Gary, IN - Sept. 10, 2013 — JJ Kane announced a large public auction to be held in Gary, Ind., Saturday, Sept. 21, 2013, when more than 500 pieces of heavy construction equipment and vehicles will be sold. Auction items include over 62 different kinds of used bucket trucks for sale, in addition to hydraulic knuckle boom cranes and grapple boom cranes, digger derricks, forestry/tree care equipment, service trucks, used cars, vans, pickups, and much more.

Auction items are being sold from area companies and utility services, such as Asplundh Tree Expert Co., ComEd, Northern Indiana Public Service Company and other consignors.

The auction is live with bidding starting at 8:30 a.m. Saturday, Sept 21st, and buyers do not have to be present to participate as anyone can register to bid online.

Bidders can inspect auction equipment on Friday, Sep. 20th, 8a.m.-4 p.m. and also at 7:30a.m. on auction day, Sept 21st. The auction is live, on-site in Gary, Ind. (20 miles from Chicago), and items are added to the auction daily. Companies looking for used bucket trucks for sale, heavy construction and forestry equipment are encouraged to sign up for the email updates to stay informed of newly added equipment.

JJ Kane auctions are absolute, meaning that everything sells to the highest bidder, regardless of price. There are no minimums or reserves at an absolute auction, and owners are not allowed to bid on equipment they have consigned to the auction. Selling price is determined by the bidders participating in the auction, and no one else.

The auction offers direct access to the equipment contractors need, and differs from other auctions in that you don’t have to be a dealer to buy. J.J. Kane is well-known for used bucket truck and utility equipment auctions. However, their auctions also feature many used light-duty trucks, 1-ton trucks, cars, vans, SUV's, trailers and more. One of the benefits of this auction is that you do not have to be present to participate. Bidding can be done online, saving the cost of travel, and the company will help bidders and sellers through every step of the process.

"At JJ Kane, we care about our buyers and sellers as we provide the services that are important to both in a way that is most convenient for them. Sellers benefit from a convenient and cost-effective way to sell equipment for competitive market value. Buyers can kick the tires and inspect items personally, or if they prefer, they can make purchases online without the time and expense incurred with traveling to an auction,” says Joe Kane, founder of J.J. Kane Auctioneers.
