    Purple Wave Auctions offers a simplified Internet auction process that benefits buyers and sellers alike. We specialize in working with sellers who have un-shippable assets and who seek a local, turnkey service from listing to marketing to transaction settlement. We provide those assets to a broad collection of bidders from around the world - achieving maximum exposure and maximum returns.

    More Than a Decade of Internet Auctioneering Experience

    Purple Wave was established as an on-site auction in Manhattan, KS by Aaron and Suzy McKee in 2000, and the first online Purple Wave auction was held two years later. In the ensuing decade, Purple Wave Auctions has experienced exponential growth. The company made the switch to Internet-only auctions in 2009, and in 2010, earned the distinction of being listed as one of the 500 fastest-growing companies by Inc. magazine. The purplewave.com site now features more than 100,000 registered buyers and 250,000 monthly visitors.

    Simple Four-Step Purchasing Process

    Upon free registration as a Purple Wave Auctions bidder, buyers get the benefit of a simplified purchasing process that enables them to get the equipment they need quickly and without hassles. Buyers can easily conduct an equipment search by keyword and specific pricing requirements. After locating a suitable item, buyers can then place their bid and use the exclusive maximum bid feature to keep abreast of the bidding process without the need for continuous monitoring. Winning bidders then log in to their customer portal to pay for the item and make arrangements to pick up their purchase.

    The Easy Way to List Equipment for Sale

    Sellers can use a Purple Wave auction to make their items available to the extensive buyer network. Sellers only need to complete a short form to provide basic information about themselves, their business and the assets they are looking to sell.

    All auctions are unreserved, giving buyers the opportunity to freely bid against each other. This enables sellers to receive the highest price for their equipment that the market will bear. Marketing services are also available to help sellers reach potential buyers online and in their community.

    A Full-Service Auction Company

    Although Purple Wave Auctions is exclusively an online auction company, this does not mean a lack of customer service. With a staff of 45 auction professionals offering specialized expertise in areas such as construction, government, banking and auction management, Purple Wave Auctions can assist you with every phase of the auction process.
