D & L Auction has been in business for over 18 years. We are locally owned and operated. Our auctioneer has more experience auctioneering than any other auctioneers locally. We specialize in on- site auctions but will also move items off site to sell if you prefer. We have conducted auctions from Fairbanks to Delta Junction and assisted with auctions in the Anchorage and Wasilla area. We have also assisted with auctions in the lower 48.
We have conducted auctions for local governments and state agencies to include, the City of Fairbanks, Fairbanks North Star Borough, University of Alaska, Golden Valley Electric, AT & T Alaska and Ghemm Company and assisted with auctioneering services for the State of Alaska.
We have conducted auctions commercially for many local business owners including Regan Steel, Alaska Flooring, Alaska Development Services, Interior Towing, Badger Towing, Alaska Highway Services, Arctic Thunder, and Lundeens Body Shop. We have conducted Superior court ordered auctions for example, Grizzly Lodge (overseen be Neiwohner and Associates) and Leonard Westover Estate. We have conducted hundreds of auctions for private individuals also who may need estates liquidated or may be leaving the state. We work closely with some of the attorneys in Fairbanks liquidating estates, such as Rita Allee, Hompesch and Evans and Neiwohner and Associates. We have worked with estate guardian services also. We have conducted auctions for prominent individuals in our community such as Robert Fowler, the Schikora's, the Haydon's, the West's and the Regans.
We have done benefit auctions for the National Rifle Association, Far North Christian School, Fairbanks Christian School, Jubilee Christian School, Two Rivers Community Church of the Nazarene, Ducks Unlimited and Alaska Outdoor Council.
We operated a local auction house for over 10 years holding anywhere from 1 to 3 auctions per week selling hundreds of lots at each auction ranging from household items, to firearms, vehicles (cars, trucks etc), surplus law enforcement vehicles, heavy equipment such as dump trucks, skid steers, front end loaders, graders, Euclid scrapers, backhoes, farm tractors, forklifts, boom trucks, fire trucks, water trucks, ambulances, paratransit vans, zamboni, gravel spreading trucks, paving machines, bull dozers, equipment trailers, along with accessories/attachments, recreational vehicles such as motorhomes, motorcycles, 3 and 4 wheeler, snow machines, and jet skiis. We have sold gold, silver, coins, jewelry, misc. surplus and more.
Attendance for some of the auctions that we have conducted has been in the hundreds and grossed millions in sales. Our company is well versed in all aspects of items to be sold and the auction services required to provide top of the line professional services. We are bonded and insured.
