What is the best way to sell my semi truck, trailer or equipment? A question with many options depending on what you are looking to accomplish. If you are looking to sell super quick on a cash deal basis, then many dealers are "check writers" meaning they have the cash and can give you the money for it same day. The amount they offer usually isn't an attractive price, but it is quick money. Dealers aren't able to pay top dollar for equipment then turn around and sell it for an even higher price. So while dealers who can offer you cash today are good for a quick sale, it might not be at the price you were looking to get.
If you are the gambling type and like to take your chances while minimizing your liability, then auctions could be another great source to get your equipment sold. Auction sales do have a few drawbacks as well when it comes to selling your trucks, trailers or equipment. You have the cost of taking your commercial trucks and semi-trailer to the auction also the cost of picking it up if it doesn't sell and the fees they charge to get it sold. You could put a reserve price on it in hopes you at least get a minimum amount that you want for it, or if your reserve price is too high, then it might not be sold. You can roll the dice and let it go for whatever it goes for is always another option also. One good thing about an auction is it usually limits all of your liability in the sale and is why many large trucking companies choose to sell their equipment through an auction. If you sell through the right dealer who has an indemnification clause in their purchase agreement, then your liability would be limited that way as well. If it's a regular Joe dealer with basic as-is; where-is terms then you could still be held liable years later if a catastrophic wreck happens. In Texas, you are allowed to sue everyone in the chain of custody going back to the manufacturer and any owners in that chain. Texas likely isn't the only state that's allowed in so liability of the sale can be a significant factor too.
Selling your semi truck, trailer or equipment via one of the many online advertising sites is also another great option that many people use. This method usually cost a very minimal amount for a lot of exposure on a single unit or two being advertised. Benefits here can be having more control over the sale, whom you are selling it to and higher chances of getting the price you want. You'll need to take good pictures and list the specifications as accurately as possible so that your item shows up in search results as well as to make it as attractive to viewers as possible. The more clicks you can get on your listing the more engagement you'll likely receive. Higher user views will lead to more opportunity to sell your semi-trailer, truck or equipment. If you are good at talking to people, dealing with tire kickers, helping people through the finance process and a halfway decent sales person with the time to answer all the calls and emails, then this could be a good option for you. Liability on the sale and after the sale would squarely fall on you this way as well so accurately and honestly representing what you have is important and knowing what to put in your sales agreement is very important too! With any option, chances are it will take some time and effort on your part.
