GovPlanet is super-excited to have supplied the popular MotorTrend show "Drift This" with a HMMWV for their customizing pleasure. The military vehicle will be featured on Episode 5, which airs on June 26th on the MotorTrend app and on motortrend.com.
Over the next year, Ritchie Bros.’ GovPlanet marketplace will sell hundreds of U.S. Marine Corps (non-DLA) ITV and MTVR vehicles. The first five of each were sold on March 20 to considerable fanfare, as more than 120,000 people logged on to GovPlanet to check out the vehicles.
Every Wednesday, during our weekly online auction, GovPlanet finds new homes for the military surplus HMMWV Humvee Vehicles we sell. But we don't always get to hear about what happens to the vehicles after they're sold. Fortunately, customer Colin Gorman of Henderson, NV, was nice enough to share with us his experience and all the cool transformations he did to the HMMWV Humvee Vehicle he bought from GovPlanet. Here's Colin, in his own words, describing the sale process and the modifications he performed.
GovPlanet began selling Humvees from the U.S. Department of Defense to the public back in 2014. Now it’s set to release two new military vehicles to the U.S. public market: the ITV (Internally Transportable Vehicle), nicknamed the “Growler”, and the MTVR (Medium Tactical Vehicle Replacement).
GovPlanet is set to conduct one of our largest and most unique auctions ever on Dec 7 – 8, selling more than 10,000 military surplus items in just two days! Humvees, tactical vehicles, construction equipment, uniforms, field gear, industrial and commercial equipment and more—much of it selling unreserved.
