Pleasanton, CA - IronPlanet, a leading online marketplace for used heavy equipment, today announced it has become the exclusive auction site for IRON Search, a leading online remarketing outlet for agricultural equipment.
Equipment dealers can now seamlessly move inventory from IRONSearch.com to IronPlanet.com for auction as the result of a newly formed alliance between the two industry leaders. Additionally, equipment to be auctioned at IronPlanet is now searchable on IRONsearch.com.
"We are very excited to offer dealers a seamless transition from IRON Search listings to IronPlanet's online auctions and the convenience of selling equipment without any undue transportation expense, plus IronPlanet's exclusive IronClad Assurance resulting in better prices for the dealer's equipment," says Jeff Jeter, Executive Vice President of IronPlanet. "We look forward to working with IRON Search to enhance their marketplace experience through the integration with IronPlanet and the ability for sellers to send aged inventory to IronPlanet."
Unlike traditional auctions, sellers at IronPlanet achieve faster and more profitable sales through weekly auctions, fair market value for equipment, low selling costs, and a global audience of buyers. IronPlanet sells the equipment from the consignor's location, eliminating transportation costs for the seller. The detailed inspection reports and exclusive IronClad Assurance attract bidders from around the world and enable buyers to bid with a high degree of confidence.
"Everyone wants more - buyers want more selection and sellers want more ways to sell what they have at fair market value," states David Greenberg, president of IRONsearch.com. "The alliance makes it possible to provide more for both."
IRON Search subscribers who manage their used inventory and publish equipment listings for sale on the Web using IRON Search will now be able to consign inventory to auction on the IronPlanet auction site. Using IRON Search, dealers can choose which pieces of equipment go to auction and when, resulting in improved inventory turnover rates and reduced handling costs.
