Selling equipment

Postby Klein » Fri Mar 10, 2017 12:13 pm

I'm not sure if I'm posting this in the right area or not.

Have any of you guys, and gals sold distilling equipment?

I'm not talking about making equipment to sell, but when you have upgraded and have no use for it anymore.

I'm in Ontario (Canada) and was thinking of using kijiji or amazon.

Not sure if it's a smart idea or not and would like to know what your experience is.

We have a classified section on the forum for one time sales (not intended as a business for members). If you post it in classified it won't appear until a mod or administrator approves the post. It is then locked and if members are interested everything is done through PM's.

I had not thought of selling it to another member.
I was mainly thinking of amazon or kijiji, but was not sure if that was asking for trouble.

I don't think I would sell online although I see a lot of stills for sale on eBay.

If anything I would list it as home brew equipment. Anyone in the know looking will find it. Safer that way. I've een a few on kijiji in ontario but better safe than sorry.

Just my two cents.

In the Netherlands stills are sold via Marktplaats, the national version of eBay. Possession of a still is forbidden, but for our government home distilling does not seem to have much priority.
Some professional sellers talk about distilling very clean water or making essential oils. Which everybody with this hobby will understand.
Of course I do not know about Canada or the USoA, but when you see stills for sale on eBay, it can give you an idea of the risks.
