Setting up shop or your own business, can cost a fortune, as we all know. How many times have you sat down and tried to figure out just how much you will need to set up your shop? If you are also looking to buy industrial workbenches and equipment, this can add even more zeros to your final total right?

Well before you sign on the dotted line for that huge line of credit to purchase your industrial workbenches and other equipment needed. Take a look at the used business market.

It is sad to see other businesses failing, but at the same time it doesn't hurt to see just what equipment they may be selling off. If you see a business has failed, then contact the "receiver" to see if they are going to sell off any of the industrial workbenches and equipment and when.

Usually the name of the receiver in charge of liquidating will be in a notice on the premises or you will see them in the local newspaper or trades papers.

If the business had a building or physical address, there should be a sheriff note or bank note of some kind on the door, about who the "receiver or liquidator" is. Copy down that number and phone them.

Personally, we own a business, and when a airline closed its doors, we were able to purchase industrial equipment from them at a very good price. The receivers and liquidators may hold an auction, in which case you have to wait until that day, or many times if you approach them, just like we did, and give them a decent offer, they will accept on the spot.

So, don't be afraid to approach a receiver or liquidator to see if any industrial workbenches, equipment and anything else you may need might be for sale at a good price.

Otherwise, you should check the ads in your local paper under 'industrial equipment for sale" A business may be moving or expanding or changing how they operate and may want to get rid of some equipment and workbenches.

Have a good idea of what you are looking for in industrial workbenches and other equipment, know some measurements. No point purchasing something that won't fit through the door.

In a large shop they may not look that big, until you try to get them back to your home or business.
