The Website service links together the excess inventory of other companies locally as well as nationwide to help companies find the equipment and/or materials they need for their next project, at a substantial discount. In most cases, items offered on this Website are new or in like-new condition. They have been overordered, ordered incorrectly, or unused as a result of changes in the project. Unlike other major auction-type sites, this Website encourages specific pricing so companies can negotiate and get the items they want when they need them, said the company. The Website is not offered to the general public, so all calls received in regard to posted items will only be from other owners and managers of companies. Postings on this site have no time limit as long as yearly membership is maintained. Along with this feature, if a company wishes to only search the Website and buy items, the buy-only package is free. They can post as many items as they’d like and search the database for items as much as desired; the charge is a yearly subscription, not per item or per search.
