Stock Realty & Auction Co.
Since its founding in 1984, Stock Auction Co. has embraced many changes in its business and services. With change comes opportunity. Founders Ron and Mark Stock have always been ready and willing to embrace change. The business expanded in 1986 with the addition of a real estate sales network. Later, farm machinery and real estate appraisals were added. Stock Realty & Auction Co. was the first Nebraska auction company to offer online bidding at traditional auctions. Today Stock Realty & Auction Co. continues to conduct real estate auctions and personal property auctions as well as provides appraisals and farm management.
“Sold! …to the highest bidder!”
The sights and sounds of auctions are staples of rural America. They’re how business gets done — buyers and seller in the same place, out in the open closing deals with eye contact, a handshake and the rap of an auctionneer’s gavel.
BigIron is the one and only online auction company started by farmers, which replicates that kind of integrity on a digital platform, for our agriculture, construction, transportation and utility customers.
BigIron’s online platform allows you to virtually “kick the tires” before you buy. We provide the seller’s information to our online buyers so they have access to the same kind of information they’d get in person.
How was the equipment maintained? What led you to sell it? That personal connection allows you to feel good just like you’re purchasing from your neighbor.
And as a seller, that connection assures your equipment is well presented to interested buyers, who are free to contact you to ask questions about the equipment’s condition ensuring that your equipment sells at a fair market price.
Honesty, transparency and integrity aren’t just lip service – they’re ingrained in our culture. For our founders, brothers Mark and Ron Stock, they’re just part of what they call “farmer logic.”
The Stock brothers got their start by selling household items at local neighborhood estate auctions. In ‘84, they founded their first onsite auction company. By ‘09, their company included BigIron online auctions — a business that now sells tens of thousands of items through weekly unreserved auctions to registered bidders representing a global marketplace.
Mark and Ron – who are still deeply involved in their family farm operations – always focused on delivering a fair deal to their customers. The quality and experience customers have come to expect from the brothers’ traditional auctions continues through BigIron’s online platform.
We’ve reinvented the way used farm, construction and transportation equipment is sold to best meet the needs of our buyers and sellers with unreserved auctions with no buyer’s premiums.
Join us at BigIron.com every Wednesday for our online auctions, where you’ll find everything from a torch for your shop to grain carts to newer four-wheel drive tractors or combines.
Want to sell some of your used equipment? No problem, we do all the heavy lifting. We come to you and write descriptions, capture photos and videos, and upload your listing to our site, which gives you access to our extensive buyer base. We manage the auction, market your equipment, ensure clear title, collect the payments and we hand you the check. All you have to do is answer the phone, respond to people who come to look at your equipment and be honest. We’ll do the rest, all while bringing you the highest number of qualified bidders who drive prices to meet market values.
In the market for used equipment? We pride ourselves on providing buyers full transparency and disclosure they’ve come to expect with us. In addition to photos and videos of the equipment, we connect you directly with the seller so you can talk with them about the equipment or even see it in person. Then once you place your winning bid and complete payment you can pick up your purchase just as you would from a traditional auction. You can rest assured your purchase is secure.
Always getting better
We are committed to continually improving our service for our customers, such as software upgrades, using more video footage and adding more great people to our team. We’ll continue to deliver the transparency and trust you expect, and avoid the games other auction houses play.
