Yoder & Frey ramps-up plans for Kissimmee Auction 2019 and announces ring schedule

Yoder & Frey, leading auctioneers of heavy construction and agricultural equipment in the USA and the founders of the now famous Kissimmee Winter Auction that’s in its 45th consecutive year, is seeing massive interest and growth in the upcoming Florida sale 13-16 February. Three separate sales rings will be in use across each of the four days to accommodate the phenomenal volume of quality new, used and surplus equipment being consigned to this auction.

“Online bidding has absolutely soared in the past year with well over half of all lots now being sold online,” stated Peter Clark, President of Yoder & Frey. “Our investment in a robust online platform and the international reach we’re now achieving has directly increased the appeal of the event meaning it now appeals to many more buyers which in turn has resulted in more consignors trusting us with bigger and better lots. This combination also means Yoder & Frey Auctions invariably attract premium prices and our buyers are delighted with the quality and specifications of the equipment they acquire.”

In another significant change, all of the items going under the hammer will be sold on the day, without reserve, so bidding is expected to be fierce and there could be real opportunities for some buyers to secure some real bargains. The quality and scope of the equipment being consigned to the Kissimmee sale is exceptional and already includes a number of the larger, ‘blue ribbon’ items. There are already over 100 6‑20+ ton excavators consigned to this auction including several unused 2017 Doosan DX225LC Hydraulic 20+ton models and a good choice of exceptionally low hour 2018 CAT and Doosan models. Similarly there is a real choice of dozers ranging from a 2017 CAT D5K2 LGP crawler tractor with enclosed cab through to a 2001 John Deere 650H LT that’s still expected to go for good money.  Interested buyers need to visit the Yoder & Frey website (www.yoderandfrey.comto see the full inventory.  

 All buyers have the opportunity to personally inspect any of the pieces of equipment catalogued they are interested in either immediately prior to or during the event.  The preliminary schedule for the on-site auction order of sale is below and detailed inventory listings, with more being added daily, can be viewed via the homepage.

 Yoder & Frey joined forces with the Euro Auctions Group in January 2018, gaining access to a global market place in which it can promote consignors’ equipment to over 150,000 buyers in over 95 countries; and has made significant leaps forward across all aspects of the business.  New operational and marketing initiatives have already been implemented and the new free, ‘tried-and-tested’ Euro Auctions internet solution immediately provided Yoder & Frey buyers with a robust and secure online sales platform enabling them to confidently bid on items interest with the knowledge that the quality and reliability of equipment has increased and that shipment can effortlessly be arranged to wherever they are located.

 “Last year we made a radical change to this event by moving to a ramp-style approach rather than having the whole entourage move around the massive yard to each piece of equipment being auctioned. This proved a real success with both bidders and consignors.  This winning approach will be repeated again this year and with the move to it being a 100% absolute auction This Kissimmee Winter auction is really shaping up and should be the best ever,” concluded Peter Clarke. “We will continue to industriously work with consignors right up to the first sale day to add even more quality lots to the auction catalogue. Buyers are also now registering for this spectacular event and we are anticipating a phenomenal turnout both in person and online.”
