An orderly liquidation sale is a 30-90 days negotiated sale of high value equipment targeting the end-user marketplace. The longer selling period allows corporate users time for detailed inspections and the time required for capital expenditure approvals. It also allows the seller time to consider offers, combinations of offers and counter offers. The entire process is managed a dedicated liquidation specialist with the equipment and industry knowledge required to facilitate the sales process. The orderly liquidation sale often precedes the date-certain auction, thereby motivating interested parties to make buying decisions.
