April 12 – 14 auction attracts 10,750+ bidders from 55 countries
With tight equipment supply in the market, we continue to deliver selection for buyers and great returns for consignors, selling more than 4,400 equipment items and trucks for US$57+ million from our Houston, TX auction site last week.
The April 12 – 14 unreserved auction attracted 10,750+ bidders from 55 countries, with approximately 88% of the equipment being purchased by U.S. buyers, including 44% purchased by Texans. The remaining 12% was purchased by international buyers from as far away as Bolivia, Taiwan, and the Netherlands. Leading up to the auction, online equipment views for the Houston April auction were up 70% year over year.
“We continue to see incredibly strong pricing for late-model equipment and trucks, resulting in a lot of happy consignors, eager to sell again,” said Chuck Roberson, Regional Sales Manager. “Last week in Houston, we had a fantastic selection of assets available, including part one of a complete dispersal for MDS Boring & Drilling, which included pipelayers, earthmoving equipment, trucks, and trailers. Part two of the MDS dispersal will be sold in our next Houston live auction in June. Contact us today to consign your equipment or trucks to the event!”
