Been thinking an awful lot lately, and I think I'm going to start selling off the collection. There are a few tractors that I will keep, due to them being willed to me and the kids from my Dad, but for the most part, everything will go. I made up a list last week of all of the tractors, attachments, parts, motors, wheels and tires, accessories, and memorabilia, and tried to come up with selling pricing. I thought about just hiring an auction company to come in and just start selling everything off, but I feel ebay might be my better method, since it reaches a vast majority of the world. My wife suggested Craiglist, but I just don't feel like putting up with unreasonable offers, or dealing with unnecessary headaches. Some of the tractors haven't been run for years, so with ebay, I can take my time to work on them, and list them after I have them up and running.
I want to ask you guys for your advice. When listing the tractors, I'm planning on selling a tractor with the mower deck. Because I have so many other attachments, would you throw in extra attachments with each tractor, or would you list the extra attachments individually? As for the accessories, each set of headlights were bought separate from the tractors, and then installed afterwards. Would you take off the headlights and sell them as a set individually, or would you keep them mounted on the tractor and sell them with the tractor? I've been watching the prices lately on ebay, and it seems that the tractors don't bring anymore than normal with or without headlights, but a set of headlights by themselves bring well over $200.00 a set.
Let me know your thoughts and ideas. It took me a long time to achieve this collection, so I want to be sure that I do things right in regards to selling it all.
