Book value on used equipment?
Is there a website that has book values on used equipment?
I tried Google with no luck.
I am going to sell my JD CT322, JCB 1CX & JCB 2CX and I have a buddy interest in two of the machines, but asking prices are all over the map.
gajim, I used the green book years ago, we used to get new ones every year, some dealers may also give you a price if you know your sales man also.
Try equipmentwatch.com this is the book source we used to price used equipment, there is more out on the web but this was what we went by.
MachineryTrader.com is what I use all the time.
There is no such thing as a blue book or book value in heavy equipment.
Thanks for the tips guys.
They want $1,750 for the online equipemt value guide.
I am surprised KBB or Black Book doesn't have a guide. I guess I'm SOL.
No one can make a guide because there are far too few individual models, too many different options and builds and far too many individual points of condition that have to be assessed before a value can be determined. Even if you could put all that together at some point in time, the next auction might change everything about your subject.
You can get a general idea by doing a search in MachineryTrader.com for your year, make and model of machine. Look up the auctions first and then the machines being offered for sale. There is a function page in there that will put that info on one page and give you the averages. You can then use your own judgement about where your machine fits within the high, low and average of that marketplace.
There is a place I use to check all the prices of my used equipment.
The company is called Expert Heavy Equipment Inc. (www.experthe.com) and if you call them they will price your equipment for free. Like a Kelly blue book for heavy equipment.
They'll show you where they got all their information and make sure you understand how they priced it. It's a really good service. I'd recommend it to anybody. Helped me from getting screwed over.
Finley what's your association with Experthe.com and be honest..
