We would prefer to sell this over PBnation -- I want to leave as much profit in these items as possible for the buyer. Seperating these items out and reselling them over Ebay or something like that would be a large profit maker for someone. Repairing markers is another avenue. Customizing AM assemblies another.
If I can sell these lots over the forums here, then I think things will be best for everyone involved -- including all AM owners.
To answer the most frequent question so far (and something I should have clarified earlier) each individual post is a Lot -- the numbers indicate the box number that the parts are in. We only have 5 lots represented here -- and I hope to sell them all to the same place if possible as there are a lot of advantages to the person buying them if they are kept together.
For those looking for an idea of what to offer on the lots -- the full package had an original retail value of about $200,000. A 90% discounted price would go for $20,000. If you could sell these at a 70% discount you could sell them for $60,000 total.
We have found that we were able to get 60-70% value out of items (so a 30-40% discount) while we were still selling them over this last fall. Somebody that is enterprising and willing to work may be able to get 50% out of the lots original value by doing some finishing work on some of the parts. -- that is $100,000.
So we naturally think that this is a good buy for someone. Now why would we be wanting to sell as a lot rather than break it up and make that $100,000ourselves? Well, think in terms of taxes. We are wanting to get rid of the entirety of our remaining inventory in order to avoid any and all taxes on the remaining components. so selling it at a deep discount is favorable to us.
And for those looking for a timeframe -- how about April 15th...
For those of you that are interested in getting individual components -- your best bet at this time is to find someone to buy the lots and split them out. Feel free to advertise this post anywhere that you want. I am not putting it in multiple places only because I want to have a central place that everyone can find my responses. So please feel free to post links to this page to any other forums, boards, websites, stores, etc that you are regular members of.
