History of Iron Lot, LLC
Iron Lot, LLC began selling heavy equipment in the fall of 2007 when Mike Campbell noticed an opportunity to help his wife’s father, Tim Coble of Piedmont Heavy Equipment, and her grandfather, P.J. Coble of Coble Equipment, market their equipment inventories on-line. Iron Lot soon began to broker equipment for other sellers and connect them to buyers overseas. Like many other small businesses, “The Great Recession” was tough on this small startup company. In 2011, the company transitioned from primarily brokering equipment to purchasing and selling it’s own inventory. In July of 2011, Iron Lot was able to move into the former location of Piedmont Heavy Equipment. This transition has equipped Iron Lot with the ability to house company-owned inventory and consignment equipment. In the Fall of 2013 we began to offer trench shoring equipment from Kundel Industries.
Beginning in the fall of 2007, Iron Lot traded used heavy equipment across state lines and international borders. We’ve reached American buyers and sellers from Coast to Coast. While Iron Lot is based in North Carolina, the majority of used equipment sales was from overseas customers and clients. We’ve continued the larger then local approach as our business grew into selling trench boxes and road plates. We are able to distribute our products at very affordable rates through our strategic partnerships.
Who We Serve
Our focus has transitioned from used equipment to new equipment related to underground safety. We currently serve the construction industries, governmental agencies, and equipment dealers.
Iron Lot, LLC is committed to being a business that strives to honor and serve the Lord Jesus Christ. In part, we hope to do this by seeking to provide an honest and fair representation of the equipment we sell. We also strive to keep our pricing as competive as possible. Further the safety equipment we sell is actually saving lives of the ones purchasing and using it. However, the most important issue for any person is a relationship with our Creator God. The heart of Christianity is the message of forgiveness of sin and hope of eternal life through faith in God’s Son, Jesus Christ. “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path”
About the Owner
Mike Campbell grew up in Fillmore, a small town in Southern California. While in the 5th grade, he started his first “job” sweeping floors and cleaning parts at the family business. He acquired an entrepreneurial spirit by observing his father, Roger Campbell, and grandfather, George Campbell, operate a successful auto repair business, Campbell’s Auto Repair.
Mike met his wife, Jenny, while on a missions trip to Albania during the Kosovo crisis in 1999. Jenny was serving in an orphanage there with a team from Cedarville University, and Mike was assisting the missionaries who ran the orphanage in their efforts to serve the refugees. Mike and Jenny now have four children and are active members of Grace Reformed Baptist Church in Mebane, NC.
Our trench boxes can be shipped economically thought the United States. Additionally, we have distribution points for some of our products like road plates located throughout the US.
