Donnie Dean and the Deanco Auction ring men worked the crowd for bids on the miscellaneous items.

Deanco Auction held a huge two-day equipment and truck auction on Sept.14 and 15 at the company’s Philadelphia, Miss., auction facility.

According to company owner Donnie Dean, this was a “great auction in a tough economy.” Dean went on to say that consignments from the Mississippi Department of Transportation and the Mississippi and Alabama counties, as well as other contractors all did very well at auction.

“The internet was very active and approximately 20 to 25 percent of the machines sold were going out of the country,” Dean stated and emphasized that, “good used equipment is getting tough to find.”

The next big sale at the Deanco Auction Philadelphia, Miss., facility is scheduled for Nov. 16 and 17. Visit www.deancoauction.com for details.
