Joey Martin Auctioneers Holds October Auction in Georgia

Thu October 14, 2021 - Southeast Edition #21

If it's a damp October Saturday in Blairsville, Ga., you know it's about auction time for Joey Martin Auctioneers. As the morning fog of Oct. 9 dissipated, a crowd converged on the sale site, making for a huge turnout of onsite registered bidders and what was expected to be a near record number of online bidders.

A nice line-up of dozers, excavators, mini/compact equipment, trucks, trailers, farm equipment and more made for a super-successful sale. CEG
