|What is the equivalent of Ebay for large items?|
Where does one list large industrial equipment for sale?

We have a few large machines we would like to sell online, but where would be a good place to list them?
These are industrial machines (plasma cutter, cnc router, etc) that are around $20k used and require commercial shipping.
I don't think we would want to sell outside of the USA, so we are only looking for a US domestic market listing.
Is Ebay the best place?
Or is there another site that caters to the larger stuff like this?

What's the online equivalent of a classified ad in a trade publication? That's where I would look. That is: not sites focused on selling, but sites whose users know-- and might want to buy --the product.
Assuming, ahem, that you acquired the products through ordinary channels and they didn't fall off a truck, you may already know some of the sites. (Don't look at me: I have no idea what a plasma cutter is, nor even that there exists a form of plasma that can be cut. Or, uhm, that can do the cutting.)

The price and shipping terms are no reason they couldn't be sold on eBay. (And it shouldn't cost you anything if they don't sell).
A "Precision Plasma / C&CNC BladeRunner 4 x 8 Plasma Table" sold on eBay today for just under $10k.
There are other (plasma cutters and related equipment) listed for up to $150k -- many require freight shipping.

I'll save you the bother. Call it an even £20, and you've got a deal.

we've successfully sold a few Trumph Lasers and a couple brake press's, rotational molding equipment, etc on ebay over the last couple years. We've even purchased a couple there.
There's no reason you can't list your equipment there...
You have to work out shipping, and perhaps tear-down and set-up but it's do-able...

Looks like Ebay is the place we will be using!
