How to sell used industrial equipment? Many times the sale of your industrial equipment comes with the purchase of industrial machinery, which can be quite stressful.
There are different options when it comes to sell your industrial equipment, we tell you the most advantageous for you. However, it is very important that you have a previous knowledge of the second hand industrial market. Second hand machines devalue considerably, even if they work practically like a new one.
So, whether you are thinking of renewing your production line or want to give a second life to that machine that is no longer in use, this post may be of your interest.
Tips for selling industrial equipment and machinery online
As we mentioned at the beginning, there are different ways to sell your industrial equipment: privately, at auction or through a company specialized in the second-hand industrial market. It is not always easy to choose the best way to sell used industrial equipment. Since there are options, it is important to understand what happens in the market. That is why it is very useful to have someone you can trust to guide you and help you during the selling process.
If you are looking for comfort and security, it is best to delegate the whole process to a company specialized in the purchase and sale of second-hand industrial equipment. Here are some of its advantages:
- Flexibility in negotiations: For example, you can sign a contract under certain conditions.
- Flexibility in timing: You can negotiate the removal of equipment, possible visits from potential customers, etc. Also, you save a lot of time in the search for potential customers and in the management of the offers received.
- Reduced marketing and advertising costs compared to auction campaigns.
At 3Axis Group we accompany our clients during the process and manage the entire sale. This includes the search for potential customers, since we have a large base of buyers of second-hand equipment, as well as the disassembly and transport of the machine to the buyer’s facilities, etc.
If you are determined to sell your machine and do not have a lot of experience, we recommend that you keep in mind that there are no standard prices. There are many factors that influence the price:
- Maintenance of the machine.
- Size of the machine (X/Y/Z travel), speed (max rpm, tool change times).
- Country of manufacture (Germany, Japan, China, Taiwan).
- Extra equipment (coolant pressure, automatic tool changer, chip conveyor, robotic part loader, bar feeder, etc.).
Properly Photograph Equipment
To get attention when selling industrial equipment, you need to take the right pictures. As we would say a picture is worth a thousand words – but a film clip, a million! In other words, it is a bonus if you can make a video of the operation of the machine, axis movement, maximum spindle speed, tool change, etc.
Provide as much information as possible
Generally, customers are looking for a simple and fast process. The more information you provide for them at the beginning of the process, the more likely they are to purchase your equipment.
Choose the best-selling method for you
You have to take into account the time frame you have available, your level of involvement, the cost of that method of sale and the return on your equipment. This process at times can be extremely difficult and challenging to manage, so if you need a reliable partner, you can contact us and we will be happy to help you in the management of your sale or ask us all the questions you have.
