Dehumidifier

I Just got a sweet deal at an auction for 18 Dehumidifiers New in the box .I was wondering if any of you guys hit up Auctions for materials at a cut rate price.

Yes, I have been hitting auctions hard, tools,ladders, trailers, and a few pieces of equipment. It all might not be pretty, but it's cheaper than new and works!

I go to auctions all the time.
Contractor of 27 years sold everything and left for the Dakota oil fields.
Plumbing and heating guy went belly up and sold off air compressors, dump trailer, gennies, pipe cutters, etc.
Roofing and siding company sold out and had vehicles, brakes, roofing guns, inventory, etc.
I rarely buy anything new anymore, and I try not to buy anything that I can't resell for similar money down the road. Auctions aren't for everyone, but there can be deals.

Hope they are not recalled!
I enjoy auctions, especially online!! It has been a buyers market lately around here.

re

When I buy dehumidifiers I generally buy them 2 pallets at a time. It sucks to sit on $4k worth of inventory but I get them delivered to my house for about $80/each (including delivery). They are usually LG which I think are crap, but as long as it lasts a year or 2 it's not my problem.

Dehumidifiers that you are putting into bank owned properties should serve the same purpose as those MFS bargain door locks your installing- A temporary measure to protect the home until it transfers into new ownership. They don't have to be industrial. When installing even the lower tier units for a national, you will rarely clear more than if you billed for a trip charge and did nothing.

True, To get a good deal and actually make a buck you gotta buy in bulk.I guess tha is one of the keys in this business
