What do you do about deliveries when you run the largest online auction marketplace for buying and selling specialized assets? Give direct access to uShip’s network of specialised transporters appears to be a pretty good solution.
Proxibid started out providing services to traditional off-line auctioneers enabling them to bring their real world auctions online. These days it doesn’t make sense to limit an auction to a local geographical area and Proxibid specialise in bringing live and timed auctions conducted by real auction companies onto the Internet.
Of course bidding at a distance does introduce a few delivery issues, especially if you’re buying machinery, industrial plant equipment and the odd JCB digger to boot. That’s why Proxibid and uShip have come together to give Proxibid buyer access to delivery services for pretty much anything.
uShip offers customers the ability to name their own price for shipping or receive competing quotes from a network of thousands of carriers. Carriers looking to fill empty cargo space and backhauls utilise uShip to fill the space at deeply discounted rates, helping customers save an average of 50 percent over published rates.
Shipping large, oversized items has traditionally been a major pain point for buyers, especially within online auction marketplaces. uShip’s services are now available to Proxibid buyers by clicking on the uShip Shipping Price Estimator on the Lot Detail pages for lots that offer this service.
Of course you don’t have to be using Proxibid to use uShip, you can access their network of delivery drivers direct on the uShip website.
