Where ARCA Steps InThe auction space is highly fragmented and it can be difficult to know if your next auction is in good hands. Clients of ARCA rest assured that radical transparency keeps everyone on the same page. We make the entire process painless and leverage our technology, model, and audience to bring an edge to an outdated space while recovering top dollar every time.
A Tiered and Strategic ApproachDepending on the needs and timeline of our clients’, ARCA offers auction services as a primary or secondary strategy for recovering top dollar. For clients with little time, ARCA will utilize our process and vast global audience to meet your deadline. When there is more time on the table, our traditional model utilizes auctions as a second step to ensure there is a sale price for every last item on your manifest.
Efficient and Accurate Cataloging ProcessARCA’s auction cataloging and manifesting services match our intake process identically. This can take place at one of our facilities or on-site with our clients. ARCA’s technology and database pairs items together and creates perfect lot descriptions and titles at the click of a button. This saves time, money, and generates less questions from buyers resulting in a much more transparent and easy to execute process. No longer does an auction crew have to take over your facility and valuable floor space to create an auction catalog by hand.
Better ResultsARCA’s approach gets your auction live in less time with more accuracy than the status quo auction house. Once an auction is live, our marketing team connects with our global audience to find a new home for your assets. From start to finish, ARCA brings an edge to auctions that can not be found anywhere else. Our fees are simple and only apply to stand-alone auction services. When auctions take place within an Asset Recovery project the prices are subject to the terms and conditions of the project.

ARCA also researched and prepared the necessary customer base and recycling partners to meet the specific needs of the client. ARCA’s appraisal process made the financial outcomes predictable.

All of this movement is tracked and reconciled back to the individual shipment ARCA received, while saving the client over 3,000 man hours and 20,000 square feet.

“ARCA was quick and responsive.”
Public Sector Semiconductor Manufacturer
ARCA acted immediately to accurately evaluate the market value of the equipment and the required logistical efforts to complete the project. The cost to relocate this equipment outweighed its value. Although brand new, the equipment would have been destined for a scrap yard. ARCA appraisal revealed that taking over the clients facility was the best route.
Within 30 days, ARCA dispatched a team to a new city and took over operation of the facility that stored the surplus equipment. All 400 pieces of equipment were properly documented, inspected, weighed and pictured for resale into the market. All progress was efficiently documented for the clients peace of mind.
Before the deadline, ARCA found a buyer for every last piece of equipment. The sales, service, and logistics were hands-off for the client. The financial gain from this equipment was considerably larger than the scrap or liquidation income and the client regained full-use of their facility before expected.
Factory construction plans were put on pause. The equipment that was pre-purchased and stored for future expansion was now non-useful surplus and taking up considerable space required for something else. There was less than a 6-month deadline before the equipment would have to be scrapped.Read Full Success Story
“ARCA is a pleasure to deal with and they make our lives much easier.”
Public Sector Tire Manufacturer
ARCA researched the necessary requirements to recycle tire waste. This included the land and sea logistics for over 325 overweight shipments per year. ARCA developed a proposal and catered it to reflect the most important needs of the factory.
In manufacturing, costs are critical and misused space is an unnecessary cost to the goods being made. It was critical that the tire factory was able to remove all waste from their facility the day it was generated. ARCA delivered the trucking and warehousing to make this possible.
Natural rubber, blends, polyethylene, steel, nylon and sometimes a mix of all, require different vendors and processes to recycle properly. ARCA seamlessly manages and evaluates these customers for the most financial benefit to the tire factory while protecting their IP with a zero-landfill solution.
