Working with Boom & Bucket

In September 2021, Andreini Bros was thinking through its year end equipment disposition strategy as part of their standard fleet management program. They had an older 2002 Cat 311C excavator that they were thinking about selling but didn’t want to roll the dice on resale value by sending it to an auction. Instead, the team at Andreini decided that it made sense to work with Boom & Bucket and focus on directly marketing their excavator to buyers using best in class digital marketing. 

First, a comprehensive mechanical inspection was conducted to determine if there were any maintenance issues that needed to be outlined for prospective buyers. It turned out that there was a bit of surface rust in certain spots but nothing that couldn’t be rectified with some maintenance work. Next, photos and videos were taken of the 311C to showcase its functionality. Last, a digital listing was created for the machine and syndicated across multiple different online channels to attract buyers. Within 3 weeks, the Cat 311C was sold and Andreini Bros got 20% more money than if they had sent it to auction.
