Broker your equipment and trade up to new AVA gear

If you want to sell your existing AVA equipment to buy new equipment from us, we will be happy to broker your existing AVA gear for a reasonable fee.

For us to broker the AVA equipment you already own, you'll need to send it to us for evaluation. We are only able to broker original and unmodified AVA equipment that's in good working order. If your equipment meets these criteria, we will suggest a fair used price for it. (In most cases, this is about 70% of new for newer equipment and 30% to 60% for older models.) If you agree to the price, we will clean your unit to make it look as good as we can and list it for sale on this website with an accurate description.

You have the choice between buying your new equipment right away or waiting until your existing equipment has sold. If you want to buy new equipment right away, you'll pay full price for the new equipment up front. Then when your brokered equipment sells, we will send you a check for 80% of the sale price of the brokered equipment.

If you'd rather sell your existing equipment before buying new equipment, then once your existing equipment has sold and all satisfaction guarantees have expired, we will issue you a credit of 80% of the sale price toward the purchase of new AVA made equipment.

The buyer pays us directly. We will handle shipping it to the buyer. We will also transfer the balance of the original AVA warranty to the new owner or provide them with a one year limited parts and labor warranty, whichever is longer.

To begin the process, call us at 651-330-9871 so that we can discuss what you are planning to buy, the equipment that you want us to broker, and whether it's a good candidate for this service.

Or sell your equipment outright

Do you want to sell your AVA equipment without upgrading to new AVA equipment? We can do that too. The only difference between selling outright versus upgrading is a higher consignment fee of 30%. Once your equipment has sold and all satisfaction guarantees have expired, we will send you a check for 70% of the sale price of the equipment.

This fee covers our time to inspect and clean the unit and the costs of providing a parts and labor warranty to the next buyer. Keep in mind that we are in a position to command an excellent price for your equipment as the buyer will have the confidence of dealing factory direct and getting a factory warranty.
