What Can You Do with End of Life Construction Equipment?


To ensure optimal performance on the job, you sometimes need to bid farewell to even your most trusted and longest-serving heavy equipment. No matter how well you take care of and maintain your machines, they will eventually deteriorate with regular use. To minimize unexpected breakdowns, it’s crucial to replace end-of-life equipment before the risk of failure becomes too high.

But what can you do with your old machines when it’s time to part ways? You don’t want them sitting around, taking up valuable space or degrading even further if they still have some value to offer. Here are four primary options for properly disposing of end-of-life equipment:

Sell Your Equipment Direct: If your equipment is still in usable condition, consider selling it directly to a buyer or contacting your dealer or manufacturer to see if they’re interested. While it can take time and effort to find a buyer, it’s a way to recoup some of your investment.

Trade In Your Used Equipment: At Luby Equipment, we understand that parting ways with your old machines can be a daunting task. That’s why we offer a hassle-free solution: trade them in! Our trade-in program is designed to make the process as seamless as possible for you.

Recycle or scrap it: If your equipment is beyond restoration, recycling or scrapping may be the only option. While you won’t get as much money as selling, it’s better than letting it sit idle. Scrap and recycling centers may offer a small amount for it.

Auction Your Equipment: Auctions can be a great alternative, especially if your equipment is in high demand. Online bidding sites make it easier to reach potential buyers, even if the machine is in poor condition.

    Final Thoughts: Don’t let old equipment take up valuable space in your facility. Whether you have one machine reaching its end of life or several, there are ways to dispose of it while potentially recouping some of your costs. Consider these options to determine the best approach for your operations and make the most of your equipment’s lifecycle.
