eQuipment Yard to Debut Online-Only Service

March 7, 2012

eQuipment Yard, Cat Auction Services' online-only timed auction service, will make its 2012 debut on March 21 at 9 a.m. central time with bidding available beginning on March 16.

Like its live auction counterpart, eQuipment Yard auctions are unreserved and feature a broad assortment of heavy equipment from a number of manufacturers, including a 2008 Caterpillar 320DL RR and a 2008 Caterpillar D6N LGP. Registrants can view detailed TA-1 level inspection reports and place pre-bids online prior to the event. Lots will begin to close at 9 a.m. on March 21.

In addition to detailed inspection reports and abundant photos/videos of the equipment, Cat Auction Services gives buyers access to parts and service, financing, insurance options and Equipment Protection Plans on qualified equipment. For consignors, eQuipment Yard means the ability to move equipment more quickly and add it to a global inventory viewed by a global audience.

Cat Auction Services will offer monthly eQuipment Yard timed sales through the rest of 2012. Cat Auction Services’ president Rick Albin said, “We’re extremely pleased with the results of our first eQuipment Yard auction. The sales total significantly exceeded our projections.
