For the last few years I've used Craigslist on occasion. When I had a few minutes, I would scan through my local listings and try to find anything that I could use at the time. Lately, I've been trying to see if there is a way this concept could benefit people with used recycling equipment.
In other words, how can a commercial recycling equipment distributor, like Container Essentials, help you in buying or selling your used equipment? Specifically:
- Should it function like Craigslist, where the buyer contacts the seller directly?
- Would a mobile application work more effectively than a website, or vice versa?
- Is it important to have a third party to facilitate the transactions, more like eBay, or should the buyers and sellers be able to sort out everything else themselves?
- How important is the design? The aesthetic?
In a broader sense, would something like this be helpful at all? Is there a huge need for help when it comes to buying or selling used recycling equipment? Contact us today or share your thoughts in the comments below.
