TimberBuyer was created by experienced hardwood lumbermen that saw the need to help both loggers and mills market and source logs. Loggers' expertise lies in the woods. Ours lies in getting the most out of what you produce. With each timber for listing that you create, we contact local mills and buyers in order to create competition for your products, thereby increasing what your logs sell for. By using our Auction Component, you no longer have to accept only one bid per buyer.
The platform exists to create exposure so that loggers and mills looking to sell maximize the value of their logs. When a listing is created, you not only get the benefit of auctioning the logs to the highest bidder but TimberBuyer markets your listing to potential buyers to increase competition. More competition equates to more value for your work and your listing.
Loggers, log yards and lumber mills make a listing
List logs on the auction platform with the approximate volume, species mix, and location. Your listing is then viewed by local mills (or in the case of veneer/export logs, globally)!
TimberBuyer aggressively markets your listing
Potential buyers contact the seller to set up viewing appointments, confirm the product mix, quality, determine their value, and discuss contracts/logistics/etc.
Potential buyers set up an account so they can purchase
Once the auction is complete, the winning bidder pays the seller and coordinates picking up the logs. All payments (aside from buyer's premiums) are paid directly to the seller!
