Merchandise auctioned off includes office equipment, medical equipment, office furniture, boating equipment, vehicles, and much more. Auctions are typically held at 1059 Brickyard Lane in Baton Rouge.
Viewing of auction merchandise is available 3 working days prior to the auction from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm the week of the auction. Pre-registering on these days will allow you to avoid lines and save time. Remember that registration must be done for each auction.
