The 2014 Winter Olympics have officially begun in Sochi, Russia, where countries from around the world send representatives in the form of athletes to compete and put their bid in for being the best to offer in a particular event or category.
The atmosphere is unlike anything most people can imagine.
But what’s really ironic is that the Sochi Olympics has a lot in common with Expert Heavy Equipment Auctions.
Here’s what we mean: Just like athletes compete and put in a bid for being the best in a particular category, the same thing goes on during one of EHE Auctions, auctions.
It doesn’t matter if you’re in search of a Caterpillar Motor Grader, a Case Backhoe, a Genie Boom Lift or a Komatsu excavator, just to name a few, EHE Auctions provides both buyers and sellers with high quality heavy equipment in a variety of categories.
Just like there are differences in athletes in Sochi, EHE Auctions is also different from other online auction companies.
EHE Auctions was created to offer a service for individuals and companies that want to dispose of their heavy construction or farm equipment.
However, unlike most auction companies that charge listing fees, plus 3 to 18 percent of the sales price, with EHE Auction, there are no consignment fees.
Now we know that not having to pay listing fees sound great, but if you’re like most people, then we also know that you may have:
Pick up any newspaper, log onto Yahoo News, Google News, Huffington Post or turn on your radio or local TV news, and you’ll quickly see how security over the past two days in Sochi have been a huge concern to the point to where many event venues in Sochi are virtually empty during competition.
Security concerns, as it is in Sochi, are also a concern for most when it comes to buying or selling anything online.
EHE Auctions’ online auction platform for heavy equipment has implemented a strategy that eliminates security concerns by focusing on an auction type that reduces risks to the seller.
EHE Auctions focuses solely on reserve auctions rather than absolute auctions.
A reserve auction allows the seller to set a minimum price, therefore, reducing their risk.
Sellers have traditionally agreed to absolute auctions in the past, because auction companies have reduced the risk to the seller, because it shows them past auction results to give them an idea of the final sale price.
But even in the event that security is no longer an issue, just as the case is with athletes in Sochi, there’s always one more thing that can be an issue:
Nerves and adrenaline are all part of competing in any sport, let alone the Olympics.
However, that same nervousness and adrenaline often shows up while trying something new, especially an online auction for heavy equipment.
EHE Auctions has a process in place that makes the buying and selling quick, easy and safe.
And when it’s all over, just as it is with the hope of all athletes competing in Sochi to come away with the gold, the EHE Auction process empowers users to seize a golden opportunity, whether selling or buying.
