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.)

$20k used and require commercial shipping

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...
