With the unfortunate demise of some local companies, there is a positive for companies in need of office equipment. There have been several large companies and small companies that have closed there doors due to the recession. These companies need to sell equipment that is no longer needed or because they need to raise capital quickly. Sometimes the company will sell it themselves, or sometimes they will use a professional liquidation company to help them sell the assets.
You can bargain shop for equipment by looking at local classified ads, Craig’s list, EBay and liquidation sales. Try to research prices before you shop. Professional liquidator are in the business to make a profit, so you need to be aware of that when you shop. Also, keep in mind that electronics are not always the best items to buy used since you usually won’t have a usage history or a warranty.
