Two trusted names in the equipment dealer industry have joined forces to become Custom Truck & Equipment / Utility One Source Housby Online Sales, an online sales platform dedicated to the remarketing of equipment related to the utility industry. Custom Truck & Equipment / Utility One Source has partnered with Housby, a premier online sales platform, to provide its collective customers the opportunity to buy and sell their used equipment online. The partnership with Housby will allow Custom Truck & Equipment / Utility One Source to provide a complete solution to its customer base not only for equipment purchasing but also for equipment disposal.
“We’re very excited about this new opportunity with Custom Truck & Equipment / Utility One Source. Their history and outstanding customer service allows us to bring that much more to our current customers,” said Kevin Housby, president of Housby Online Sales. Through the years, we have built strong relationships with owners and managers and have responded directly to their needs by developing and delivering a host of unique, targeted products and services. Custom Truck & Equipment / Utility One Source will be the ideal partner to continue to deliver those same outstanding services.”
Custom Truck & Equipment / Utility One Source president, Fred Ross, states “Housby’s progressive, streamline and user-friendly online sales platform was a perfect fit for us as it aligned with our mission and goals to be the future of the equipment markets. Utility One Source is comprised of eight, industry-leading equipment providers and this partnership leverages each legacy company’s expertise to effectively deliver superior equipment and after-market services to the utility and heavy equipment markets of North America, all as one, cohesive and powerful entity.”
Custom Truck & Equipment / Utility One Source’s experience in new and used customized equipment, sales, leasing, rental, aftermarket parts and service, along with Housby’s expertise in online sales, asset disposal, appraisals, as well as acting as a bank system and internal transport for such assets, allows these two powerhouses to become a single-source provider to manage the entire life of their customers’ assets. In short, it means less administrative burden and a one-stop-shop for all their customized equipment needs.
The new partnership is a forward-thinking move by both parties as industry trends show that online markets are growing and buyers are increasingly turning to the Internet to purchase used equipment. In 2017, the global construction equipment market is estimated to be sized at around 192 billion U.S. dollars and it is expected that around 809,000 construction machines will be sold worldwide; in 2016, some 186,000 were projected to be delivered to customers in North America.
