Equipment auctions

Does anyone know of any auctions in the New England area? I heard there is one this weekend at Atlantic City in NJ but I can't find any info about it. Thanks for the replies Joel

Joe;, do an online search for auctions then narrow it down to your area. You can also look in the yellow page directory for auction companies.
I buy a large percentage of my equipment from auction companies. I go to 4 or 5 at least every month. In fact today I went to preview equipment at two upcoming sales. Several years ago I made as much buying and selling things as I did "working" for a living.

gslam88- thanks for the lyons site. I was down in Ct this past weekend for the petrowsky auctions. All I have good to say about that auction is that my wife and I were able to go to the mohegan sun casino. The equipment at the auction was going for such an unreasonable price it was sickening. Used trailers were selling for almost or over what you can buy them for new
Thanks again Joel

That's been my experience as well, you got all these folks watching TV shows thinking they're getting a deal, then they fight over it and next thing you know the price of something used that you don't even know if it runs right has done went to levels of unscrupulous behavior.

It's just ridiculous, sometimes you can find a good deal...
But it has been my experience, if it's so easy that anyone can do it, everybody does.
So much so that generally speaking I have to look long and hard, like every day and for a bit of a while, oh and one more thing..
You need the cash, upfront.

So, the order of operations goes:
1. Save your money, all of it.
2. Start looking, and keep saving.

Then when you find it you still have to go look at it.
Don't drive over 100 miles one way either, 50 miles or closer is best.
