Goodrich Auction Service Inc. was started in 1973 by Ed Goodrich Jr. He started having general auctions for farm equipment dealers, farmers, and contractors. At that time, sales were held at the dealers' or individuals' locations. In about 1980, he started a yard where monthly tractor and machinery sales were held. Somewhere along the line, he started a tractor salvage yard, which has grown to be one of the largest in the northeast, dismantling tractors and construction equipment for the resale of parts. Both businesses have continued to grow, and are represented in this website.
Besides conducting his own auctions, he is the main auctioneer for a national construction equipment auction company, as well as working for numerous monthly farm equipment auctions in the northeast and Canada.
