Once a Used Elite equipment sale has transacted, what's involved in relocating the equipment?
Once the seller confirms full payment has been received, CEPros will schedule equipment prep and pick-up with the seller and the crating company or freight company.
CEPros requires crating companies to take photos of the equipment crating that are reviewed and approved by us before freight is scheduled.
Once the crating photos have been approved, CEPros notifies the buyer the equipment is ready to ship and confirms the delivery address and buyer's schedule.
All shipments are insured and include an appointment delivery time that works with your schedule.
