender contact info to pay it off upon final sale.
Utilizing the global presence of Sandhills Publishing through their affiliates TruckPaper.com, MachineryTrader.com, TractorHouse.com, OilfieldTrader.com, RVuniverse.com, and MotorsportsUniverse.com (among others), we get you unparalleled exposure online and in PRINT catalogs distributed weekly across America by the millions! You’ve surely seen these for free in your local Truck Stop or C-Store!
We also utilize a dozen other national online markets, getting you maximum exposure and a quick retail sale without a single hassle on your part. We actively list items on Craigslist, Ebay, EquipmentTrader, TrailerTrader, CommericalTruckTrader, as well as Facebook Marketplace & Groups to get YOUR equipment in front of most every buyer out there. We also spend hundreds of dollars each and every day on Google online advertising, bringing thousands of buyers to OUR website featuring YOUR items. We currently have over 100,000 social media followers and post all our consignments to those accounts virtually every day to bring even more buyers to your equipment!
Not only are we located directly adjacent to the 4th largest city in America, HOUSTON, TEXAS, on Highway 59 (nicknamed the NAFTA Superhighway), but we routinely “retail” equipment in states as far off as Georgia, Florida, Michigan and California, not to mention many sales made to Mexico and further south thanks to our online marketing & social media reach. We’ve even made several sales abroad to places including Egypt, Turkey and Algeria.
