Contractor Surplus Auction

At Compass Auctions, everything you see on our auction stage has been consigned to us by a third party. Anyone can consign with us — individuals, municipalities, government entities, businesses — everyone is welcome!

You can consign almost anything to Compass: firearms, vehicles, industrial equipment, luxury goods, real estate, and more! Keep reading to learn more about how our auctions benefit you.

Sell Your Surplus!

Even though surplus is often thought of as leftover goods and equipment, it’s a big part of our industrialized economy. The total value of industrial surplus generated per year is worth tens of billions of dollars at minimum. What’s to be done with all that surplus that accumulates over the course of a fiscal year? That’s easy: sell it!

Some auctions at Compass have an industrial focus, like our Day 1 and Mid-Month events. Consigned industrial surplus is a big part of these auctions and helps bring more variety to our auction lots. We conduct a number of auctions exclusively for surplus every month!

If your business has surplus, there’s someone out there who wants to buy it. You want it? We’ve got it. Don’t want it? We’ll sell it.

Consigning with Compass

When you choose to sell something yourself, you risk frustration and wasted time on uninterested buyers. Selling an item requires time, money, and effort spent on marketing, and even haggling on your part. Depending on what you’re selling, it could even take months to finalize a sale yourself.

By consigning with Compass, you can trust our professional auction staff to manage these responsibilities. We handle the sale of consigned goods, leaving you with more time to grow your business.

Consignment can be an excellent solution for businesses with surplus. If your business is approaching the end of the fiscal year, consigning with Compass can be a great way to liquidate surplus that needs to go, and add to your business’ bottom line.

Check out our Auction Calendar to get a better idea of the kinds of goods that Compass receives from consignors. Also, be sure to tune in to our Contractor Surplus Auction that starts to close on September 9 at 10 am ET for the chance to bid on surplus, contractor-grade items, and more
