Colorado’s Pacific Auction was established in 1976 by August Pacific (hence its name). It originally opened as a weekly estate business, but expanded in 1999 to include a Public Auto Auction. The Public Auto Auction now sells more used cars than any other dealer in the state of Colorado! And because the auction works on volume sales, they offer great prices compared to competing dealerships.
Their auction facility in Longmont sells estate and business liquidations. Auctions are held every Wednesday evening at 6:30pm in the 15,000 square foot facility.
Owner OJ Pratt said, “We sell hundreds of estates every year. Those estates include antique and contemporary furniture, electronics and cameras as well as collectibles and everything else imaginable.”
The Public Auto Auction is held every Saturday morning at 10am and every Wednesday evening at 6pm. The auction sells 300 to 400 cars every Saturday and 120 every Wednesday.
“Buyers at our public auto auctions are able to inspect and drive hundreds of vehicles in a short period of time,” said Pratt. “Most of our vehicles sell at 50 or 60% of what comparable vehicles are advertised in the classifieds oron-line listings.”
In addition to these, they sell real estate at their auctions, hold Federal Firearms auctions, and conduct several auctions for guns and related items every year. The company has specialists in many different areas, such as antiques, firearms, coins, automobiles, collectibles and contemporary furniture.
