It is time to build your fleet for the 2020 spring construction season. Over 5000 lots of crawler dozers, excavators, dump trucks, truck tractors, cranes, compaction equipment, pickups, farm tractors, attachments, support items and more will be sold beginning on Monday, February 10th and running through Thursday, February 13th at 5000 Oren Brown Road in Kissimmee, FL.
For the third year in a row, Jeff Martin Auctioneers, Inc. is back with many improvements in the technical side of the business to make their services more value-added for their sellers and buyers. A fully digital check-in system has reduced wait times significantly, as well as enabled them to post items online within moments of arriving on site. Additionally, JMA has taken this entire event out of the elements this year – with something unique to the FL auction scene. Every item will be sold in a sales area, displayed by photos and on a video screen. No more slopping through the mud.
While they value each buyer equally, whether onsite or online, it is hard not to recognize that the online bidding process is growing in popularity. JMA management, along with their seasoned inventory staff members, have used the questions that arise during this online bidding process to improve their business. Popular buyer questions have been made part of the check-in procedure so that the information is readily known to everyone. Online inspections are winning converts as they work hard to provide bidders what they need to know. For example, they conscientiously evaluate each piece of machinery being virtually presented to the buyers; if there is an obvious issue, it is addressed and customers know about it, for example, a bad transmission. Also driven by technology and bidder requests, they have added a video to almost all pieces of rolling stock, showing the machine cranking, operating and maneuvering as it should.
Mr. Giles Lambertson, with Construction Equipment Guide, has this to say about technology and its effect on the auction industry, “the auction business is all about buying and selling, of course, and about the systems that undergird transactions. Systems continue to be refined by auction houses to ease and accelerate the bidding process. Pre-bid systems are in place that, on a buyer’s behalf, automatically join bidding for a particular machine. Online bidding continues to reshape the heavy machinery auction industry, including premier Florida auctions where auctioneers congregate in February for a mid-winter show. In the second month of the year, Florida is the place to be for anyone with a hankering for a piece of yellow iron.”
