What makes Commercial Appliance Removal DifficultClosing up a business is a tough process. It’s not only emotional, but there are many logistical challenges. For example, the conundrum of what to do with retail display cases. Sure, they might be in good condition. But, only another business could really use them. And, that in itself is problematic. While you might find a taker, what you’ll get for them versus what you paid is unsettling.
…the numbers aren’t in the favor of small-business owners, the U.S. Small Business Administration reported that an estimated 552,600 new companies opened for business in 2009, while 660,900 businesses closed up shop. Things look even worse if you’re in the food service sector where the National Restaurant Association says 30 percent of new restaurants fail in the first year, with another 30 percent failing within the next two years. —Entrepreneur.comThe same holds true for other commercial items. Even if you aren’t closing up shop for good and replacing those old commercial appliances with new ones, you’ll still have to deal with the old units. Those machines aren’t exactly in high demand but they aren’t completely devoid of value.
Commercial Appliance Removal OptionsOf course, the best way to go about commercial appliance removal is to call in a junk hauling service. This way, you save yourself the work and agony of dealing with them. This is the best option for appliances that have seen better days. But, there are other things you can do. Here are some suggestions for commercial appliance disposal:
- Sell the appliances yourself. If you know some people in the same business, it’s worth a shot to give them a ring. Perhaps you can unload them and get a little money back. At the very least, they might take those machines off your hands.
- Go through a third-party auction. Another option is to list your commercial appliances with a third-party auction service. These companies sell commercial equipment (usually in bulk or bundles) and they’ll deal with the details.
- Sell them through a business broker. Of course, if you are just selling the business — for whatever reason — you might consider bringing in a business broker. These individuals pair business owners with business buyers or an investor group. Additionally, they usually have an impressive book of contacts. So, this is another option for getting rid of those commercial appliances with little to no effort on your part.
