Complete Dispersal Specialists

Owners choose complete asset dispersals for multiple reasons. However, most make this decision because they realize their assets represent their equity. One thing to note is that most construction companies are not good candidates to be purchased or merged by another company or private equity.

If you are considering retirement, an equipment liquidation, selling your entire business, or you need cash flow now, you have come to the right place. Equipment dispersals are a specialty at Black Star. We use our Iron Exchange® process – which may include a blended approach of private selling, live virtual auctions, and timed auctions – to get you where you want to be.

Learn more about why it makes sense to disperse your lifetime assets with Black Star.

Work with Black Star’s Dispersal Team

With Black Star you can have confidence in knowing we have your interests as our priority, and we will work with you to make sure we deliver on your realistic expectations.

Our sellers had many reasons for selling all their assets or realigning their fleets. Once you reach out to us and we have a conversation to discover what’s driving your need to sell, we will get started.

We can provide you with current market values on items for selling consideration. If you have prepared a list of ready-to-sell equipment, you can just email that to us. We will take it from there, meaning less work for you while you focus on your other priorities.
