Getting rid of old gear?

10 posts in this topic

So, I have a question. When I purchased my boat it had some electronics on it. I wanted to upgrade it, so I did. Now, what to do with this stuff? It all works, not the greatest shape. I can't seem to find values on any of this with no one selling any thing like them. One is a Lowrance global map that needs to updated(not sure the number on it). One is a lowrance fish finder, don't know the number on that one either. The screen is black and white with a yellow back lite that kinda flickers. The factory radio I might just throw out. The knobs on it stick and I am not sure if the tape deck even works.

Would it be best to put it on the for sale thing here, or hsolist or pawn shop?

you can check out hsolist, you might be suprised at the prices you get. I've sold 3 depthfinders so far on hsolist and have got top dollar every time. Often, the bidder already owns the same model that has issues and doesn't want to replace the other wiring/transducer on a discontinued product.

I checked out hsolist, not really interested in setting up a pay pal account, and I own no credit cards and have no idea where to price these things. I searched hsolist and found nothing that I have. They cant be that old off a 2000 crestliner unless the previous owner put some stuff he found on there.

Your not sure what the model number is because you can't remember or all the markings are rubbed off. If you find the numbers you should be able to google it to find possible values. Or if you aren't sure, just put a dollar value or best offer on it and post it this site or craigs list - if no one bites just keep dropping the price until it sells.

I would do the same thing as NCLaker mentioned, if you can't find a value for the units, just put a price and them and keep droping until someone buys them.

You MUST take pictures to post on either craig's, or hsolist if you want to have any chance at all of selling them.

Craig's also has a "free" section if you feel generous. You could probably get by without pics if you listed them under the free section.

Since these items dont have much value anyway, why not give them away to a friend, or someone in need of these items! If you dont know of anyone give them away here on FM, there are plenty of people in need of cheap items on this site. You wont be out much, do to the items value of maybe $20, and you wont have to worry about trying to get rid of them and the items going bad in a day or two and having someone mad that they got ripped off. And you will get the good feeling inside that you have helped someone, and you never know, the person that gets it just may end up being a new friend!

Okay, so I figured out what models they are. One is a globalmap 2400 with the external lgc12w ant. and the other is a X85 fish finder. I can not seem to able to find any of these for sale. Anybody able to find values on these for me? I know the X85 is probably not going to get me anything, but the 2400 should be worth something. I am trying to save up some dollars to get a bimmi top for my crestliner or even some down riggers.
