Find Local Buyers To Save On Shipping

When it comes to large copiers and printers, shipping costs can greatly reduce the offer you will receive depending on where you will need to ship your machine. Local equipment buyers will be able to outbid out of state buyers due to savings from shipping.

We recommend testing your luck on your local classified listing sites. Most of these platforms allow you to list an ad for free and offer the chance to show your ad to buyers in your area. Check to see if your area has its own local classified sites.

You can also try some popular classified ad sites that we have listed out below:

Craigslist will be a good first option to list your used equipment because of their popularity and traffic.

As one of the largest classified sites, listing your old copier or printer in your city should put you on the radar of local buyers. You may even find local copier dealers who regularly browse the site.

We recommend posting your listing under the correct category in order to maximize relevancy when buyers are looking at your listing. You can try using the For Sale —> Electronics section.

When listing your equipment, be sure to include the brand, model number, and shipping preferences.

Presentation is key! You may also want to attach additional information such as usage information, service history, location, additional parts and meter number. Be sure to also include images. Image increase visibility of your ad and makes your listing look more appealing. Although pictures are not necessary, know that people buy with their eyes online. Including pictures will definitely help you in your sale. Better photos mean better offers.


Another classified platform worth looking into is eBay classified postings.

Many sellers do not realize that eBay has a classified section, but the traffic that eBay sees is comparable to craigslist. Selling your equipment here will give you extra visibility in your local area over your competitors.

The platform is intuitive, like Criagslist, but uses eBay’s formatting. You can also post free ads here if you are a local seller of used printers and office equipment.

Oodle is another classified ads site like Craigslist where buyers connect with sellers of a wide range of products, including used office equipment.

The site works by accumulating listings from sites such as eBay, Facebook Local Marketplace, Ad Land Pro, and other classified sites.

By listing your machine here, you will once again be shown to local buyers who are interested in your machine.

Instead of continuing to list classified ad sites, as popularity varies by location, we will include a few other options you may look into here:

Selling second hand production copiers is not a straight forward process.

There’s not great amount of online resources covering used copiers and there is little to no guidance on copier valuations.

This is because secondhand copiers prices fluctuate due to supply and demand.

Thus, it is difficult to find up to date information on your used Canon Copiers or any other model.

Furthermore, many individuals may buy these machines, and act as middlemen to sell to exporters like Kingnote Copiers.

Removal Company Are Usually Too Pricey

If you are not having any luck in selling your machine, you will need to contact a removal company to get them to take the equipment. They can deal with the removal of a broken or off-lease copiers.

However, removal fees can range depending on whether the used copier is being recycled or disposed.

Check your local waste removal company and they may charge you a per pound rate for removal (For example, $1 / lbs). For a very large machine, this can get pricey!
