    best way to sell pile of new HVAC parts???

    about a year ago I bought out a friends hvac inventory because he was retiring and wasnt having any luck selling the company. the original plan was to eventually start my own small company. now that plan has changed and i'm not going to be a stressed out over worked business owner. where and how is the best way to go about selling all this stuff? i'm talking capacitors, contactors, relays, Blower motors, carrier RTU control boards, Vision pro 8000's etc etc.. all this stuff is new and unused but I don't want to list each thing separately on Ebay or craigslist
    you will attract more flies with honey than with vinegar, but you can attract the most with a dead cat

    Some have bundled a bunch of stuff and sold on EBay. As long as it doesn't weigh much because of shipping.
    I listed some stuff on Craig's List w/o a bite. But that doesn't mean you won't.
    There are some draw backs and the largest is no warranty. W/O a warranty there is little attraction for used anything. Some might risk it, I wouldn't except for cheap stuff.
    Give me a relay with big enough contacts, and I'll run the world!

    You can be anything you want......As long as you don't suck at it.

    If a person wants to create a machine that will be more likely to fail...Make it complicated.

    Have an open HVAC garage sale at home or in your shop if you still have one. Call other HVAC dudes in your area (surely you know some). Dont get greedy and price the stuff to sell. Best way to do it IMO.

    I saw your reply to another person who had parts for sale. I have several parts from my parts room clean out. Please let me know if you are still looking for old HVAC parts

    Thank you,
