Who we are
Aumann Auctions is a family owned business celebrating 60 years of personal service to their sellers and buyers. Starting in 1962 as an auction business serving their local community, the company grew to a worldwide concern conducting auctions across North America and Europe. The same family values that made them known and trusted in the small farming community where they began, has been maintained through their existence and is still a core element to their success today. Our core values are:
True Customer Service
We are a big company with a small company feel. We have helped thousands of families and collectors transition through an auction. We excel at the business of representing and selling important assets. Just as important though, we understand the emotional and sentimental aspect of moving to the next chapter.
Our expertise & product knowledge
Knowing what you are representing is paramount to the success of an auction. We’re not talking about just recognizing the model of an item. We’re talking about knowledge that identifies finite variations, production numbers, knowing how many exist and not only knowing where to market to buyers, but knowing the buyers themselves. This only comes from living and breathing the product.
Our staff are all collectors themselves. They are made up of former museum directors, authors, social media and television influencers and subject matter experts. It takes a lot of time and effort to put a collection together. To do it justice, it should be represented correctly and accurately. No one in the hobby or auction industry has more experience and product knowledge than the Aumann team!
Aumann Auctions has held the world record for the highest selling tractor for nearly 20 years. They have broken their own record many times. The previous record of $535,000 for a Marshall Colonial was shattered in April of 2022 when they sold a 1913 Case 30-60 for $1,470,000. They maintain records in nearly all of the individual brands of all tractors from steam engines to muscle tractors of the 60’s & 70’s.
Our knowledge and successes are not limited to just tractors. Aumann Auctions also has specialists in stationary engines, steam engines, brass era autos and trucks, parts, signs, toys and associated memorabilia. We’ve been setting records in those areas for decades.
We'd love to hear from you and see how our services can work for you!
