The Last Bid™ is an authoritative guide to current auction values for used heavy equipment, and trucks. EquipmentWatch has compiled these values from information recorded by our qualified field representatives and research staff. Our employees and agents check and verify equipment data against the auctioneers published sales brochures. Our agents and employees check serial numbers, make and model information, machine configurations, and mechanical condition prior to each major sale.

All major auctions are attended by our staff to ensure that the information included in The Last Bid™ provides strong coverage of the auction market. The Last Bid™ is the world's most-widely used publication for determining values for used heavy equipment, and trucks and trailers.

Other companies have tried to duplicate our efforts but have fallen short. There is simply no substitute for experience. We have been reporting these values for twenty-three years.

All information was derived from reliable sources and believed to be correct. Year models are determined from the most current available serial number information; however, the publisher will not guarantee or be responsible for accuracy or completeness of the data.
