Equipment Appraisals

How long does it take for IronPlanet to complete an inspection?

The time-frame and work effort required to complete an IronClad inspection will vary based on several factors including the number, type, age, condition, location(s), and accessibility of the equipment units in scope. A relatively simple inspection will typically be completed within 2 to 3 weeks of receipt of a signed engagement letter. More complex inspections will typically take more time. Of course, we will always ensure every effort to meet your specific requirements.


Seller Fees

Can I get a better deal on selling a lot of equipment?

It depends on how many pieces and what type of equipment you would like to sell as part of a package deal. Please call IronPlanet Customer Care at 1-888-433-5426, if you would like more details.
