Another effective and practical method of selling mining equipment is to contract the equipment brokers, what is popularly referred to as consignment in the heavy equipment circles.

In most cases the dealer would either be the company from which the person bought the equipment in the first place, or the person who does the mine equipment maintenance. The way the process works is that the Consignee (broker) and they would sign off an agreement concerning the agency terms. The Consignee goes around looking for potential buyers. In the event that a successful buyer is found the Consignee collects that payment and submits it to the Consignor less the commission amount. Under such an arrangement everybody wins.

Another interesting method that has been used for a long time in the disposing of organization’s assets and equipment is through the use of auctions. This would involve selling of the heavy equipment through public auctions. Often the auction house would appraise the value of the assets and provide sellers with a proposal. Often the proposal is based on the value of the equipment as is. Therefore, if a person hopes to get a higher valuation they should consider carrying out mining equipment repair before putting the equipment on offer.
