How to Buy
All of the TAC Enterprises’ tractor and equipment auctions are open to the public. Pre-purchases may be available for some tractors and equipment up to one week prior to the scheduled auction.
We take great lengths to ensure the quality of the tractors and equipment sold in our auctions. All items may be inspected prior to the auction and any additional information on an item will be made available upon request. Most of our tractors and equipment up for auction are listed in our online directory prior to the auction day.
Registering to Bid
If you are interested in participating in the bidding during our auction you will need to register with us prior to the auction. You will be required to provide a picture ID, such as a driver's license, and a valid physical address and phone number. If you are an out of state buyer you must provide a letter of guarantee from your bank addressed to TAC Enterprises with the auction date. We accept cash, business and personal checks, credit and debit cards. Credit and debit cards are subject to a 3% administrative fee.
We continue to have row 4 designated for unreserved items. All other items may or may not have a reserve.
How to Bid
During the auction our auctioneer will announce the lot number and offer an asking price, lowering it if needed to start the bidding. Once the bidding has begun, bids are offered by raising your hand or bidder card. Bidding continues until no more bids are offered and the auctioneer will announce that the item has been sold. If there is a reserve on an item and it is not met, the auctioneer will notify all bidders upon taking the final bid.
