How It Works

en español


  1. Listing equipment is FREE.

    To list an item on MyMachineryAuction (MMA) you must logon to MMA or first register for a free MMA account, if you do not already have one.
  2. PAYMENT PROCESSING when equipment is SOLD.

    Pays a SELLER's FEE of 10% or 15% - 10% if the SELLER lists the item by himself; 15% if we assist the SELLER when the item is listed. The Fee is paid only when the item is sold and proceeds are received by MMA. The SELLER receives 90% or 85% (depending upon the SELLER Fee percentage) of the BUYER's Winning Bid amount.

    Example: $ 1,000 Payment is received by MMA from the Winning Bidder for the item. In case the Seller’s fee is 10% the SELLER receives …$ 900 from the $ 1,000 proceeds and MMA retains the remaining $ 100.

    The Item’s Highest Bidder pays a BUYER’s PREMIUM of 12.5% or 15% of the winning bid- depending on the value level of an item. The Invoice for the item includes the item’s Winning Bid amount plus a 12.5% or 15% Buyer’s Premium.

    Example: The Winning Bid is …$ 1,000. The Invoice for the item includes the Winning Bid amount of …$ 1,000 plus a 15% Buyer's Premium of …$ 150 totaling a …$ 1,150 Invoice amount to complete the Winning Bidder's purchase of the item.

TERMS & CONDITIONS - MyMachineryAuction Sale.


Use My Machinery Auction’s step-by-step self-list service to create a listing for the equipment you want to sell. After logging in, click “Add New Listing” to get started.

Step 1:Create a Description for Your Equipment

  • Enter Brand, Model, and Equipment Description. Access our database of over (10,000) different equipment descriptions to help you list! For more than (20) years, EX-FACTORY INC has accumulated data and descriptions of these machines.

Step 2:Pricing, Rigging and Loading information

  • You can enter a Reserve Amount or use “No Reserve” (recommended). MMA Tip: Reserves should be set at 15 - 30% of what you think the item might sell for. High reserves discourage bidders from bidding and might result in unsold items and low final bids.

    We very often recommend “No Reserve” for Auction listings, because bidders think that they are going to get a “DEAL” and more bidders get involved early on; they compete with each other, and the price goes up.
  • Rigging/Loading/Equipment Pickup – Tell us if you can load the equipment or if it is going to be the Buyer’s responsibility, and when the equipment can be picked up. - Just in case, EX-FACTORY has a Freight/Logistics Department, and if required, we can provide transportation service for the Buyer.

Step 3:Upload Photos of Your Cleaned Up Equipment.

  • At least (1) photo of the equipment is required, but in most cases "not enough"! You can upload as many as you like, and (4 or 5) should be fine for a shop-size standard machine.
    MMA Tip: Photos sell! When you are listing, a tip's link will show you good and bad photo examples, in addition to tips for taking the best photos (lighting, staging, sequencing, etc.).

Step 4:Rearrange Your Photos

  • This step allows you to arrange your photos in the order you prefer; especially useful when you have something like (10) or more photos.

Step 5:Submit Your Listing

  1. Review the information you provided and edit as necessary.
  2. Review and accept the MMA Seller Agreement (click here to preview) for your equipment and submit the listing to EX-FACTORYAuctions - MMA. (The listing is usually approved the same day.)


The review includes your description and key specifics like …did you choose the correct machine type, do you have the YMFG (year of manufacture, if available), Serial Number, and Electric/Voltage. Showing your item in the best light will bring the highest price at the end of the Auction. We may request new pictures or pictures with more detail. Tap into our knowledge of what Buyers want to see, use it to your advantage, and use it to fetch a higher selling price.


Once your listing is approved it will immediately be live in the "My Machinery Auction" section on the EX-FACTORYAuctions website; it will be promoted and offered for a minimum of (2) weeks.
Your Auction will always end on the third Monday from when your asset goes live on our Online Auction site.
