Trucks in High Demand at Frey & Sons Akron Auction

Wed September 01, 2021 - Midwest Edition #18

Frey & Sons Auctioneers held a one-owner, absolute auction in Akron, Ohio, on Aug. 18. The auction was conducted for J & J Elite Transportation as the company scales back operations in view of retirement.

Reflecting the industry-wide strong demand for transportation equipment, bidding for the company's lineup of well-maintained dump trucks, semi-trucks and dump trailers was robust. While the auction attracted a significant crowd of onsite bidders, the sale drove heavy online bidding as well.

Based in Archbold, Ohio, Frey & Sons is a family-owned business with three generations of involvement in the company, providing real estate brokerage services, equipment appraisal services and site based and online equipment auctions throughout the year.
