Following the merger in 2017 of Yoder & Frey with Euro Auctions, the leading auctioneers in Europe, Yoder & Frey has access to a global market place and as a result online bidding has increased dramatically in the past 12 months. Now, with over 50% of all bids placed coming from the internet, with a robust online platform and with an international marketing reach, consignors’ equipment is presented to buyers in over 95 countries.

“We are seeing an increase in the quality, quantity and diversity of equipment being consigned to our auctions” explained Peter Clarke, Founder & CEO of Yoder & Frey, “This is attracting new consignors, increasing bidder turnout, resulting in our auctions achieving record hammers. Over recent months we’ve invested heavily in the sales team, with new joiners, Trent Shaftner covering Kentucky, Chris Deason covering Texas, and Emilio Machado who focuses on the Florida area. All these guys are industry ‘heavy hitters’, all with ‘black books’ of contacts, which resulted in this recent Florida sale attracting so many new consignors and such excellent, high quality machinery and equipment.”

Yoder & Frey have made significant leaps forward across all aspects of the business, with new operational and marketing initiatives implemented and the new free to use ‘tried-and-tested’ Euro Auctions internet solution immediately providing Yoder & Frey buyers with a robust and secure online sales platform enabling them to confidently bid on items with the knowledge that the quality and reliability of equipment is of a high standard.

The Yoder & Frey schedule for Kissimmee Winter Auction sale is yet unknown, however it is planned that a ‘three ring’ system will be implemented with a ‘live ramp’ style auction. All buyers can personally inspect any of the pieces of equipment catalogued they are interested in either immediately prior to or during the event.
