I go to auctions all the time.
Contractor of 27 years sold everything and left for the Dakota oil fields.
Plumbing and heating guy went belly up and sold off air compressors, dump trailer, gennies, pipe cutters, etc.
Roofing and siding company sold out and had vehicles, brakes, roofing guns, inventory, etc.
I rarely buy anything new anymore, and I try not to buy anything that I can't resell for similar money down the road. Auctions aren't for everyone, but there can be deals.
