National Equipment Search CenterNational Equipment Search Center, Fridley, Minn., works through dealers to provide farmers with nationwide lists of available equipment. Listings come into the national office and are available to dealers through a telephone hookup. Each month dealers get a catalog of available equipment that customers can thumb through. The catalog includes "equipment wanted" listings by farmers and dealers throughout the country.
"This system works great in other industries and it's working great in agricultural, too. It gives a local dealer a national inventory to work from and provides the farmer with a wider range of equipment to choose from," says Pete Dicarlo, founder of the National Search Center. The company makes a commission on sales of equipment and also charges a membership fee to member dealers. Farmers can call the search center directly to place "equipment wanted" listings.
