Preparing your machine will most certainly be worth your time and money, as it will help you sell it faster and often for more money. If you’re looking to sell farm machinery, here’s our handy guide to help you prepare it before you do so...
To begin, make sure your machine is clean. Give it a wash and polish, it will look better in pictures and therefore be more attractive to people interested in buying it. Check your machine works, inspect everything. If it isn't in great condition, just be honest about what is wrong in your advert. If you spot any problems which you can get fixed, sort them out. A ‘healthy’ piece of equipment will be much more appealing and any problems a buyer spots on viewing could provide them with an opportunity to haggle you down on price. Last but not least, ensure you have any paperwork which relates to your machine. Be honest with the machine’s history, it will give the buyer confidence in you as a seller.
