How to price and sell heavy equipment and trucks

Easy equipment valuation tools from Ritchie Bros.

If you own heavy equipment, at some point in time you might consider selling it for a variety of reasons – upgrading, need for a different machine, reinvesting the proceeds in your business, or retiring. Whatever the reason, one of the first things you’ll want to figure out is the value of the machine in the current market, how much it’s in demand, and where.

In the “old days”, the process of determining market value relied heavily on your own experience and connections with other equipment owners, dealers and brokers, as well as hours spent poring over “for sale” ads for similar machines. Luckily today, there’s a wealth of data and tools available online, making it more accessible to get an understanding of the value of your gear.
