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 move on the previously scheduled equipment prep and engage the crating company and freight company. Or if optioned, facilitate a buyer pick-up.
CEPros requires crating companies to take photos of the equipment crating that are reviewed and approved by us before freight is scheduled.
This assures a safe equipment transport.
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.
