“Reaching a million transactions is a significant milestone for our team
in the history of GovDeals,” said Roger Gravley, president of GovDeals,
Inc. “We launched 15 years ago with only four active
clients. Since then, we have grown exponentially and now represent more
than 8,500 state and local government entities in the U.S. and Canada
and have attracted an enormous global buyer base to drive competition
for offered assets. To date, we have recovered more than $1 billion for
our clients – this is a huge win for them and their constituents as
every dollar recovered is reinvested back into the community.”

Since its launch, GovDeals has sold more than $649 million in vehicles,
including sedans, SUVs, heavy and light duty trucks; $128 million in
heavy equipment, such as tractors, back loaders and excavators; $31

critical to shaping and fine-tuning our marketing and sales strategies,
which have resulted in a simple, seamless experience for both our buyers
and our sellers. This synergy is what has fueled GovDeals’ growth and
