How to sell your Equipment, Trucks, & Vehicles
Selling your equipment and trucks can be a rather daunting task depending on what it is you are trying to sell. In this guide, we want to give you some tips to help you sell your equipment while achieving the maximum dollar value. The good news is there are many resources available that can be used and we hope this guide is one of them!
The way we see it, you have 3 options depending on how involved you want to be in the process and your timeframe. Each one of these options has its own advantages. Your specific needs will determine what option works best for you.
- Sell the equipment yourself. Selling the equipment yourself on platforms like FB Marketplace, Craigslist and or eBay can be very time consuming. This will require a very detailed description, high quality pictures, handling many questions from prospective buyers, showings and negotiating with buyers on selling price. Let’s not forget about the never-ending amount of tire kickers.
- Hire an auction professional to sell the equipment for you. This method will generate one of the highest returns with minimal work on your part. Using the auction method will require some additional time with 7-15 days of marketing and a selling commission subtracted from the selling price when your assets sell. With selling experts like Assiter Auctioneers, an auction will generate fair market value on all your items in one event and provide you with complete closure on the items you are selling. This process is simple, safe, and transparent with Assiter Auctioneers.
- Sell all assets to one buyer. If time is your most important goal, then selling all your assets to one buyer could be your best option. There are a few options to consider when making a bulk sale, which includes selling all to an equipment dealer in your area, selling to a similar business or accepting a buyout offer from Assiter Auctioneers.
