Business Liquidation Auctions are a specialty of Jones Swenson Auctions. We have conducted over 1,000 business liquidation auctions in Texas for all types of businesses. We understand the importance of time and money as they apply to vacating a rented space and leaving a facility as clean as possible when the auction is over. Leaving no stone unturned in the search for every possible buyer, the Jones Swenson representatives gain an insight into the assets for each auction and their specific market. It is this hands-on approach that enables this team to continually be a leader in the auction industry.

Our marketing strategy for business and specialty auctions is to thoroughly research the market, determine the key buyers, and execute a targeted advertising plan to attract the best buyers to your auction. Many times the buyers are already in our database!

Since 1983, Jones Swenson Auctions has been conducting business liquidation auctions with great success. From start to finish, turn-key services are provided to our clients. There are many parts to a successful auction. The team at Jones Swenson can handle all aspects of the event. From changing locks, overseeing transport of assets to the auction site, performing make-ready, hiring security if needed, arranging for rigging companies or movers to be present to offer services to buyers, to hiring ex-employees to operate machinery, the team at Jones Swenson knows what needs to be done and how to do it efficiently.

Business Liquidation Auction Marketing

The Jones Swenson marketing strategy for business and specialty auctions is to thoroughly research the market, determine demographics of key buyers, and execute a targeted advertising plan to attract the best buyers to your auction. Many times the buyers are already in our database!

How the auction is presented to the public is one of the key ingredients to marketing an auction correctly. This begins with the posted reason for the auction. Has the business closed? What is the condition of the assets being sold? Is the equipment surplus to the ongoing operations? Whatever the situation, the marketing team at Jones Swenson Auctions will put together a marketing plan to maximize your auction prices.

A complete marketing budget will be presented with the auction proposal showing where the marketing investment will be spent on a line-item basis. The largest part of the marketing budget will be allocated to online resources including a custom auction info page on the company website, emails, ads on industry websites, social media and more.

Other areas of a marketing campaign include direct mail, phone calls and signage. To keep the seller informed, a weekly Marketing Update will be emailed to the seller.

FAQs for Business Liquidation Auctions

If I have a lien against my equipment, can I still have an auction?

Yes, but it will be necessary to inform the lender that the auction is taking place and they will be receiving the payoff payment directly from the auction company. The lender will in turn need to agree to release the liens against the equipment.

Part of the equipment used by my business is owned personally. Can we include those pieces in the liquidation auction?

Yes, a separate seller’s account can be set up and a separate check for net proceeds can be payable to the seller. It should be noted that if there is a blanket lien covering all equipment used in the business, the lender may consider the personal equipment as collateral as well.

I have a friend with a similar business who would like to sell some of his equipment in our auction. Is that possible?

Yes, it is common to have more than one seller in an equipment auction. Each seller or consignor would have their own account and each piece of equipment would have a respective consignor ID assigned to it so all accounting and net proceed checks are correct.

I have friends who would like to buy some of my equipment before the auction. Is that OK?

Usually it is not advisable to sell items before the auction. Selling items before the auction prevents the auction from being called a “Complete Liquidation”, which is a valuable selling point and an ingredient for success. It is usually better to sell everything through the auction so it is fair for everyone and the seller is guaranteed market value.
