Used is profitable

Trading used machinery is for most machinery dealers not the core business. However, companies such as Zeppelin-CAT make a reasonable profit out of it. The average margin in used machinery trading can easily settle between 10 to 15%. If it would not be profitable most dealers would source it out. Compared to new machine sales the profits are even better.

The keys to success

The selling price for a used excavator or loader is more or less fix and set by the market. It means the key for profit lies in correct purchase or trade-in pricing. To calculate the appropriate price it is essentially to get reliable info about the machine condition.

Training for Technicians and Sales

In daily business it is impossible to send a mechanic to each machine a dealer might have to trade in. Therefore, it does make sense having the Used Sales Staff and the New Machinery Sales people trained how to inspect a used machine in a certain time with good results.
