5 Star Auction is located just south of Iowa City, IA, and is excited to be able to offer an alternative auction service to folks in the area. Our main auction site is located just north of Highway 22 halfway between Kalona and Riverside, and our facilities allow us to run two rings at the same time. The local Amish ladies are pleased to provide food and drinks for folks during our sales, and we have restrooms on site. We offer three auctioneers routinely, but can call in friends from other auction houses if your sale requires more service. We plan to offer remote bidding in the near future, especially for our machinery auction. We have many dedicated hands, willing to work hard to make your next auction or consigned sale a success. Please give us a try.
