Types of Auctions:

Online Only Auction

We have always tried to offer our clients the latest and greatest technology. That's why we were one of the first to offer online only auctions. We quickly recognized the value of an online bidding platform that allowed interested parties to bid 24 hours a day from anywhere in the world. Online auctions allow us to market your assets to the greatest number of people in the most efficient and cost effective manner, leading to the greatest return to our sellers.

To business owners time is money. People are busy. They don't have time to invest several days to travel to your location just to bid on a few items. Today’s buyers are tech savvy and they want it on their terms and at their fingertips. With an online auction, bidders can view and bid on your items 24 hours a day from the comfort of their home or office. With our auctions we regularly attract bidders from around the world. We have shipped antiques cars to Germany, Heavy equipment to South America and antiques to distant locations around the globe. With an online auction conducted by Hurley auctions we just don't sell your assets to your competition down the street we sell them to the world!!!!!

The advantages of online auctions are numerous

  1. More bidders:  We don't just sell to your neighbors we attract tens of thousands of bidders from around the world.
  2. Time: Your items are exposed to potential buyers for weeks to bid rather than one day when only those that can be at your auction can bid.
  3. Inclement Weather:  Rain, Wind, Cold. Heat, Snow, Sleet or Hail won't affect your auction.  As we like to say "It’s always beautiful online" No more renting expensive tents or worrying that people won't come because of the weather.
  4. $$$$ With more bidders comes greater competition leading to higher prices for your items.
  5. Less liability:  With an online auction you limit the risk of someone being hurt on your property or someone stealing or damaging your valuables.
  6. Less expenses: You no longer need to pay to box and pack and move your items, rent tents, toilets, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc....... 
  7. Marketing:  Marketing cost are cut considerably because you now can reach a worldwide audience with the click of a button.
  8. You don't need hundreds of items to have an auction.  We conduct single item auctions on items such as heavy equipment, boats, planes, helicopters, trucks, etc........

Live Onsite Auction

Although 95% of our auctions are now conducted online there are times when a seller will request a live auction at their location. We have conducted thousands of live auctions and are equipped to handle all aspects of your live auction event. A live outcry auction is hosted by an auctioneer in front of an audience of bidders. It is important that our live auctions are made into an event. Our staff is well trained and capable of creating excitement that often times leads to enthusiastic bidding and outstanding results.

Simulcast Auction

Onsite Auction with Internet Bidding

A simulcast auction is a live in-person auction event in front of the auctioneer that is broadcasted allowing bidders to bid live as well as online. This offers the advantage of internet bidding on select items with the excitement of a live auction for those who could not be present because of other engagements, distance or other reasons. These auctions offer sellers the best of both worlds offering maximum exposure of their assets with the traditional live outcry auction.
