Have something to sell? There are so many ways to get rid of what you don’t want, and buy what you do want: Facebook Marketplace, eBay, Craigslist….the list goes on and on. If your hospital, clinic, practice or healthcare facility is ready to get rid of medical imaging equipment like CT Scanners and MRIs, where is the best place to sell it?
A Close Look At Auction Sites
If you’ve got the time, patience and a flexible timeframe for removing your medical imaging equipment from your facility, an auction site might be right for you. You’ll also need to provide accurate and complete information about the system you are selling, which isn’t as easy as it sounds. However, it is your responsibility.
It’s important to use an auction site that guarantees the financial legitimacy of their bidders. There are also lots of details you’ll have to deal with. Is the winning bidder willing to pay in advance? Are they qualified to move the equipment? Do they have the proper insurance?
Selling On a Platform
Not unlike selling on an auction site, with a platform, you’ll have to vet your buyer carefully. Who are they? Do they have sufficient funds? Do they have floor protection, dollies and the right insurance for moving the system safely?
What About A Trade-In?
Trade-ins are the easiest way to liquidate your current medical imaging equipment. The OEM will coordinate the removal of one system and installation of the new one—which means fewer hassles and headaches for you. Granted, you could probably get more for your old system if you sold it yourself, but the convenience is undeniable.
Resellers Are A Great Option
Probably the most popular way to sell your medical imaging equipment is through a reseller like Atlantis Worldwide. Most people don’t want to manage the risk of selling, delivering, installing and possibly even refurbishing an imaging system. That said, it’s important to choose the right broker for your medical imaging equipment. Never work with a broker who isn’t willing to outlay their own money. You should also get a full deposit early—usually within 24 hours of acceptance. Also, make sure you inspect your system in advance, so there aren’t any surprises for either party. Another great thing about working with an established reseller is that you’ll get a higher level of customer service. They’ll also understand how to price your system, remove it from your place of business and transport it safely.
