AIA's October 4-7, 2000 First Mega Auction holds the record for being the "World's Biggest Auction for the Millenium," attended by bidders from 21 countries. It also set a Philippine Record as the First 4-day trucks and equipment auction.
This historic event gave the company prestige for being listed in the famous "Used Construction Equipment Auction Book," a regular publication of Tokyo-based "Industrial News Agency." AIA was featured together with the big names in the industry as Richie Bros. Auctioneers Pte. Ltd., Tiger Company Ltd., Komatsu Used Equipment Corp., Hitachi Bid, Sogo Auction and all the major auctioneers in Japan.
Laying the ground for each auction is a very intensive process. An auction cycle takes about four (4) to five (5) months. It starts with equipment sourcing abroad, consignor negotiations, importation handling, shipment unloading, hauling, documentation, equipment preparation, auction day logistics, auction day proper and collection of payments leading to final pull-out and transport of auctioned items.
A team of professional, highly-trained and experienced personnel ensures that the physical condition of each item to be sold during the auction is meticulously checked through strict professional in-house quality control system. This process involves thorough refurbishing, mechanical repair works whenever necessary and test driving to ensure their roadworthiness for the end users. AIA makes sure that all items are sold free and clear of any liens.
Interested buyers are allotted time to inspect the items prior to the auction. For buyers' convenience, all items are lined up according to type for them to inspect, perform stationary testing and compare the units. They are encouraged to bring their own mechanics or technicians for a thorough evaluation of the items they intend to buy.
AIA's management team is composed of Filipino, Japanese and American shareholders, who have close to a decade of solid experience in conducting professional auctions in Asia including their active involvement since 1996 in the Yokosuka Auctions, one of the biggest auction preparations in Japan. The same management team pioneered the live public auctions of trucks and equipment in the Philippines, making AIA unparalleled in the auction industry.
AIA aims to support the government of the economies where it operates by spurring the construction of more farm-to-market roads and other infrastructure projects. The transparency of the live, paraded public auction process enables the market to dictate and control the prices.
From the exporter, the goods are passed directly to end-users through the auctioneer. This shorter distribution chain leads to cheaper capital cost which translates to lower project cost. All the macro level, this results to lower prices and slower inflation growth.
