How it Works for Buyers

Once logged in, commercial and wholesale buyers have the ability to bid on, and buy, listings for multiple shipping containers. The listings appear similar to standard single unit listings; however, if the equipment count on the listing is more than one and the “multibid” option is activated buyers, can make an offer on any number of containers included in the listing. For example: If an auction listing is for 10x 20' shipping containers and bidder 1 offers $2000 for one unit, and bidder 2 offers $1500 for 5 units, the first six units would be sold at the close of the auction for 1x at $2000, and 5x at $1500. shipping container listing

How it Works for Sellers

Sellers can create a single listing for multiple shipping containers of the same type, and allow potential buyers to bid on one, or all units attached to the listing. Sellers can also offer discounts for larger purchases, or other offers specific to wholesale buyers that can manage the after sale services themselves (maintenance and repairs, trucking and delivery, etc.). This system streamlines the bidding process that many sellers use by providing an efficient software application that manages the bidding process, either publicly or on a white label platform. sell shipping containers
