SEATTLE, Jan. 21, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- bidadoo ended 2019 with record 72% revenue growth over 2018, as customers continue to rapidly adopt the online auction model over the land-based, live auction model. Significantly less selling expenses, and the trust and acceptance of online heavy equipment buying, has significantly changed the remarketing and auction industry. Sellers continue to see higher net equipment returns as they adopt the more efficient online selling model. Since releasing the bidadoo Fleet reMarketing Solutions platform in 2019, bidadoo has seen tremendous growth and adoption from many strategic accounts. Buyers benefit with the lower cost of acquisition and a more efficient, trusted and transparent marketplace.
bidadoo's Record-Breaking 2019 by The Numbers Versus 2018:
- 72% revenue growth

"We are very proud of the accomplishments of the bidadoo Team in 2019. This level of growth was achieved by the quality and commitment of the bidadoo team - something we call 'bidadoo PRIDE'," said Howard Hawk, President of bidadoo Inc. "We appreciate the support and vision of our customers and partners who recognize the efficiencies and benefits of a trusted and transparent online auction marketplace - which brings value to both our buyers and sellers. We look forward to a great new year of growth, service, and innovation with our customers in 2020."
Significant Growth - A More Efficient Model
bidadoo, in partnership with eBay, experienced high buyer demand throughout the year and supported a record number of sellers on the marketplace. bidadoo expanded dramatically with many strategic and national accounts as the industry is recognizing the efficiencies of the online model. The bidadoo model enables sellers to leave equipment at their site vs shipping it to have it staged at a live auction site. When compared to traditional or live auctions, the bidadoo model is far more cost effective and efficient versus sellers having to pay to "send equipment to auction." In addition, with the bidadoo virtual model, bidders and buyers don't have to invest their time, energy, and money to travel to a traditional or live auction site to try and source "Buyer Beware" versus "Buyer Aware" equipment. With bidadoo, buyers from around the globe can participate from their home, office, or any mobile device without the need to travel to preview or inspect equipment at an auction facility or yard.
