Used Equipment Guide, Inc. is a privately held company that operates UsedEquipmentGuide.com, the world's largest heavy truck and equipment search engine. The company crawls and indexes over 3 million listings from over 3,5000 websites including on-highway trucks, heavy equipment, agricultural equipment, cranes, lift trucks, industrial engines, and power generators.
The company was founded by Jeremy Balog in Asheville, North Carolina in 2015. Used Equipment Guide was incubated as a subsidiary of dieseljobs.com, the largest niche job board for heavy trucks and equipment, which was also founded by Balog. Used Equipment Guide spent 2 years in development before being launched and available to the public in January 2017. In late 2015, Used Equipment Guide was one of 22 semi-finalists for the competitive NC IDEA Fund grant with only a business plan.
In early 2017, the company moved its main office from Asheville, North Carolina to Chattanooga, Tennessee. The company still maintains a satellite office in Asheville. In mid-2017, David Lilly, the cofounder of Autotrader.com joined the company as its Chief Operating Officer. In 2018, the company raised a $3 million seed round led by HOLT Ventures.
