Bendis Companies, Inc., is well-versed in the sales and evaluation of machinery and equipment, personal property and basic industry throughout the United States, Canada and Alaska. As a company with prime concentration in auctions and appraising, our facility includes a full time certified auctioneer and appraiser, management staff, and computer input personnel. Our services include general appraisal, pre-lease residual forecast, post-lease inspections and evaluations, desktop valuations and market studies.
Watch an expert auctioneer at work, and you'll be pulled right into the action along with the bidders. An excited audience shouting bids spiraling ever higher is an auctioneer's job... and their client's dream. Before the frenzied sale can occur, however, a lot of hard work and planning is necessary. Without it, the auction falls flat — low turnout, tepid bidders, and worst of all, a poor return for the customer. Liquidating assets at the highest value possible is what auctions are for. Hiring an experienced, trustworthy auction company is the only way to ensure such results.
Publicizing your auction is just as important as sounding the gavel. The Bendis Web Site lists all approaching sales, so your bidder base includes everyone on-line; our 24-7 Website puts your lot information just a click away. Our design staff will produce and position print advertising to suit your budget. Newspaper and brochure exposure are coordinated with Hot Line information to intrigue wisely-targeted and well-informed bidders.
On auction day, you'll see Bendis's peerless skills in full swing. We study each lot item with an eye toward set-up and display, so previews inspire bidders to go the distance for what they want. Our self-sufficient portable office is set up at your auction site, complete with generators, cell phones, and support equipment. Our computer tracking system generates on-location running reports for your sales figures — your finger is right on the auction's pulse. Quick return on your money — usually within 7 to 10 days — is a final important detail.
The Bendis client list includes government agencies such as the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, the Internal Revenue Service, Department of Transportation, Department of Airports, Multiple Banks, Attorneys, School Districts, Homeland Security and the U.S. Small Business Administration. We also serve private businesses, individuals, and estates. This broad, intensive experience makes us experts at executing the paperwork required by government agencies prior to and following an auction. Our company is accredited by the Certified Auctioneers Institute, the International Society of Appraisers, and other professional associations. Bendis is fully bonded and insured.
