Auction Notes

Wreckers & More!

After nearly 40 years in the wrecker-selling business, Stan Coker of Coker Equipment Sales says: “I’m done!” Most of these wreckers were sold new by Stan and traded back in when his customers wanted another. These all originated in Texas and were operated throughout the South. This is a great opportunity to buy a wide variety of wreckers that only comes around during an auction like this once every several years! This auction will liquidate his wrecker and truck inventory and about 100-150 support items. Mr. Coker is planning another auction in early 2021 to liquidate his shop and accessories along with remaining support items.
