Consignment Sales / Fleet Management
Our clients are some of America's top logging companies. They work hard to operate and maintain their machines properly, so as to protect their value and ensure proper performance. These companies have learned they can no longer afford to trade their machines away to dealers at 50 cents on the dollar. We inspect and appraise these well cared for machines and sell them for market value. In many cases we recover for the seller twice what they would have received on trade. Over time the impact of our services to your bottom line can be the difference between surviving and thriving. Protect your equity and let us help you get the most for your used equipment.
