Hi, this is Eve from Client Support.  Scenario:  You have a customer looking for a wheel loader spec’d out with some options you don’t have in stock and as in most cases, the client wants it yesterday.  So you have a couple of choices; you can spend a few days on the phone playing telephone tag with all your contacts to see if they have something in inventory or you can send a message out over the wire.

Solution:  Have your Used Equipment Department place a Want Ad on Point2.  Simply log into the Members Area, place your request and it’s emailed to hundreds of equipment sellers worldwide that have specifically requested to receive these leads.  Your request is posted on’s website too.  The best part is that only the sellers with something to talk to you about respond.  Whether you are looking for machines, attachments or parts – Want Ads get the message out.

55% of respondents have purchased a machine they saw online

41% said that ‘Accurate Condition’ was the most important consideration when purchasing a piece of equipment; followed by ‘Price’ at 26% and ‘Photos’ at 17%.  ‘Distance from my location’ was least important with just 2% of survey respondents selecting this option.

91% use email ‘Daily’ (no surprise here!  We’re in a connected world!)

53% own between 2 and 30 pieces of equipment.

84% are online searching for machines for sale more often than ‘A few times a week.’ (46% ‘Everyday’, 13% ‘Once a week’, and 25% ‘A few times a week’)

Survey respondents were comprised of General Contractors, Heavy Industry Contractors, Mining Companies, Demo/Scrap/Waste Contractors, Forestry COntractors, Government Contractors, Ag, Oil & Gas Contractors etc.
