In recent years, a large number of second-hand machinery has been idle, making the old machinery market extremely hot. Why? Because the second-hand machinery has an obvious price advantage.
However, the trading in second-hand amphibious excavator is very complex, and those who don’t know the business are liable to lose. So how can you make your old amphibious excavator sell for a good price?

“Golden Nine and Silver Ten” is the golden sales period in the machinery market. The second-hand amphibious excavator market also has a golden sales period.Anyone with a connection to construction machinery knows that second-hand amphibious excavator sales are at their peak between November to May of the following year, that people in the industry often say that they can be sold if they are in stock.
Most of them know this, but they may not be able to grasp it well. Especially before the Spring Festival, many users want to sell the equipment because of the shortage of funds for the New Year, but the price before the Spring Festival is not as high as the price after the Spring Festival, the average price is at least 5% higher; especially do not sell excavators during the period from mid-May to November.

2.Second, the time to buy a excavator is very important
This is a small detail, and many sellers may not care about it, but the editor wants to tell you that you must pay attention to the time of the test drive; many sellers like to let customers see the excavator in the morning. In fact, this point is not a good idea. More than 80% of excavator buyers will not buy it.
The users who watch the excavator between 2:00-3:30 in the afternoon have the greatest chance of making a deal. This part of users does not have too long to test the excavator. When there is no major problem with the excavator as a whole, ordinary customers consider payment and logistics; and this time period can reflect the performance of the amphibious excavator.

Many sellers will not consider this, because they feel that buyers can watch the excavator at will! In fact, you can judge the user’s mood to sell the excavator from the place where the excavator is sold; for example, if the excavator is sold in a major repair shop, then the excavator must have a big problem, and the buyer’s vigilance is particularly high.
If there is no excavator working in the parking lot, it will feel that you are short of money; and the price will be lower; different locations give buyers different feelings, so,the best place to sell an amphibious excavator is on a construction site. Even if the amphibious excavator is on the construction site without work, the price can go up and buyers will want to buy it more; That’s why so many excavators was put on construction sites.
