Is this your first time buying heavy equipment or machinery at auction? Always remember these quick tips to get the most out of your potential sale.
- Look for makes and models that have popular brand names. If you have to add or remove any parts, there may be a better chance of finding them.
- Try to find out the year that the item was made. If the machine is fairly new, it may still be under factory warranty which will save you money in the long run.
- Take a look at the engine, listen for weird noises, and take note of leaking fluids and any other warning signs. These could all be signs of an issue with the item.
- Pay attention to the item’s service life. Was it used regularly or does it look fairly new? It also never hurts to ask to see the machine in action!
