About Us

For over 15 years Apex Auctions have supported companies around the world buy, sell and manage their surplus assets. Combine that with our 75 years of industry experience, there are very few situations that we can't add our expertise and knowledge.

We help bridge the gap between buyer and seller using our cutting-edge transaction platform, a vast buyer database and precise marketing and sales.

We've designed a six-step programme to assist you whether you're buying, selling or managing your assets. This linear process can be executed in order from beginning to end or we can create a bespoke combination that suits your needs. Either way, you're always going to receive a service that is overarched with strong leadership, policy and strategy and underpinned by our easy to use, yet powerful technology.
