EquipNet Services
The Service
The EquipNet MarketPlace™ is the largest website in the world for buying and selling pre-owned, used and unused industrial assets. Categories include: processing, packaging, and warehouse equipment, laboratory instrumentation, and individual MRO parts for the pharmaceutical, chemical, biotech, and consumer goods industries.
All visitors may browse the MarketPlace™ and talk to salespeople about their equipment needs. Buyers must register before making their first purchase. At that time, they provide general information and are notified of the buyer's fee along with our terms and conditions. Then they can place an offer on the desired listing, which the seller can choose to accept or reject.
There are two types of selling scenarios: exclusive and non-exclusive. We prefer exclusive contracts where EquipNet has the sole right to market and sell the surplus equipment on the seller's behalf. Exclusive clients receive the following services: full-time Asset Management support; ongoing marketing email blasts; and premium placement on homepage with rotating banner ads and higher ranking in search results. Exclusive seller's listings are a top priority for sales reps because of higher commission incentive. If sellers don't want to sign an exclusive contract, they can still list equipment on the MarketPlace™ but they don't get any extra exposure. We are willing to work with non-exclusive sellers, but they don't get as much for their money.
Why choose EquipNet?
  • Trust the experts.
    EquipNet Equipment Specialists have extensive experience across many industries, ensuring that they will be able to accurately inspect, value, and list equipment.

  • Enjoy ease of use.
    Sellers can either: 1) self-post equipment on the MarketPlace™; 2) an EquipNet specialist will come to your facilities to inventory the equipment; and/or 3) sellers can send the equipment to our warehouse. For buyers, pricing is always visible and inventory is searchable by industry, category, and geography. The My EquipNet section of the site allows users to track their buying activity, set up notification agents, and manage their account information. My EquipNet provides easy access to a record of the items you're currently buying or selling and what items you've bought and/or sold in the past.

  • Meet all your asset management needs.
    EquipNet can manage a company's assets from soup to nuts. We not only buy and sell surplus, used and unused equipment online; EquipNet can also perform an inventory, appraise the value of your surplus equipment, sanitize old computers, manage redeployment of equipment from one facility to another, and handle logistics like warehousing, packing, and shipping. At the MarketPlace™, you can buy and/or sell all the equipment necessary to build or complete a production line and, if needed, find de-installation, rigging, and logistics services.

  • Sellers benefit from the largest, motivated sales force.
    EquipNet's sales force is by far the largest in the industry, with a team of full-time professionals making significant efforts on a daily basis to proactively market and sell your surplus assets. Since EquipNet doesn't make any money until your equipment sells, our interests are aligned with yours and we are very motivated to find a buyer for your assets.

  • Enjoy dedicated customer service.
    Exclusive sellers are assigned to an Asset Management Consultant to manage and market the listed equipment.

  • Sellers generate top dollar for your equipment and only pay for results
    MarketPlace™ is top-down selling vs. the bottom-up bidding that you receive in an auction atmosphere, ensuring that you get the highest possible price for your surplus equipment. Sellers don't have to part with any cash up front. Like real estate, the program is 100% self funded. All fees can be taken out of the proceeds.

  • Sellers target the right buyers.
    When a seller lists inventory on an exclusive basis, EquipNet includes those items in several marketing efforts, including: targeted email blasts, a position in the featured items section, and banner ads on industry-specific pages on MarketPlace™. Our website is optimized to ensure top placement on lists of online search results. We have an extensive database of contacts and advanced technology that allows for both general marketing as well as matching individual assets to specific targets.

  • Buyers have access to a large-quantity of high-quality equipment.
    The EquipNet MarketPlace™ has more equipment than all our competitors combined. Most of the leading pharmaceutical, chemical, biotech, and consumer goods corporations are represented exclusively by EquipNet, increasing the availability and high quality of the equipment you need. Top companies tend to maintain their equipment and keep records of how and for how long the equipment has been used. Since most of our equipment comes from these top companies and we have ongoing, contractual agreements with clients, ensuring a streamlined transaction for the buyer.

  • Use the same service for international equipment needs.
    EquipNet has offices in the continental United States, Canada, the Caribbean, the United Kingdom, India, and Indonesia.
