Almost every item has a depreciating value and finally that item becomes obsolete and ceases to function. Same is the case of heavy equipments. Machines used in construction or in mining sites are quite expensive and after having used them for few years, you may find a newer model with certain changes in the technology being launched which you tend to purchase. That doesn’t mean the end of the existing machine. It is simply not the end of the story for the old one but perhaps it only suggests that it’s time for it to gear up for something new.
Here we would be speaking about what can one do with a used bulldozer. Would selling be the right option or simply giving it on rent would be appropriate. Let’s try to analyse what makes more sense for a person having used a bulldozer for the last few years.
Selling off the machine:- If you have used the bulldozer for 3-4 years and if you are of the opinion to sell off the old iron and buy an upgraded model, selling off the bulldozer would make more sense. With the help of the money you get after selling the old machine and adding few extra bucks will help you get the new one. In order to sell the used bulldozer, you can post a classified on a local newspaper and give away your contact details. A bulldozer which is being used for 4 years can still fetch you a good price and hence selling the machine should turn out to be a good option.
You can also list the item on an online selling site. There’s a new trend wherein people are prone to buy things online rather than visiting a store and buy the stuff. Though buying a used bulldozer may not sound same as buying apparels from an online store, still it has its own importance which is clearly reflecting with the growing popularity of online selling portals. People do make their way by registering themselves in such online selling sites and are quite content after buying heavy equipments from there. You also make use of this opportunity and can list the bulldozer on the site. Giving proper description of the item will make it easier for the buyer to understand the position of the machine and help them to judge if they should be going ahead with the deal.
Putting it on rent:- To a larger population, renting the machine would make more sense. However, that depends on the situation that makes them take the decision. For instance, you’re certain that you would not need your bulldozer for the next few months, it’d be better to give the machine on rent. You can earn some money as monthly rentals and once the contract is over, you can take it back. A word of caution would be to communicate very clearly about the maintenance and servicing part to the taker. Or else, they might not take proper care of the dozer and it may wear it sooner than expected.
