Manufacturers and fabrication plants routinely upgrade equipment. Sometimes a company needs to change locations or even close up shop for good. Whatever your reason for selling used industrial equipment, it helps to know how to do it. Asset recovery is an important part of running a business and affects your bottom line. Not only does surplus equipment take up space, but there is latent value in these machines to be recovered. You want to make sure you’re maximizing the value in surplus machines and equipment. This can allow you to reinvest that value into more profitable equipment and space usage. Of course, like anything else these days, you can sell your used machinery on the internet to unload it and recover its value. To that end, we’ve whipped together a quick and easy guide to selling used industrial machinery for your reference so that your business can offload used industrial equipment effectively and efficiently.
You’ve probably landed on this page because you already have used equipment you want to unload. However, it can be helpful to take a few things into consideration before you’re ever in that position.
Before you ever even get to the selling stage, sticking to a rigid maintenance routine is going to protect the value of your investment. Make sure you’re keeping your industrial equipment in great shape so that when the time comes to sell it, the unit fetches top dollar. This may be hindsight now, but a well-cared-for machine is a more valuable asset than equipment that has been neglected.
This step is going to be easier for you if you’re just selling one machine, but if you’ve got a whole plant full of equipment that you would like to offload, take an inventory of all of the used industrial machine you’re selling. Make a note of the condition of each unity while also gathering any documentation, accessories and parts you may have for them. This will come in handy when you approach a buyer and it can identify other equipment to offload.
