Each auction has different specifics about item removal. The lot catalog will contain that particular auction’s instructions for item removal.
No equipment may be removed while an auction is in progress. Buyers can pay for their purchases at any time during the sale.
Frequently Asked Questions
A 15%-18% Buyer’s Premium will be added to the final bid price. All bids are in US dollars. An additional fee (often 3%) will be added to online bids. Your bid is a contract: Place a bid only if you’re serious about buying the item. If you are the high bidder, you will enter into a legally binding contract with PPL Auction.

Removals & Rigging
RIGGING AND REMOVAL is the responsibility of the BUYER. Small, carryout items, should be removed immediately after the auction or the day after the auction.
Anyone, either a buyer or rigger, who uses a powered vehicle to remove anything from the auction site will need a certificate of insurance. All removal activity must be in accordance with OSHA guidelines and safety standards. Removal may begin when the auction has been completed and FULL PAYMENT has been made.
