The Benefits of a Modular Broker when Selling your used Modular Assets in a Specialized Market

What is meant by a ‘Specialized Modular Market’?

A specialized market for used modulars refers to a market segment that has unique and specific needs or requirements for these units.

For example, in the construction industry, modular units may be used for crew housing and other project facilities like site offices.

A modular broker with experience in the construction industry, would have the knowledge and connections necessary to market the units effectively to potential buyers.

  1. Maximizing the selling price: A modular broker can assist the seller with setting a fair and competitive selling price for the used modular units based on their market value and condition.

  2. Access to a wider market: A experienced modular broker typically has access to a wider network of potential buyers for used modular units. This can include buyers who are actively looking  to purchasing modular units for a specific market or purpose. By tapping into this wider market, the seller can increase the chances of finding a buyer who is willing to pay fair market value for used modular assets.
