In a world fueled by smart phones, tablets, laptops and desktop computers, it's never been easier to buy virtually anything online — all by just the simple click of a button.

Now, due to a new online purchasing platform offered by Construction Equipment Guide (CEG), you can buy and sell used construction equipment the same way — safely and conveniently — from equipment dealers you already know and trust.

CEG now offers sellers the ability to turn advertisements into interactive listings with transactional capabilities. “Buy Now” and “Make Offer” options currently are available for a select, but rapidly growing, number of equipment dealers on ConstructionEquipmentGuide.com. CEG has partnered with Proxibid, the world's most trusted online Marketplace, to power all transactions, enabling anyone anywhere in the world with an internet connection to purchase equipment at ConstructionEquipmentGuide.com.

Buy Now … or Make Offer

Equipment dealers participating in this new program can list equipment for sale leveraging “Buy Now” and “Make Offer” technologies. With “Buy Now” the seller sets a specific price for an item, which is sold immediately. “Make Offer” allows a buyer and seller to negotiate the price of an item.

All items available for sale include detailed images and complete descriptions including serial numbers. Sellers provide as much detail about their items for sale as possible, even inspection reports and vehicle history when available, to ensure buyers have as much information as possible to make an educated buying decision.

Purchasing equipment on ConstructionEquipmentGuide.com is easy. Simply select “Find Used Equipment” in the dropdown menu on the right-hand side of the homepage and select a participating dealer. View the equipment for sale and click the buttons to “Buy Now” or “Make Offer.” Also, click on the “Proxibid” tab at the top of our homepage to learn more about buting and selling in this new marketplace.

“Proxibid is committed to providing industry-leading ecommerce solutions for the heavy construction equipment category,” said Ryan Downs, president and CEO of Proxibid. “We are excited partner with Construction Equipment Guide, a leading resource for the equipment industry, making it safe for buyers and sellers of equipment to connect and transact online.”

More Views, More Sales

Since launching this new ecommerce platform, equipment dealers currently participating in the CEG Marketplace have seen a dramatic increase in the number of visits to their equipment listings — some by as much as 99 percent!

Purchase and Sell Equipment With Peace of Mind

Buying through Proxibid | Selling through Proxibid

The same technology that powers Proxibid's billion-dollar platform has been extended to Construction Equipment Guide. All sales are monitored by Proxibid's proprietary buyer vetting tool to ensure only qualified buyers can purchase equipment from CEG.

Proixbid offers a fully integrated wire payment service, which protects both buyers and sellers throughout the transaction process. This service is customizable to facilitate inspection hours. Only Proxibid offers dispute resolution services. In situations when buyers and sellers come to an impasse, Proxibid mitigates the dispute acting as an impartial third party. This is a unique service not offered elsewhere.
