50 Years of Business & Auctioneering Success

The Hess Auctioneers, LLC. Story

Over many years we have all enjoyed going to different auctions observing what works and what doesn’t. If you get the correct equipment to your sale and market it properly, all parties involved will have a better chance of leaving “satisfied with the results”. We spent a lot of time discussing our ideas and one day we decided, “Hey, with our combined expertise in different areas and our network of friends and industry contacts we can run an efficient auction company.”

On June 1st, 2007 Hess Auctioneers, LLC. was born. Our first auction was held on November 14, 2007. We quickly recognized that there was a need for this type of consignment auction in the Mid-Atlantic region. Located in Marietta, Pennsylvania, we offer the perfect location conveniently located close to Harrisburg, Lancaster and York. Our secure five-acre concrete pad allows consignors to bring their equipment to our site well in advance of a scheduled sale. Buyers are able to preview upcoming auction inventory as well.

Over the course of our first year, we conducted several auctions, including a Spring Auction which featured a lot full of trucks, trailers & equipment along with a tent and large area filled with parts, tools, supplies, and more.

In September 2008, we welcomed our new General Manager, Bill Troop (15 years in Trailer Sales, Advertising and Equipment Finance) and we are proud that Bill is now our fourth partner. Since then, we have expanded to at least five-six consignment auctions per year, including a “Trucks and Toys” event in September, which includes a large variety of ATVs, RVs, golf carts, and more. We have held several On-Site Fleet Dispersals/Liquidations, where we organize, advertise, and sell all units absolute. We have added an office at our auction site, with a notary on staff, and Online Bidding at www.EquipmentFacts.com. We have also built up our Material Handling sales, partnering with local MH equipment dealers.

We are all excited to see where God is leading us in this new journey together. We are very pleased with the success of our past auctions. Whether it be a consignment auction or a fleet liquidation, our concentration remains on collecting quality trucks, trailers, and equipment, and marketing them to a specific audience, working for the best results for both seller and buyer

Thanks for your valued support. We look forward to meeting you at our next auction.

John, Jim, Phil, & Bill
