Manheim Heavy Truck & Equipment says it now offers customers – including private business owners like construction companies– a new channel for online buying wholesale inventory through a partnership with Proxibid. Using Proxibid’s Web services, owners and owner-operators can bid online for inventory offered by six Manheim Heavy Truck & Equipment Auctions nationwide: Manheim Arizona, Manheim Central California, Manheim Harrisonburg, Manheim Imperial, Manheim Minneapolis and Manheim St. Louis.

“As the online auction industry continues to evolve, we want to provide our customers the right tools and resources to efficiently and effectively manage their inventory,” says Karen Braddy, general manager of Manheim Specialty and Heavy Truck & Equipment. “Buying and selling online with Proxibid allows buyers to go to auctions they normally could not go to and expands the seller’s reach to a nationwide audience.”

Manheim says that by using Proxibid to shop inventory, private business owners gain a step up on their competition because of:
• Speed – Locate the needed vehicle quickly and easily;
• Convenience – Buy or sell vehicles conveniently from a desktop through select participating locations;
• Reliable Data – Research inventory from anywhere and assess condition or view condition reports online before (or instead of) attending an auction; and
• Personalized service – With a Proxibid account, users can track their transaction history and make online payments.

Proxibid says it offers Manheim Heavy Truck & Equipment customers access to its toll-free support center before, during and after every live auction, and also provides bilingual auction specialists to ensure each transaction is smooth and hassle-free.

“Proxibid’s proprietary live Internet bidding service and website were developed by auctioneers and industry-leading professionals to provide bidders with the most user-friendly and comprehensive online auction experience possible,” says Ryan Downs, Proxibid president. “We are excited to partner with Manheim Heavy Truck & Equipment to help bring the conveniences offered by modern technology to their customers.”
