Premise Auctions

Premise auctions are coordinated when a customer has a lot to sell, has large items to sell (such as vehicles or equipment) or is selling real estate. Premise auctions can be for household goods, restaurant, farm or other equipment, vehicles or a combination of all these. Check out our list of upcoming auctions for the details and directions to our upcoming premise auctions.


At the time of consultation, the auctioneer will work with the seller to determine if a premise auction makes sense. In some cases, such as situations where parking or display space/location restrictions may prohibit an on-site auction, the auction team may move items to their Old School Auction. The season of the year may also lead to a move of items to our auction facility.

A good portion of our premise auctions are held on Saturdays, but other days of the week are also good auction days.  In general, the merchandise brings the crowds and Wednesday auctions and night auctions have been known to bring in very large groups.  One reason for this may be that there is less competition from other Saturday events.

Rain or shine, the show goes on with Heatwole Auction Team & Moving. We’re prepared with tents and plastic to ensure the safety of items during a premise auction. And, don’t worry about the rain, auction-goers don't and will still attend your auction.


Heatwole Auction & Moving conducts auctions every Thursday Evening and sells
