HOW TO BUY
Smith Broughton is Western Australias only specialised industrial auctioneer. We conduct plant & machinery auctions every week selling Mining & Construction Equipment, Trucks, Trailers, Vehicles, Transportable Buildings & Sea Containers. You never know what you will find at Auction.
We have a number of different ways to buy equipment at Smith Broughton, but the most popular way is by auction. Auctions are usually in one of two formats:
A timed auction is conducted completely online and allows you to bid when it is convenient to you. The auction starts at a set time and stays open over a number of days.
All timed auctions allow extended bidding (or bid extension). If a bid is placed on a lot within a specified time before closing, the bidding will automatically be extended for a set period of time.
Timed auctions also allow for maximum bidding. Maximum bidding allows you to set your maximum bid and our auction system automatically bids the next increment on your behalf, until your maximum bid is reached.
A webcast auction is conducted live, in real – time and is hosted on-site by an auctioneer. The auction is broadcast online and because it is live, people can bid on site or online.
