bidadoo reported record sales for its first quarter (Q1), as it continues to see a rapid shift from traditional models to online auctions and remarketing.
SEATTLE, April 21, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- bidadoo reported record sales for its first quarter (Q1), as it continues to see a rapid shift from traditional models to online auctions and remarketing. bidadoo, a strategic partner with eBay, experienced record buyer demand throughout the first quarter and represented the highest number of sellers on the marketplace. Strong buyer demand drove dramatically higher selling prices by an average of over 35%+ across many equipment and truck categories.
bidadoo had a record first quarter as buyers and sellers further leveraged the benefits of bidadoo's 100% online model and partnership with eBay. bidadoo served a record number of sellers across North America as they have expanded their salesforce and operations capabilities.
bidadoo drove significant expansion with many strategic accounts as the industry is recognizing the efficiencies, cost savings, and greater asset returns of the online model. The first quarter of 2022 saw marked growth in several strategic partners, including international rental companies like Sunstate Equipment, Sunbelt Rentals, Herc Rentals, and United Rentals, along with some of the biggest contractors and equipment owners.
During the first quarter of 2022, items sold through bidadoo's weekly no-reserve online auction traveled an average of nearly 1,000 miles from the selling site to their final destination. As many sellers want to leverage a global market and prefer not to sell equipment and trucks back into their local markets, bidadoo served them well by shipping over 70% of items sold to out-of-state/province buyers.
- 87% of items sold from Pennsylvania left the state
- 84% of items sold from Ohio left the state
- 84% of items sold from Ontario left the province
- 80% of items sold from Florida left the state
- 61% of items sold from Texas left the state
- 61% of items sold from California left the state
With 19 years of dedicated online remarketing experience, bidadoo continues to attract an audience of true end-users and global buyers. bidadoo's trusted on-demand marketplace eliminates the need to travel to purchase or sell equipment - bringing the auction to you. For example, bidadoo conducted a fleet realignment project for a major specialty and contractor in Ohio - with nearly $2,000,000 of equipment sold, every item was sold to out-of-state or out-of-country buyers highlighting the power of the bidadoo and eBay platform.
In addition to bidadoo's weekly, no-reserve online auction, customers have also utilized bidadoo's Buy-Now Marketplace to sell and source quality equipment. The first quarter saw a 18% increase in items sold and a 15% increase in amount sold, year-over-year.
"We have partnered with bidadoo because of the advantages that their weekly no-reserve online platform and their Buy-Now Marketplace provide. Through their strategic partnership with eBay, the marketing attracts and supports true end-users that normally would not use auctions to source equipment." Explains Craig Sickmiller, CFO, MCM Management Corporation. "bidadoo provides a level of equipment reports, photos, videos, and service team access that provides the transparency needed for the buyers to be more fully informed about the equipment they are bidding on. With this level of information, a bidder can confidently assess the value of the online equipment and bid with confidence. One hundred percent of our equipment was sold either out-of-state or out of the country. When selling specialty equipment and services regionally it is important for us to find buyers that understand the value of the equipment. bidadoo's approach reaches and informs those buyers helping us achieve the highest value. For both buyers and sellers - bidadoo takes care of everything, making it easy to do business with them."
