How we work.

  • Regularly scheduled auctions, no waiting for a sale.
  • No reserve auctions. Bidders compete with each other, increasing the value you receive.
  • No relocation costs.
  • No hidden fees.
  • We do all the heavy lifting, we handle the details, from titles, asset transactions and collection.

What our clients are saying about us.

Purple Wave puts a lot of eyes on our equipment, and the bidders are from a lot farther away than if we did a local auction. That means more bidders competing throughout the auction, and competition drives the values up. We’ve always been pleased with the results. Most importantly, when we work with Purple Wave, the money is real. We’re not in the financing business, and I don’t have time to chase someone down. Purple Wave collects the money, and I receive a bill of sale and zero-balance invoice via e-mail before I release anything.

Purple Wave is a top-notch auction company that really knows how to market and use technology. Once our assets were posted on the auction website, our phone began to ring and potential buyers were on our lot daily until the close of the sale. We estimated what we thought our assets might sell for and Purple Wave didn’t fail us. The invoicing and payments were painless.

We have used other places in the past, requiring us to travel several hundred miles to get trucks sold. It is very convenient for us to use Purple Wave and sell the truck as is, where is. Conventional auctions don’t always attract the right bidders or get them where they need to be. I had one guy tell me that he was bidding on my trucks while driving a combine down the road. I wouldn’t sell anything with Purple Wave if I didn’t get as much money in the end. We will keep using Purple Wave for many years to come!
