7. When do I have to have my equipment on the yard?

The sooner the better, your equipment receives more exposure in the market the earlier you get it on our yard. Early consignments and on-time equipment deliveries will enable us to most effectively serve you. Equipment must be on the yard no later than one week prior to sale day.

8. What will my equipment bring?

Selling price depends on many factors. Our trained sales team will help you determine a fair market price for your equipment.

9. What about Sales Tax?

Tennessee State Sales Tax is charged on ALL motor vehicles. We disclose the ownership of consigned equipment from end-users on sale day. This disclosure allows for specific items to be exempt from Sales Tax day of sale. Please check our Terms & Conditions for more details.
