Does anyone have a recommendation of an eBay seller of used survey equipment that would sell a lot on consignment for me?  It's (hopefully) about $80k of used equipment from a company we bought.  I have no interest in trying to sell it piecemeal myself.  TIA

What do you have? Maybe make a few bundles, and try to sell them on here.

Or there is this guy named Rick he owns a pawn shop in Las Vegas.

Are you are relatively close to Cass County, Texas.

It would take making an inventory of goods and many pictures of the items just to get started and grouping them into blocks or going for an outright lot of goods.

Depending upon the age and variety of the collection, one lot of goods may not bring much attention.

Pickup, delivery and shipping will need to be considered also.

Make a list of items and post here to begin the process.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news....

If it’s 80k worth of equipment expect to sell it for 40k to the resller. If you try to sell it on eBay they will rob you for 10%.

How is charging you to expose you to millions of potential customers robbery?

Surveyors could take a lesson. Charge by value and don't apologize for making money...

Exposure is subjective... there aren’t millions of buyers when it comes to used surveying gear. 10% is steep IMO.
