IronPlanet holding first ever West African Auction

IronPlanet to sell over 100 items of surface and mining equipment as well as a wide range of heavy construction machinery

IronPlanet, the online auction house for pre-owned construction, mining and agricultural equipment, has announced it will be holding its first ever West African online auction on 3 September, 2014.

In conjunction with their alliance partner, GraysOnline, IronPlanet will be selling over 100 items of Surface and Mining equipment as well as a wide range of heavy construction machinery. The auction will feature machines from Caterpillar, Komatsu and many other top brands, and will contain the following specific items: Komatsu PC 1250 Excavators, Komatsu HD 785 Mining Trucks

In preparation for the auction, customers are invited to visit the site in Ghana to view the machinery on offer from August 20th to 22nd. This event will not only be a unique opportunity for attendees to learn more about IronPlanet’s business model and strategic vision for this region, but also for customers to view the equipment and speak to the experts from GraysOnline and IronPlanet in person.

Matt Bousky, Vice President for Mining at IronPlanet said: “This auction is a very exciting step for IronPlanet. The mining industry is seeing continued growth in West Africa. However, the size of mining machinery can be an issue – which is why online auctions are the ideal platform for the buying and selling of equipment for this sector.”

“IronPlanet provides a trusted and cost-effective solution to meet this need. This auction, our Ghanaian open-day and our first-ever alliance with GraysOnline in this region, demonstrate our commitment to meeting the needs of this ever-changing, strategic market.”

All items are available to view today on, and interested buyers can place  PriorityBids now online.

IronPlanet’s online auction format benefits sellers, who gain unique access to international markets, and are able to make significant cost and time savings on transportation.
