Government Surplus

Government Asset Liquidations

At L.W. Benton Company, we recognize the constant struggle elected officials and administrators face in balancing operating budgets with revenue streams – particularly in the face of such trying economic times.

One way to alleviate the drain on public funds is through the sale of surplus government property at auction. Outdated or unused equipment and vehicles – such as maintenance and public works equipment, trash trucks, fire engines, school buses and law enforcement vehicles – can all be sold at top dollar at auction, literally turning surplus items into cash and easing the pain of purchasing new and necessary equipment.

The advantage of L.W. Benton Company lies in our expertise in these types of sales and the options we offer. Whether it’s a live event, an internet-only auction, or the combination of the two - conducted on your premises or at our Macon facility - we’ll tailor our methods to ensure the greatest amount of value for your assets while diligently reigning in costs. If its a single vehicle or an entire fleet, we have the means to liquidate your property at top dollar, regardless of the size of your department or the population of your municipality.

When you contract with L.W. Benton Company, you’re hiring a licensed auction company that employs experienced and licensed auction professionals. We’ll handle your auction’s details from start to finish, allowing your employees to get back to doing the jobs they were hired to do.

Because we’re a Georgia-based company working predominantly for Georgia-based clients, we have relationships and contacts with both in-state and regional buyers. But our extensive use of the internet and our company website,
