Online auction company IronPlanet has announced that it will conduct its first West African online auction for surface and mining equipment, and construction machinery on 3 September 2014
IronPlanet will work with GraysOnline to sell over 100 items from brands like Caterpillar and Komatsu. Specifically, the Komatsu PC 1250 excavators and Komatsu HD 785 mining trucks will be available at the auction.
Matt Bousky, vice-president for mining at IronPlanet, said, “This auction is a very exciting step for IronPlanet. The mining industry is seeing continued growth in West Africa. However, the size of mining machinery can be an issue — which is why online auctions are the ideal platform for the buying and selling of equipment for this sector.”
Customers are invited to visit the site in Ghana to view the machinery till 22 August 2014. The auction would facilitate customers to learn about IronPlanet’s business model and speak to experts from GraysOnline and IronPlanet in person.
The format of IronPlanet’s online auction benefits sellers, who can gain access to international markets and can save them money and time. In addition, they have access to a wide range of equipment at market prices, which come with inspection reports and IronPlanet’s Iron Clad Assurance.
