Since its foundation in 2000, World Wide Auctioneers has embarked upon a rapid and successful expansion of its activities and conducts Public Auctions at five strategic locations across the world. At most of its auctions you will find all kinds of used and reconditioned machinery and equipment. The company has a large number of items for sale at its auctions and customers are happy to buy through World Wide Auctioneers (WWA) as they are guaranteed competitive prices.
WWA's Middle East site is a 75,000 square metre specially designed auction facility inside the Jebel Ali Free Trade Zone, the business and export-import centre of Dubai. The Free Trade Zone is a major container port, allowing easy movement of machinery by both sellers and buyers. Dubai is long known for its business-friendly environment, and is the regional base for numerous large construction companies. It is an ideal point from which to serve the huge markets of the Gulf States, Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan.
All auctions held by World Wide Auctioneers are unreserved. No minimum prices, no buybacks, no seller bids. Every item is sold to the highest bidder. In fact, WWA guarantees an honest auction price at fair market value. Heavy equipment has traditionally been sold directly or through dealers and brokers, but over the last decade auctions have rapidly gained market share. Both buyers and sellers are attracted by the unique advantages of auctions. Sellers find that auctions dispose of equipment much faster than consignment to a broker or dealer, yielding high proceeds at very reasonable commissions.
Buyers have access to many different types of equipment produced by different manufacturers. Both find that the unreserved auction method gives confidence that the equipment has traded for a fair market price. World Wide Auctioneers founding partners and management have a combined total of over 45 years of experience in buying, selling, and auctioning of heavy equipment in Europe, Asia, and the Middle East.
The company has substantial infrastructure and major partners all over the world, but maintains a low corporate overhead structure. This combination gives WWA the efficiency of a small company with the major-market presence of a large public corporation.
WWA operates in-house, a state-of-the-art Internet site with its own equipment search engine and interactive buyer and seller features. Live on-line bidding, on-site video presentation and wireless electronic bidding systems in use at WWA auctions offer the most modern technologies available in the industry. The company combines hands-on experience in the heavy equipment auction industry with ability to leverage the marketing power and auction impact of the Internet and other technologies.
World Wide Auctioneers is committed to having top-level managers on-site at every auction and accessible to participants, allowing maximum flexibility in decision-making. Commissions are competitive with any in the business. World Wide Auctioneers is also the Official Distributor for UNIC Cranes in the Middle East. These include the extremely popular Truck-Mounted Cranes as well as the Crawler Cranes.
