FAQs

How long does an ad last at OnlyEarthmoving?

At OnlyEarthmoving.com.au, your ads remain up until your earthmoving equipment sells. You only pay once to start selling, without needing to renew or extend your listing.

How many photographs should I include to sell my construction equipment online?

You want to include as many photos as possible to give your construction equipment the best chance of selling quickly. We recommend 20 or more. Ensure your photos show the exterior from at least 4 angles (front, back and both sides) and the interior, including the seat, controls, steering wheel, and engine bay.

You will also need to include photos of any minor (scratches and paint chips) and major (dents, rust cracks in the windshield etc) damage on the construction equipment. And of course, make sure your photos are well-lit and in focus - people are less likely to buy construction equipment online that they can't see properly.

What's the best way to write descriptions?

As with anything you're selling, the more information you can give the better. But don't just list the specs and features, tell a story via a detailed and honest description! Selling construction equipment online is about creating a connection with a potential buyer. Talk about what this earthmoving equipment has done for you and, most importantly, what it will do for them. Talk to your buyer, tell them how this construction equipment will benefit their business and what it will do for them.

How do I value my construction equipment?

The best way to value your construction equipment is to compare it to other listings of the same make and model. Try to find listings of a similar condition, age and machine hours to your construction equipment, and use those details to determine the value of your construction equipment.

How do I spot a scam or fraud sale?

There are a number of ways to spot a fraudulent or scam sale as a seller. Construction equipment buyers who offer to buy immediately without inspection or offer over your listing price are likely to be fraudulent. Additionally, buyers who refuse to provide contact details or speak on the phone are best avoided.

There has also been a rise in fraudulent buyers offering to pay using PayID. Although they may promise that it is a safe and secure method of payment, avoid dealing with these buyers at all costs and report them where possible.

Finally, always remember to trust your gut: if an offer seems too good to be true, it probably is.

How do I receive leads?

Interested prospective buyers will contact you directly through the 'Enquire Now' button on your listing, and you can then choose to continue your conversation with potential construction equipment buyers through email, phone or SMS.

Can I contact earthmoving equipment sellers?

Yes, you can. OnlyEarthmoving.com.au makes contacting sellers quickly and securely easy with the 'Enquire Now' button on every listing.

What is the best practice for buying and selling privately and safely?

The best way to buy and sell your vehicle safely is to ensure that you are dealing with a real person. Trust your gut when it comes to communicating with construction equipment buyers/sellers, and remember that you are under no obligation to continue contact with the individual if you don't want to.

If you have suspicions about a buyer or seller, email hello@onlyearthmoving.com.au and provide us with some details so we can properly review your concerns.

Can I sell construction equipment that is under finance?

No, you cannot sell construction equipment under finance as this is illegal and is known as an 'encumbered' vehicle. This is because the loan is attached to the construction equipment and not the buyer. While the buyer is technically responsible for repaying the vehicle's debt, the construction equipment is considered collateral for the loan, causing any outstanding debt to apply to the physical equipment.

Do I need a Motor Dealer licence to sell my construction equipment?

Generally, you do not need a Motor Dealer Licence to sell construction equipment, although you may be required to get one if you sell multiple pieces of equipment within a year. Every state limits how many vehicles you can sell before needing a Motor Dealer Licence, so be sure to check your state's regulations if you plan on selling multiple pieces of equipment.

Does my construction equipment need a roadworthy certificate to be sold?

Generally, construction equipment is exempt from needing a roadworthy certificate as it is not expressly designed for transporting passengers. However, the exact rules will differ from state to state, so check your state's requirements for selling, and obtain a roadworthiness certificate prior to listing your construction equipment online if one is required.

Can I sell my earthmoving equipment without registration?

As with a roadworthiness certificate, the regulations around this differ from state to state. Be sure to check your state's requirements before listing your construction equipment to avoid any issues for yourself or the buyer.
