Sporting goods and fitness equipment are a common highlight of many auctions, for a variety of reasons. First, people often decide to sell these items if they need more room or are upgrading to new equipment. (And of course sometimes people just get bored with their workout routine or the sport they have tried, and decide to move on to something else.) Hotels, gyms, athletic organizations and other businesses also often need to clear out surplus inventory or things they no longer need.
For buyers, there are several advantages to buying sports or fitness equipment at an auction. These items tend to be pricey when new, but you can get them at a significant discount at an auction—even though the items are frequently in almost new condition. Since items are often sold in bulk, this is a smart way to get a quick batch of new inventory for a business such as a gym, or even for a nonprofit group or sports league.
Of course, if you are looking for items to flip for a profit, that’s also an option, since you probably won’t have any trouble finding potential customers—it seems like everyone is interested in getting in better shape these days.
As an added advantage for buyers, the inspection period gives you a valuable opportunity to check out the items and ensure they are what you want (and will fit in your available space) before you spend any money.
You will frequently find sports and fitness items among the inventory available at our sales at Auction Systems Auctioneers and Appraisers, so watch our auctions listings for information on our upcoming events.
