IronPlanet to Host February Auction in Florida

Leader in online auctions brings global marketplace to winter Florida auctions.

IronPlanet (, a leading online marketplace for used heavy equipment, will host its first onsite and online auction from February 21 - 24, 2012, at the Fantasy of Flight attraction near Orlando.

"Each year, the February auctions attract buyers and sellers of equipment to Florida," said Greg Owens, Chairman and CEO of IronPlanet. "We're very excited to give our customers the opportunity to participate in the Florida winter auctions with the same convenience and confidence they've come to know and trust at IronPlanet."

Featuring equipment from Ring Power and other sellers, items can be previewed starting February 14 both in person at Fantasy of Flight and, just as with every IronPlanet auction, online through detailed inspection reports that come with the IronClad Assurance guarantee. Buyers can place bids online in advance of the sale using IronPlanet's PriorityBid service. During the four-day auctions, bids may be placed live at Fantasy of Flight or online through a computer, tablet, or mobile device.

"We're bringing the world of IronPlanet to Florida in February," said Owens. "With equipment onsite, both our global bidders as well as the buyers located in Florida will be able to take advantage of our online auctions and exclusive IronClad Assurance, resulting in better prices for the equipment we sell."

Consignments for the February auction in Florida are now being accepted. Sellers can auction equipment from their location or Fantasy of Flight. To learn how to add your equipment to this sale, please contact IronPlanet at 888-433-5426.
