Consigning with Taylor & Martin

Our experienced and dedicated staff are experts at handling all the details. From coordinating equipment inspections to handling paperwork and titles, you can depend on Taylor & Martin to have everything under control. Contact a Taylor & Martin sales representative to discuss the many options available for selling your equipment. We may:

  • add your equipment to a Taylor & Martin sale already scheduled
  • plan an auction exclusively for your equipment
  • coordinate a private re-marketing campaign
  • establish a long-term ongoing sales partnership
  • discuss purchase options, i.e. Taylor & Martin purchasing your equipment immediately for cash

If an auction is determined to be your best option, the sales representative will need a complete equipment description including VIN, mileage, maintenance, photos, etc. From this information and after an inspection, the sales representative will estimate an auction value for the equipment.

  • Approximately 15-20 days prior to the auction, you will receive the consigning equipment letter with the preparation guidelines. Taylor & Martin can arrange to have your equipment prepared for auction. Recommendations will be made in regard to clean-up, degreasing, etc. and expenses will be documented and deducted from the gross sale proceeds.
  • Customer must provide original titles at least 10 days prior to the auction date along with the signed Auction Agreement and creditor information, if applicable. If there are liens on any of the titles, Taylor & Martin will contact the financial institutions for payoff requirements to obtain negotiable titles.
  • Equipment should arrive at the auction site 7 days prior to the auction date. If needed, Taylor & Martin can arrange for transportation of equipment to the site and will deduct the expense from the gross sale proceeds.
  • Net auction proceeds are remitted on the tenth banking day following the auction. Net auction proceeds are the gross sale price less commission and any expenses. Settlement will be in the form of a Taylor & Martin company check; included will be an accounting statement and copies of any expenses. Payments from the proceeds will be made to financial institutions as necessary to guarantee release of liens.
