Don Smock Auction Company conducted a complete liquidation equipment auction June 21, 2019, for Crossroads Excavating and Construction, based in Winchester, Ind.

Crossroads Excavating & Construction disbanded when two of the three partners elected to merge with another locally-owned construction firm and the third partner chose to branch out on his own.

Totaling nearly 800 lots, the auction included well maintained dozers, excavators, skid steers and a variety other machines and support equipment along with a significant lineup of trucks and trailers. Nearly 200 registered to bid onsite while the auction drew heavy online bidding as well. CEG
