Introducing IronPlanet's Bigger Search Experience

Prepare to have more options, better viewability, and a search that's tuned in to your specific needs with new features in IronPlanet's marketplace. We're releasing IronPlanet's updated look and improved searches so you can find the equipment you need quickly. 

Search Results That Are Easier to Read

In response to customer feedback, we're updating our site to make buying even easier. Previously, search results were shown in a grid layout. We learned that losing your place is a common problem with long, vertical columns of text, so we made reading search results easier by replacing the grid format with a more eye-pleasing list display.

Old layout - less information per item in a grid format.
"Make it better," you said.
We heard you. Horizontal format allows for more information that's easier to read


For those who prefer their layouts "classic," we've got you covered with an option to view your results in the traditional layout. Simply click on the grid icon above the top left photo to switch views.

Clearing the Way for More Information . . .

By taking an editor's eye to our pages, we cleaned up the items that weren't providing the absolute best service for our customers. The result was enough extra space to include fresh information on auctions, equipment, and events. 

. . . Means Better Buying

The homepage has always been a wealth of information for upcoming deals; in the coming week you'll see a new layout which will make it easier for you to find popular packages, equipment, and categories directly under the banner. The items will be constantly updated so you'll see the most recent IronPlanet goods and events without scrolling. The category pages also got a makeover, listing items for easy readability and searching.

Fresh Deals, Served Daily

We're especially excited about the new Deals of the Day page, which lists hot deals on a variety of equipment: everything from articulated dump trucks to trailers. This dynamic feature will be a good page to bookmark and check often.


We appreciate our buyers in a big way. Head over to our new pages, open the hood and take a look around at how we've tricked them out.
