How to Buy

All bidders must create a login account in order to participate in Centurion Service Group's auctions. A valid photo ID (driver’s license, state ID or passport) verifying your address will be required during that process to complete your account signup. Once this step is completed, you will not have to create another account again in the future.

Once you register for an auction, Centurion Service Group will get notified and will approve you for bidding or request additional information to complete your registration. You will receive an email notification once you are approved for bidding.

Methods of Bidding

1) Online

Centurion Service Group hosts live and timed auctions every month in their three auction warehouse locations (Chicago, Las Vegas and South Florida). To bid online, you must sign up online to create your account and then register for the auction. Please register as early as possible, as we cannot guarantee approval if you register the day of the auction. 

2) On-Site

To bid the Centurion Service Group auction room, you may either register online first, or register in-person with Terri, our auction manager. Once you have registered and been approved, you will be assigned a buyer/paddle number and ready to begin bidding.

3) Proxy Bid

If you cannot participate on-site or online, there is still a way to participate in our auctions. A bidder can submit a maximum bid amount by submitting this form via fax to 708-343-7100 or email to erin@centurionservice.com. We act as your representative at the auction and buy the lots/items as cheaply as competition permits. Click here to download the proxy bid form.

Will Centurion Coordinate Shipping?

No. Buyers are fully responsible for packaging, loading, removing and shipping the items/lots purchased. Removal times are clearly specified in auction announcements. Equipment purchased via credit card will not be released without a signed credit card authorization form. Also, all buyers who are not picking up their equipment themselves are required to fill out a pick-up authorization form in order for their equipment to be released to the shipper of their choosing.

Please note: Centurion Service Group provides this list of shippers as a service to their buyers. They are not affiliated with any of the companies on the list nor do they receive any compensation from them.
