CANYON, Texas, June 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Thursday's auction of tractors,
excavators, loaders, forklifts and other equipment attracted hundreds of
bidders in Assiter Auctioneers' latest Canyon Heavy Equipment auction.

"These auctions have taken on a life of their own, becoming the preferred way
of buying and selling used equipment for many individuals, dealers, farmers
and other businesses in the area," said Spanky Assiter, chief executive
officer of the company. "We had amazing participation by sellers and buyers
alike, with 386 lots offered by 94 consignors, including the City of Amarillo,
Xcel Energy, the U.S. Bankruptcy Court and others."

The auction attracted a total of 583 bidders, including those bidding live and
online. "I think it helps when you have a good, varied inventory like we did.
We sold boats, RVs, backhoes, forklifts, mini excavators, cars, trucks,
generators and bucket trucks, among other things – ultimately getting more
than $1 million for our consignors," Assiter said.

With the equipment sale behind them, the Assiter Auctioneers team turns its
attention to upcoming auctions, including 937 acres of ranch land in Canadian
and a historic home in White Deer, both being sold on Tuesday, June 17. The
next day, June 18, Assiter Auctioneers will auction a waterfront home on Lake

"Things seem to be heating up a bit for real estate, and of course we're
always glad to talk to those who are considering an auction for their homes or
land," said Assiter.

upcoming auctions may visit or call 806-655-3900.
