ExchangeBase is a strategic partner focused on managing and selling large surplus assets from some of the largest companies in the world by connecting them to our buyer marketplace.
We pair our sellers with resellers, liquidators, capital partners, real estate partners, auction houses, scrap dealers and more. These sellers provide our competitive marketplace with a consistent feedstock of locations, fleet, scrap, equipment and inventory. Our proprietary process connects the appropriate buyers to the assets, enabling us to sell the assets quickly, responsibly and for the greatest return.
ExchangeBase manages the entire disposition process on behalf of our sellers. By making the disposition process more efficient, ExchangeBase helps sellers move assets in a way that is fast, responsible and valuable. We have the proven expertise, tools and technology to maximize revenue for our seller’s assets, each and every time.
Full locations are our specialty – we move hundreds of them a year. This includes full plant liquidations, entire facility demolitions or the equipment inside, the sale of a location's equipment, land and building, orphan facility sales and more.
Our expertise and experience in dealing with these large-scale transactions helps to make a smooth disposition process for our buyers and sellers. While a location bid event is open, ExchangeBase coordinates all buyer site visits and acts as a liaison to get any questions answered and logistics coordinated.
If it rolls, ExchangeBase can set it in motion. Our Fleet marketplace features bids containing semi-tractors, tankers, vehicles, trailers, forklifts, heavy/construction equipment and more.
Because of its perpetual nature, ExchangeBase's sellers are consistently running fleet bids to move the assets quickly. This gives our buyers an ongoing feedstock of vehicles, equipment and more that can be purchased directly from the source.
Moving large motors to entire manufacturing lines – and everything in between, ExchangeBase's large equipment marketplace provides consistent feedstock to equipment resellers, dealers, auction houses and liquidators.
Regardless of their core business, nearly all of our sellers have surplus equipment assets they are looking to sell. This provides ExchangeBase's buyers with a wide variety of equipment types to purchase. While the majority of the equipment sold through ExchangeBase is considered common, unique and desirable pieces of equipment are readily available.
Many of our sellers have valuable materials across their locations that are byproducts of their manufacturing process, equipment that has reached the end of its life or equipment that simply cannot be sold for intended use because of intellectual property reasons.
ExchangeBase gathers as much information as possible about these materials and brings them to our scrap dealers for responsible removal. The entire process is outlined by ExchangeBase, including management of pricing relative to an agreed upon index, providing certificates of destruction, as well as defining responsibilities and expectations.
ExchangeBase puts your surplus and overstock inventory into motion. By the pallet or truck load, ExchangeBase facilitates the disposition of new inventory that is both one-off and perpetual.
Industrial, oil and gas, automotive, plumbling, electrical, and general merchandise, ExchangeBase offers consistent inventory from some of the world’s largest companies. These assets are packaged into attractive bids so that our marketplace of liquidators and resellers can benefit financially.
Everything that is moved through ExchangeBase is uploaded into an Internal Catalog following our 6-point-plus inspection process. This online tool gives our sellers visibility to all available surplus across an enterprise to help them make the best disposition decisions possible.
After cataloging an asset, it becomes available for internal redeployment or sale through a private bid. The Exchangebase concierge team combines like items from the Internal Catalog into lots. Those lots are then packaged for sale through a private bid. Use the links below to find out more about how ExchangeBase serves the buyer and seller.
To create the most comfortable and competitive marketplace, all assets sold through the ExchangeBase platform are housed in private, invite-only bids. We use private bids to protect our sellers' interests, allowing them to control the audience that sees the assets and associated documents in a bid.
Registered buyers are invited to these bids based on seller request, as well as the buyer's purchase preferences and history. Invitations come via email when the bid is opened and are made available to the buyer through their Online Center. Buyers place offers while the bid is open and they are visible to the seller.
Throughout the bid event buyers can submit offers on items or locations at any time. Once the bid is closed, sellers review and accept offers along with our Concierge team.
Depending on the bid offer type, the buyer is either awarded a lot, multiple lots or all the lots in the bid. The winning buyer is notified via email, an invoice is created and the remaining buyers receive notification that they were not awarded items in the bid. After a buyer pays for the assets, the items are available for pick-up.
After an asset has been awarded and invoiced, the payment is made through ExchangeBase's payment collection process. Once the funds have cleared and all required paperwork has been collected, the seller is notified to release the assets. The buyer can then pick-up their assets or they can be given access to the facility.
All historical data relating to each transaction can be accessed online, 24/7 in the cloud.
Throughout the bidding process and after it is over, the platform gives buyers and sellers the visibility to manage the surplus asset process. ExchangeBase is cloud based, meaning that data is available 24/7 from anywhere Internet access is available.
Additionally, data on past sales, invoices, payment history, documents and more is readily available. Our platform acts as an online filing cabinet where reports can be generated, reviewed and exported.
