Since its beginning in 1957 with the first auction totaling $800, this family business has grown to be one of the world’s leading auction firms.
Henderson Auctions is one of the oldest equipment auction firms in existence and is recognized as a leader in the industry. We specialize in heavy construction machinery auctions, truck and trailer auctions, mobile home auctions, travel trailer auctions, industrial equipment auctions, and real estate auctions. We are large enough to serve your needs and yet small enough to maintain that personal service that’s so important to the success of your auction!
Henderson Auctions’ permanent facility in Livingston, Louisiana utilizes approximately 50 acres. This includes a large pavilion for customer seating during our drive-through auctions, concession and rest room facilities, customer registration and lounge area, large equipment make-ready including a mechanics’ shop, welding and metal working, cleaning, sandblasting, and painting areas.
Our auctioneers and ringmen work aggressively to maintain an active and exciting atmosphere during the auction process. They are knowledgeable in values of the sale items and very persuasive in soliciting bids while maintaining a friendly, comfortable relationship with buyers. At the Henderson Auction facility, we conduct sales of construction equipment, fabrication equipment, utility equipment and much more. Our quarterly construction auctions have grown in recent years, from two to three days and gross from 12 to 20 million dollars each.
