  1. Do I have to have any special dealer’s license or special permit in order to bid?
    No, our auctions are open to the public. Therefore no dealer’s license or special permits are required. However you must register prior to placing any bids. To register, you will need a photo identification card and you must sign a contract acknowledging that you accept the terms of the auction.
  2. How will I know in advance what items are going up for auction?
    There is a listing of the auctions that can be obtained by clicking on the "Upcoming Auctions" navigation link, located on our home page. This very unique feature directs you into our computer database, allowing you to access information about all scheduled auctions that we have coming up. This not only allows you to access a listing of the items, but in many cases you can actually see a picture of the item. Remember however, this list is updated almost daily as items arrive for the auction. The closer the date is to the auction, the more listings will appear.
  3. Do you only conduct auctions at your facility, or can you hold an auction at my business?
    We are completely mobile, therefore we can definitely hold an auction just about anywhere. We are licensed in Louisiana and Texas. Additional licenses can be obtained in other states as needed. Although we have over 20,600 square feet of building space and over 42 acres of land to hold auctions at our facility, we have a new modern auction clerking and cashiering trailer as well as a mobile auctioneer’s trailer that allows us easily hold auctions anywhere. Just give us a call at (318) 929-7003, and we will get the ball started.
  4. Do you offer a warranty or guarantee with the items sold through the auctions?
    NO, we do not sell any item with any type of warranty or guarantee. All items are sold “as is” where is. For more information, please read our bidder terms.
  5. Can I pay with a personal or business check?
    No, we do not accept personal or business checks, unless the check is accompanied with a bank letter of guarantee. We do accept Visa, Master Card and Discover. There is an additional 3% surcharge added to the purchase price if you are using a credit card.
  6. What if I need financing on a particular vehicle or equipment sold through the auction?
    Although we do not offer financing, many of our customers have obtained financing through their bank. Arrangements for financing however must be made in advance with your bank. Once you have approval from your bank, we suggest that they grant you the authority to write a check which they will guarantee on your behalf (a bank letter of guarantee must be presented however if you plan on writing a check. Otherwise your bank must contact us and work out the details prior to the auction. If you prefer to use our bank, we suggest that you contact a representative with Community Bank Of Louisiana, as they are very helpful in providing financing options to both individuals and businesses.
  7. Can I get a permanent bidder number?
    Yes. If you are a regular customer, we do offer permanent bidder cards to our customers. You must first complete a permanent bidder agreement. Once we receive the completed agreement, we can process your request and mail your permanent card and bidder number to you.
