Do you have an old chipper that you no longer need because you’re upgrading to a newer model or you no longer live in a location with a garden that requires regular attention? Perhaps you are wondering whether you can advertise your chipper for sale in the hopes that someone who can still make use of it will make an offer that you are happy to accept. Fortunately, it is more than possible to do this, offloading your old equipment and giving you a profit.
Step 1: Sit down and make a list of any special features or functions that your chipper has. Is it able to chip or shred wood using hardened steel blades and knives, for example, or is it able to vacuum up any debris that is left?
Step 2: Take a couple of photographs of your chipper and upload them to your computer so that you can use them in advertisements. You should also take photos of any attachments that will be going with it.
Step 3: Post an image of your chipper for sale on social media platforms that you belong to, like Facebook, so that your friends can see that you’re getting rid of it; they may know someone who is interested.
Step 4: Place an advertisement in the classifieds section of your local newspaper (with or without a photograph). Make sure that you list the condition of the equipment, as well as any other important information.
Step 5: Print out some flyers about your chipper and hang them on community boards in your local area. These can be found in the supermarket, laundromat and even in fish and chip or pizza stores.
Make sure that you tell everyone you know that you have a chipper for sale, as word will eventually spread and you are sure to come across someone who is interested in making an offer. If people want to come and look at the equipment make sure that you agree, as they just want to make sure that the price you are asking is appropriate for the condition. And always operate according to the notion of first in best dressed.
