Equipment Auction Set for August 30 as Stein Construction Closes Doors After 105 Years

CHATTANOOGA, Tennessee (August 15, 2017) — Excavators, dozers, backhoes, trucks and other equipment will be selling at auction August 30 as Chattanooga’s Stein Construction prepares to close its doors after 105 years. Compass Auctions and Real Estate will conduct the auction.

“Stein has been an institution for four generations,” said Paige Holt, president of the auction company. “However, its closing presents a real opportunity for other firms to obtain scores of pieces by such manufacturers as Komatsu, Link-Belt, Caterpillar, Freightliner, Peterbilt, International and others.”

The announcement of the Stein auction comes on the heels of the successful completion of Compass’s recent auction of a state-owned Downtown Nashville property for $8.9 million.

“It took a great deal of equipment to run a big construction company like Stein, so this will be a major event. The inventory includes heavy-duty pickups, flatbed trucks, water trucks, dump trucks and all types of earth-moving equipment. There will also be many smaller items, such as lathes, grinders, drills and hand tools from DeWalt and other brands. I wouldn’t be surprised to see bidders from all over the region,” said Holt.

The live auction will begin at 10 a.m. Wednesday, August 30, at 3611 Amnicola Highway, Chattanooga.

Company President Doug Stein said he and his partners will focus on real estate projects, such as the Black Creek development, which has become the largest residential development in Hamilton County. “The opportunity at Black Creek was ultimately more compelling to me than continuing to operate Stein Construction Company in what has become a very different market,” said Stein.

Compass Auctions & Real Estate | City of Chattanooga Tram Auction | SoldonCompass.com

WRCBtv.com | Chattanooga News, Weather

 

The Compass Auctions & Real Estate exclusive SIPP© Program was used to assist the City of Chattanooga in the process of offering the Incline/Tram for sale @ auction.

The tram is functional but has been closed due to certification requirements and needs to be replaced with another option that will better suit the needs for the City of Chattanooga and their exceptional waterfront and tourism efforts.

Since installation the tram has required continued operational efforts and certification requirements that exceed its current usage. So with that considered and the City of Chattanooga’s conscious efforts to return renewable funds to the City budget the item was listed for sale with Compass Auctions and listed for auction.

While a minimum amount offer has been placed on the auction sales the tram is currently under review for the bid offer of $9,000.00. With the purchase of the tram the buyer will be required to submit a safe removal plan as well as rigging fees and transportation costs to their site. The bid is currently pending approval and the results are expected within a approx. a week. If the offer is not accepted the item will be relisted for sale and will be offered once again for purchase. If you would like further information about this item or other upcoming auctions please contact info@soldoncompass.com we provide a positive and professional  sale environment for our clients and buyers. Going above expectations Team Compass “Makes It Happen”!

Compass hosts monthly online webcast auctions which runs in conjunction with our exclusive SIPP© Sell In Place Program that offers clients the ability to list their items for sale @ auction or private treaty without the hassle and expense of moving them to a sale yard, paying rigging and transportation costs which for some items is cost prohibitive and creates additional strain on staff and surplus asset managers.

Compass handles the projects start to finish. Communications, images, marketing, sale transactions of the items, comprehensive reporting, and transportation coordination. If you would like more information about SIPP© or listing items or real estate contact a Compass Auctions Team Member near you.

ALEXZANDRA GEYERAMN BRINGS SIX GENERATIONS OF SALES EXPERIENCE TO TEAM COMPASS

Alexzandra Geyerman knows that greatness doesn’t always come from following a common path. She believes that success tags right along behind choosing happiness every day and knowing when to bend the rules.

Entrepreneurialism runs in her family. Her great-great-great grandfather founded the first Geyerman’s General Mercantile in 1852 and from age 13, Alexz spent her weekends sorting hangers and folding Alfred Dunner slacks at the Mitchell, SD store 150 years later. She remembers the old, tattered lion poster hanging above the staircase leading to the employee break room – “The customer is always king”. That Midwest mindset survived six generations, and remains the groundwork for each venture Geyerman encounters.

Before graduating with an Audio Engineering degree from The Institute of Production and Recording in Minneapolis, Alexz taste-tested a future in ultrasound technology, radio, marketing and design. Her love of music and adventure inspired a spontaneous move to Nashville in 2010, and after spending 3 years working in a 911 dispatch center, she landed her first sales job on Music Row.

While her positive attitude and work ethic comes from her mom, Alexz gets her sense of courage from her father who spent years piloting hot-air balloons. Aside from drinking champagne from red Solo cups after each safe flight, her favorite tradition was the blessing recited prior to each launch. Although The Hot-Air Balloonist’s Prayer  preserves a mysterious origin, its sanguine wish is also relevant to the big-picture version of how she imagines a successful journey:

May the winds welcome you with softness,

May the sun bless you with his warm hands,

May you fly so high and so well that God joins you in laughter

and sets you gently back into the loving arms of Mother Earth.

Alexz would love the opportunity to meet with you regarding any real estate or auction related needs you may have in and around the Nashville area.  Reach her directly at (605) 999-7179, or by email at Ageyerman@soldoncompass.com.
