When it comes to selling heavy equipment, you have several options. It can be difficult to know which selling avenue will give you the most worth for your items. Independently selling can lead to a high opportunity cost, as it may take too much time to find a buyer, or you may be forced to settle at a lower price. Likewise, going through a dealer may lead to unwanted fees. There are many available selling services, and specialized auction experts in heavy equipment are as rare as a hen’s teeth.


Our experienced, full-service team specializes in selling heavy equipment. For the last thirty years, we have auctioned a variety of equipment:

  • Dump trucks
  • Fuel trucks
  • Log trucks
  • Log loaders
  • Bulldozers
  • Cement trucks


In order to create a relaxed, enjoyable sale, we consider the story and history of each item. Our CEO, Rod Fivecoat, has attended and facilitated auctions for three decades, and he is a member of the Idaho Association of Professional Auctioneers. Rod Fivecoat Auctions are fun and easy-going, and we are experts at getting the best price for your heavy equipment.


For the benefit of buyers and sellers, each auction has an online catalog with information about each product. After reviewing the terms and conditions of the auction, buyers can preview the items, marking which ones they want to watch and bid on later. Our all-inclusive online auctions allow people from all over the country to bid online while the auction is open. Also found in the online catalog are detailed directions to where the items will be ready for pickup. If overnight arrangements need to be made, check the catalog for details about cabin or RV hook up availability. There are many benefits to participating in an auction, and Rod Fivecoat Auctions llc mindfully maintains the interests of buyers and sellers.


Benefits to Buying at Auctions

Auctions are a simple, transparent process that allows you to decide exactly how much you want to pay. Auctions give buyers more control. Buyers determine the value of items, and they come to auctions ready to buy items that the seller is committed to selling. The presence of a crowd helps buyers weigh the difference between intrinsic value and market value. The bidding process of auctions eliminates long negotiation and waiting periods. Buyers know they are getting a fair price by conducting pre-auction research and observing neighboring bids. Other benefits include:

  • Auctions are organized with fixed selling dates
  • Buyers know they are fairly competing with other buyers
  • There is a high chance of buying at a bargain
  • All sales are final and nobody will be backing out of a deal
