As the largest seller on the world’s largest online auction marketplace, eBay, bidadoo allows its sellers to reach a truly global buyer base. With the more efficient bidadoo online auction model, sellers are able to achieve superior net returns through bidadoo vs. other live and online auction providers, with quicker time-to-sale.

bidadoo Experiences Record Growth

bidadoo had another record quarter in Q3, reflecting the increase in confidence in sellers moving to an online auction model. Through bidadoo’s long-term partnership with eBay, bidadoo reaches 177 million registered users in over 190 countries world wide. bidadoo has expanded geographic coverage with 46% more “virtual” auction sites in the 3rd quarter of 2018 vs. 2017. In addition, bidadoo has sold from over 600 customer locations this year and increased the number of equipment and truck lots by 65%. bidadoo anticipates record sales through the end of 2018 with strong demand fueled by global demand, year-end tax incentives, and strong construction markets.

bidadoo Launched bidadoo Canada and Expands Team

The 3rd quarter also marked the launch of bidadoo Canada, with new bidadoo auction service centers opening in Ontario and Alberta. Driving this expansion, bidadoo grew its North American team with the addition of several industry leaders across Canada. bidadoo has been doing business with Canadian customers for many years, and this launch of bidadoo Canada is a natural progression to better serve the large Canadian market with a trusted, efficient online model.

bidadoo Expands Support of Several Strategic and National Accounts

The 3rd quarter of 2018 marked significant growth in several strategic partners, including international rental companies Herc Rentals, Sunbelt Rentals, BlueLine Rental, United Rentals - along with manufacturers including Case, JCB, Genie Industries -- a Terex Brand, and The Boeing Company. National Accounts are very interested in bidadoo’s access to a broader audience than traditional auctions, to help move higher volumes of equipment. Reflecting this broader market, bidadoo typically has participation from approx. 10 times the number of bidders per lot sold vs traditional auctions, providing large fleet sellers increased speed to market and a much more efficient and effective marketplace vs. traditional auctions.
