INGHAM COUNTY – It’s almost that time! At 10 a.m. March 28, Sheridan Realty and Auction Co. will be hosting the Sheridan equipment and consignment auction at the Ingham County Fairgrounds and Exposition Center. Starting this week, Sheridan Realty will be onsite to consign items as well as scouting potential buyers for these valuables. According to Sheridan Realty, it can assist in finding a general figure for the value of the items if you do not know how much they are worth.
The focus for this year’s auction is on construction and farming equipment. According to Auction Coordinator Doug Sheridan, this covers a wide range of items such as most power tools, motor graders and even excavators. Someone can expect to consign or purchase things like front-end loaders, tractors, combines, trailers, King Corn Bushhog mowers and many more. There will also be a 2,000-gallon Poly Fertilizer Tank stored inside. Sheridan said that if you want to sell, Sheridan Realty can find a spot at the auction.
According to organizer Jason Buher, you can still be involved in the event by sponsoring. This auction provides opportunities to consign and find items as well as meet and socialize with others in the community. Larger companies also have sponsorship opportunities as well.
All items must be purchased the day of the auction. MasterCard, Visa, personal checks and cash will be accepted. There may be hold and reserves on some equipment beforehand and all equipment is sold as is without warranty. All sales are final with no refunds.
