Default Where do you sell your surplus electrical gear?

We've got:

1 600HP 480v AB softstart in an enclosure, new

1 800 amp 480v Asco 3 pole Nema 1 transfer switch, new old stock

2 100 amp 240v Asco 2 pole Nema 1 transfer switches, new old stock

2 30kva Sentron power centers, new old stock

Does anyone know who would be interested in this? I tried one of breaker/gear surplus dealers we buy from, they weren't interested. Tried another one they recommended, and they never even called me back.

Ideas?

I'm not really interested in Craigslist/Ebay for the pain in the @ss factor.

I'm about ready to dump some of it at the scrapyard, if I have too.

We have a place here in Portland that will Buy old gear, transformers and breakers... They give crap for it and most of the time(unless they really want it) won’t come and get it. I did an entire update on all the gear on one of my accounts last year. I sold them all the switchgear and transformers (about 12 between 75-150kva).. brand new the switch gear alone was probably worth $25k gear alone. Most was less than 15yrs old... moral of the story, they came and got it, gave me $3k and we all had a great day. I don’t expect to get much ever, they have to test and refurbish so it works out for everyone. Free money is free money.

Lesson.

If you buy something and don't use it.

Return it.

While you can.

This gear was purchased by others before I took a position in management and now am able to do something about it.


I completely agree with what you said though.
