LINCOLN, Neb., June 6, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Sandhills Global previously reported inventory increases occurring in April across Sandhills' heavy-duty truck, semitrailer, agricultural equipment, and heavy construction machinery marketplaces. Those trends accelerated in May. Truck and trailer inventory levels, for example, increased by double digits in May while inventory levels in several construction and farm equipment categories increased between 4% and 9%. When rising inventory level trends occur, auction value decreases usually follow. In fact, Sandhills has observed auction value decreases in several categories ranging from 2% to 9% month over month from April to May.

"Sandhills' market reports are showing clear trends that sellers would be wise to track," says Sales Manager Mitch Helman. "Truck, trailer, and construction equipment sellers, in particular, should pay close attention to the market as inventory levels are up and values are heading lower."

The key metric used in all of Sandhills' market reports is the Sandhills Equipment Value Index (EVI). Buyers and sellers can use the information in the Sandhills EVI to monitor equipment markets and maximize returns on acquisition, liquidation, and related business decisions. The Sandhills EVI data include equipment available in auction and retail markets as well as model year equipment actively in use.
