If you’re in the appliance resale market and looking to purchase returned, excess and scratch and dent appliances from Best Buy, you can do so through the Best Buy Liquidation Auctions marketplace. Through the online auction marketplace, resellers have the opportunity to source bulk quantities of brand name, liquidated appliances at great prices.
If you’re a small business owner who typically purchases returned inventory from a third-party liquidator, there has never been a better time to ditch the middleman and purchase directly from the source. Remember, third party liquidators typically mark up the goods they are selling in order to cover the cost of shipping and to make a profit. They also have the opportunity to see the items before passing them onto you; possibly keeping the highest quality items to sell on their own. Buying straight from a retailer (like Best Buy) through an online auction marketplace allows you a level playing field and fair market prices.
The Best Buy marketplace carries a variety of appliance brands including Samsung, Whirlpool, LG, and Maytag among others. To see what liquidated inventory is available for resellers, check out the Best Buy Liquidation Auctions marketplace, powered by B-Stock. Keep in mind, appliances bought through Best Buy Liquidation Auctions will not come with a warranty.
