EAGAN, Minn., Nov. 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Cat Auction Services recently announced that it will hold two unreserved public auctions on December 14th. Beginning at 9 a.m. PST at Cashman Equipment's facility at 3300 St. Rose Parkway in Henderson, Nevada, Cat Auction Services will conduct its first auction in Las Vegas. Simultaneously, Cat Auctions will hold an unreserved public auction at NMC's Rental facility in Council Bluffs, IA beginning at 11 a.m. CST. These mark the company's last auctions in 2012, and their first live auction hosted by Cashman Equipment. "We're excited to be hosting Las Vegas' first Cat Auction Services live public auction," said Todd Gilligan, Cashman Equipment's General Manager – Sales and Marketing. "While live public auctions certainly aren't a new event, we're looking forward to showcasing Cat Auctions' difference in style, approach, and features." Customers can bid on all available equipment from both the Las Vegas and Council Bluffs locations. Online bidding is also available.

The Auctions feature equipment from Cashman & NMC, along with a variety of local consignors to offer a wide selection of equipment, including a 2008 CAT 345CL and a 2007 CAT D8T. "The equipment has been assembled at our Henderson corporate headquarters and is a great mix of high-quality, well-maintained construction equipment, which will be sold with detailed inspection reports so customers know precisely what they're buying," said Gilligan.

"We are thrilled to bring the Cat Auction Services experience to the Las Vegas and Council Bluffs areas," said Rick Albin, President of Cat Auction Services. "While the online bidding option is always available and is worth checking out, our Leaderboard and theater seating create an atmosphere that is worth showing up for."

Interested buyers are invited to view the entire equipment list and detailed TA-1 level Cat Certified inspection reports online prior to the event by visiting Equipment will continue to be added until the week of the auction. Real-time online bidding will be available on the day of the auction through the company's website, but participants are invited to register early, view inspection reports, and place pre-bids. All bidders, both onsite and online qualify to win a variety of great prizes, including but not limited to cash, travel vouchers, show tickets, restaurant gift cards and more!*

The Las Vegas and Council Bluffs heavy equipment auctions are Cat Auction Services' last auctions of 2012 and end a string of live and online fall auctions, following sales in Pittsburgh, Houston, Denver, Richmond & Minot, along with monthly online-only timed auctions via Cat Auction Services' eQuipment Yard. (

Cat Auction Services entered the heavy equipment auction arena in late 2008. Reviews from all corners have been positive, and the auctions have drawn buyers from 49 states and 60 countries.

Cat Auction Services was formed through a unique partnership of Cat dealers with the endorsement of Caterpillar, Inc. The addition of Cat Auction Services to the portfolio of services available to Cat customers and others in the heavy equipment industry builds upon the company's existing customer loyalty.
