PLANET CRANES - ANDREW FOSTER, OWNER, FOSTER CRANE & EQUIPMENT LIMITED TALKS ABOUT HIS EXPERIENCE ON PLANET CRANES Back to news

Planet Cranes is yours to explore!

When looking through the Planet Cranes website you are immediately struck by how welcoming and easy to navigate the site is. Being the owner of Foster Cranes & Equipment and a potential seller, I was tempted to join Planet Cranes by its consistent promoted benefits including being part of Europe’s first global online portal for buying & selling cranes, trucks and construction equipment. The site had been developed to deliver the latest technology available to the market, and I would have access to a global database, which meant I had thousands of potential buyers.

I couldn’t have been more satisfied with the website’s functionality and ease of use. I was quickly able to sign up and list my equipment within minutes, then start selling immediately, allowing potential buyers to quickly find, view and enquire about the equipment I was selling. This together with Planet Cranes marketing support and comprehensive social media coverage gave me great confidence in knowing I had everything in terms of support to successfully sell my equipment.

The tips on selling my equipment were invaluable, providing advice on the information and photographs you need to include in your equipment listing and how to make your description and images stand out. This included having as much information as possible available to increase the authenticity of your equipment and ensuring the equipment was as clean and tidy as possible to really come to life in the photographs.

Having electronic versions of maintenance records, testing and registration papers and any certification requirements were also advised, so they were ready to send by email to prospective purchasers. Additionally, having a report compiled on your machine by an independent professional was recommended as potential buyers were seen as having more trust in the equipment if there was an independent report.

Within one week of listing my equipment I was excited and delighted to receive the news that I had my first confirmed sale of a Liebherr LTM1100 Mobile Crane through Planet Cranes. I cannot recommend Planet Cranes enough for buying or selling cranes, trucks or construction equipment. Whether you are a buyer or seller make sure you explore Planet Cranes today, you will not be disappointed.
