About Us

An auction for selling used machinery and equipment is a process where pre-owned industrial equipment, tools, and machinery are sold to the highest bidder. Sterling Machinery Auctions, Liquidations and Appraisals is your best platform for selling your used machinery and equipment facilitating the sale of your used equipment to interested buyers.

Sterling Machinery Auctions is your first choice to auction CNC Machine shops, metal working, fabrication facilities, automotive, aerospace, etc.  We have bidders from around the world from corporations to individual businesses.

We provide the detailed information about each piece of machinery, including its specifications, condition, and any other relevant details before the auction begins. In many instances there is a preview day for the auction in person or online. Sterling Machinery Auctions connects bidders from around the world with multiple selling formats such as digital, live, and online auctions.  Sterling Machinery Auctions catalogs all the items, hosts the auction, conducts the bidding, advertises the auction, offers payment solutions, etc.  Selling your used equipment is a cost efficient way to sell your industrial assets.

Once the bidding process is complete and a highest bidder is determined, the successful buyer is obligated to complete the purchase by paying the agreed-upon price. Payment terms and methods are typically specified by the auction house or auctioneer before the auction begins. After the payment is received, the buyer takes possession of the machinery, either by arranging for transportation or picking it up from the auction site.  Sterling Machinery Auctions makes this process easy for you.  Sterling Machinery Auctions brings the highest return for your valued assets.

Buyers can acquire industrial equipment at potentially lower prices compared to buying new. Sellers can liquidate their surplus or outdated machinery and recover some value from their assets.
