Compass Garage Offers Classic Auction On Saturday

Thursday, November 19, 2020

Compass Auctions continues to see dramatic increases in auction participation and sales. According to Compass sales data, it has not only boosted the sheer number of monthly auctions, but also the size of each auction’s offerings and the range of products sold.

 

Evidenced by record numbers of registrants and direct customer feedback, Compass is pleased to see the growing popularity of their heavy equipment, firearms and vehicle auctions.

 

According to Compass’ Director of Automotive Acquisitions, Steven "Doc" Dockery, this month’s Compass Garage “Classic Auction” represents another leap forward in the evolution of the region’s fastest growing auction marketplace.

 

He said, “We’re looking to step things up, that’s for sure.

Along with our monthly equipment, surplus, and firearms auctions, we’re taking our vehicle sales to the next level.”

 

The Compass Garage, Classic Auction will be presented live as well as webcast nationwide on Saturday at noon (ET) — so bidders can go to the Compass Auction warehouse in person or they can stay home and bid from their PC or handheld device. 

 

As “Doc” and his team prep the newest arrivals for sale, he took a minute to point out some of the Garage Classics featured vehicles.

 

He said, “Our intention is not to have a Barrett-Jackson or Mecum-sized inventory, but we’ve got some really cool cars, bikes, and motorsport related art and memorabilia. This is a new direction for vehicle auctions here at Compass. It’s been a lot of fun pulling it together. And, honestly, I think our bidding audience is going to love it!”

County Employees Need A Bonus Too

A few weeks ago we learned that Sheriff Jim Hammond was asking for a second raise. Earlier this year Hamilton County employees were notified that "due to COVID-19" there would be no raises for employees of any kind this year. I guess Mr. Hammond didnt get that memo about no raises. Why is it that some employees will be getting a raise and others are not? That doesn't really ... (click for more)
