IronPlanet, a leading online marketplace for used heavy equipment, today launched TruckPlanet, an online marketplace dedicated exclusively to buying and selling used commercial trucks.
“We are very excited to bring the same marketplace that changed the used equipment business to the truck industry,” said Greg Owens, CEO of IronPlanet. “Truck buyers and sellers can now enjoy the convenience and confidence at TruckPlanet that our used equipment customers have come to know and trust at IronPlanet.”
Since IronPlanet pioneered online equipment auctions over a decade ago, the company has sold over $3 billion of used equipment including thousands of trucks. TruckPlanet connects buyers and sellers of used commercial trucks through its online auctions and exclusive IronClad Assurance buyer protection program.
“With more than $500 million of used trucks sold to date, IronPlanet has proven expertise in helping customers buy and sell used trucks," said Randy Berry, senior vice president of operations and services, IronPlanet. “We are leveraging our 13 plus years of used heavy equipment and vocational truck expertise to create a flexible online marketplace that meets the specific needs of the over-the-road commercial truck industry.”
From day cabs to sleepers, refrigerated trucks to flatbeds, and light-duty work pickups to heavy haul tractors, TruckPlanet offers a wide array of used commercial trucks for sale. To give buyers a thorough understanding of the condition of the vehicles, TruckPlanet provides detailed inspection reports backed by IronClad Assurance, the industry’s only guaranteed inspection reports. These guaranteed reports allow customers to bid with confidence, driving better vehicle prices. With multiple auctions every month, sellers also enjoy faster time to cash.
Additionally, TruckPlanet offers value-added services to make the buying experience easier, including truck financing and warranty programs. TruckPlanet also features dedicated, hands-on customer care agents who help buyers through the process from start to finish.
TruckPlanet’s first auction on May 7 is an exclusive auction of over 300 Ryder road-ready trucks. For more information about TruckPlanet, visit www.truckplanet.com.
