Listing your equipment

How do I list my equipment?

Listing your equipment is fast, easy, and FREE. Simply click on Sell at the top of any page to discover a variety of resources and videos on how to create your listing. You can use the Listing Guide to help you assemble your information and navigate the online listing process.

You can also use our mobile app, which is an abbreviated version of the full online listing process created especially for use on your mobile device. For step by step instructions and FAQs, visit our app page.

Prefer to email your information to us? Simply send it to listings@hddbroker.com and don't forget to refer to the Listing Guide.

How much does it cost to list my equipment?

Listing your equipment is absolutely FREE. HDD Broker adds a small commission on top of your asking price. Our commission is the lowest in the industry, ranging from 5-12%. So when you list your equipment, ensure your "asking price" reflects what you want in your pocket!

Do I have to sign a contract? What if I sell the equipment on my own?

You have NO obligation to HDD Broker until we bring you a customer. If you sell your equipment on your own, simply let us know and we'll remove your listing.

Ok, I've listed my equipment. How long until it's on your website?

Each of our listings is carefully hand-reviewed. Once your listing is "live" we'll send you an email confirmation, usually within 24 hours.

I have changes/more information to add to my listings, how do I do that?

We love lots of information, so we've made it easy for you to send us more photos, files, and even videos! Log in to your myBroker account and click on "Your Listings". Select the relevant listing and click on "Add Files". Please contact us directly if you have a file larger than 20 MB.

You can submit an unlimited number of photos, files, spreadsheets, and videos, as well as modify or edit your listing through your myBroker account (please allow up to 24 hours for the changes to go live).

You can also email your attachments / changes to listings@hddbroker.com

Does HDD Broker buy equipment?

HDD Broker is a brokerage firm that acts on behalf of buyers and sellers, so we do not take ownership of equipment. However, we have a dedicated wholesale department that has a network of dealers, rental companies, and vendors that are always ready to buy. We have developed an exciting "trade-in" program, so if you are looking to liquidate your equipment at a very competitive wholesale rate, look to price your trade-in, or contact us for more information.
