Hello, I would like to see if someone has any suggestions for me. I have much experience and degrees in computer and electronic repair. I have started a business where I buy mostly salvage or returned computers and laptops in which I repair myself and then re-sell on ebay. I was purchasing merchandise from "liquidation.com" and won a couple good lots a couple months back that i was able to return a decent profit from. However, the merchandise on that site for my niche is not nearly as good as it was a couple months ago. Not only that, but the auction style lots have gotten way more competitive to the point If I do manage to win a lot I'm not returning any profit on it. I am in need of a new supplier and have used some of salehoos directory but it is very challenging to find a company to deal through for my niche. If anyone has a suggestion on a good one or any kind of advice from someone more experienced in reselling than myself, I would greatly appreciate it as I am taking this very seriously and will not give up.

Thank you for taking the time to read.

-Brenden

Hi Brendon,

Have you tried actual liquidation companies themselves with surplus lots of customer returns?

I have not tried that yet. I see "bulq" is one such company you have in your directory. I will give them a try. Thank-you very much!

No problems,

The big benefit from dealing directly with a liquidator themselves is that you will get a set price per lot, it's not an auction format. Of course being suplus, it's the quality of stock that will alrenate between loads, but as you are repairing, that side isn't so much of a concern to you.

Good luck with it.
