Selling Restaurant Equipment on Your Own

Selling restaurant equipment on your own is really just a two step process (bring it home or to storage, and sell it.)

If you have the time and the energy, you can rent a trailer and pay some guys to move your equipment to your garage or a rented storage unit.

Once you get your equipment where it will be stored, the next step is to advertise it for sale. Most people begin this process on their local Craigslist, and if they don’t get any calls they search for other avenues. We know because we sell restaurant equipment too. After Craigslist, Backpage is the classified site with the second most web traffic. Some people try to sell their equipment on Facebook through their city’s Swap Sites.

Patience is the key when selling used restaurant equipment. There are always two or three companies selling restaurant equipment in a given city, and these companies usually offer warranties. Many of them will even hook the equipment up and show the customer it’s working. If you are selling from home or storage, you won’t be able to show them the equipment’s working or offer a warranty. The inability to see it working or obtain a warranty creates skepticism in your potential buyers. This type of transaction will feel more risky, and they’ll want to be compensated for the risk. What I’m getting at is that the pool of restaurant equipment buyers is a small pool, and the pool of people who will spend thousands of dollars on stuff they can’t see working is an even smaller pool, so the key is patience.
