So, what does the business owner do with their surplus machinery? Where can you unload your used press brakes to make room for new machines? Whatever your reason for selling press brakes, it helps to know how to do it. Asset recovery can have a tremendous effect on your bottom line. Not only do surplus press brakes take up space, but there is latent value in these machines to be recovered. In order to maximize the value in surplus press brakes and other fabrication equipment, you have to know how to sell them. Then you can reinvest that value into more profitable equipment and space usage. Of course, like anything else these days, you can sell your used press brakes on the internet to unload them and recover their value. So, Kempler Industries has whipped together a quick and easy guide to selling press brakes for your reference so that your business can offload your surplus effectively and efficiently.

Before You Sell Surplus Press Brakes

You’ve probably landed on this page because you already have surplus press brakes you want to unload and you want to know how to find a buyer. However, it can be helpful to take a few things into consideration before you’re ever in that position.

Press Brake Maintenance

Before you ever even get to the selling stage, sticking to a rigid maintenance routine is going to protect the value of your press brake. Whether you have CNC press brakes, mechanical press brakes or hydraulic press brakes, it doesn’t matter. A great maintenance regimen ensures top dollar when you go to sell it.  To start, always keep your machines clean and tidy. Ensure the die table is clear of dirt and oil weekly at the very least. Make sure you’re changing your oil and filters as frequently as the manufacturer suggests. Keep an eye on all electrical connections and make sure you’re greasing your press brake as often as is recommended by the manufacturer. Make it a routine to take a closer look at all parts of the machine and make adjustments and repairs as needed. If you take the time to care for your investment now, you’ll have a more valuable machine to unload when it’s time to sell it.

Take Inventory of Your Surplus Press Brakes

Skip this step if you’re just selling one press brake, but if you’ve got several press brakes that you would like to offload, take an inventory of all of the used machines you’re selling. Make a note of the condition of each unit while also gathering any documentation, accessories and parts you may have for them. This will come in handy when you approach a buyer and you may identify other equipment to offload at the same time.

Research The Going Rate For Your Press Brake

It’s important to understand the press brake you’ve got to sell so you can get a good idea of the demand for it. In some cases, you may find that your surplus press brake is obsolete. This can be a daunting undertaking, especially if you’re selling numerous press brakes from different manufacturers. It’s a time-consuming job to find out what your press brakes are worth and who may need them. That’s why many used press brake sellers opt into using an experienced used press brake dealer like Kempler Industries. With over five decades of experience selling used industrial equipment, Kempler Industries understands the business of unloading surplus press brakes. From the get-go, they’ll find the value in your machine, allowing you to carry on with what’s important: your business.

Carry Out Repairs On Your Used Press Brakes

If you have the resources in-house to repair any broken machinery, you should take advantage of that to increase the value you can get from your used industrial equipment. It always helps the selling process to have your machines in good working order. As such, even if you have to bring in an outside repairman to get your machine into perfect working order, we recommend doing that to ensure you find a buyer for your surplus press brake.

Who Buys Used Press Brakes?

There are potential buyers of used press brakes everywhere, but finding them can be the tricky part. Of course, you can go the route of listing the machinery you’re selling yourself utilizing services like Facebook Marketplace, Craigslist and more but it’s far easier and less time-consuming to sell your surplus press brakes to a trusted used equipment dealer. You get the benefit of their knowledge and expertise when it comes to the value and pricing of your used press brakes, but you’ll also get your used machinery out in front of their vast customer list. The longer the used equipment dealer has been in business, the bigger their buyer base is, which means you’ll have increased success selling your surplus press brakes.

How to sell used press brakes

There are several different options when it comes to selling your surplus press brakes. First, you can sell them yourself, which means cleaning your machines up, taking photos, listing your press brakes for sale, fielding calls and looky-loos and arranging for transportation yourself. This can be a lot of time-consuming work for someone running a fabrication plant, so the alternatives are often the best route to take. They include auction, liquidation and consignment.

Auction your surplus press brakes

Often the best choice for those unloading multiple press brakes at once, auctions enable the seller to put a time limit on the sale and ensures the best price in that time frame. This is a great choice for those who need to get rid of their press brake inventory fast. Most used press brake auctions are conducted online which makes it even easier for the seller.
