- How to Sell Equipment
There are several effective approaches to using the Used Equipment Network
to sell your surplus machinery. The most commonly-used and often the fastest
method is to enter a "for-sale" listing into the system. This will
require you to log on so we have your contact information. When you enter
a for-sale listing, the UEN system will automatically email it overnight
to all professional used equipment dealers who handle that type of equipment.
Often you will get a call or email the next day from a dealer interested in
buying your equipment. With multiple offers you can pick the best price
and terms. Note that end-user for-sale listings are available only to
dealers so you will not see your listing if you search the for-sale items
after entering yours. You can, of course, always see your own listings
by clicking the "See my listings" link at the top right of
the screen after you log on.
Another approach is to find a dealer who is selling a similar piece of equipment
and contact him directly. Dealers often specialize in certain types of
equipment and a dealer who frequently sells items similar to yours is most
likely to want to offer you a good price for yours. For large and heavy
equipment that is expensive to ship, it's likely you will get the best
price if a dealer can sell it and have it shipped directly to the new
owner without having to bring it into his inventory first.
