About I.R.A.Y. Companies

I.R.A.Y. Auction specializes in quarterly Heavy Equipment, Construction, Truck, and Trailer auctions. These auctions, held in March, June, September and December, help our customers manage their equipment needs. Our extensive advertising includes national and regional trade magazines as well as internet advertising. This allows us to target our marketing to those who have an interest in the type of units available, which in turn brings competitive bidding and creates favorable results for our buyers and sellers.

Experience & Location

We have auctioneering experience in a range of areas from real estate to charitable auctions for our community. Our vast experience includes various equipment categories, such as heavy construction, quarry, farm and agricultural, as well as logging. We offer years of experience auctioning semi tractors, trailers, vehicles and utility trucks, along with liquidating company assets.

We are located on 40 acres at the intersection of Minnesota Highways 95 and 25, about 12 miles east of Saint Cloud. Our centrally located facility is equipped with fencing, video cameras, underground sensors, and watchmen quarters to secure our property. Our facility has a drive-over viewing ramp so equipment can be viewed in motion. We evaluate each piece of equipment as it comes in. To help maximize your return, we make recommendations as to necessary repairs or refurbishments. In addition, we are equipped with onsite parking and a large internet auditorium.
