Each year hundreds of millions of dollars worth of used construction equipment is sold through IronPlanet to businesses all over the world, including Australia. Our policy of independently inspecting equipment and making it easy to bid from anywhere, has quickly made us one of the leading auctioneers of construction equipment!

Bidding is simple and fair
Bidding takes place over the internet, usually every other Thursday. You can bid automatically or take part in the auction real-time from your computer. Fair bidding is why our auctions draw thousands of attendees again and again.

Assurance through independent inspections
Most equipment sold through IronPlanet has been through a rigourous independent inspection. The results are available for you to see! Plus, we guarantee that what you see on the inspection report is what you get when you receive the equipment.

Personal Customer Care
We handle all steps of the payment process for both buyers and sellers to secure your transactions. In addition, we offer financing, transportation, and other value-added services to help you buy and sell at IronPlanet.

The IronPlanet "IronClad" Assurance symbol lets you know that one of our inspectors has personally visited the item and conducted a visual inspection of key components, taken photographs, taken selected wear-related measurements and, when appropriate, retrieved oil/fluid samples for lab analysis.

The findings from each inspection are presented free of charge for you to review before bidding on the equipment. We guarantee to you that this inspection report is a fair representation of the equipment in its true condition.

Buy with confidence at IronPlanet Auctions. With the IronClad Stamp of Assurance you can be confident that "what you see (in the inspection report) is what you get (when you receive the equipment)".
