When the time has come to depart with your Diagnostic Imaging or Radiation Therapy equipment, you will be faced with several options: selling, consigning, removing & disposing, trade-in or auction. The pros and cons of each option are examined more closely in our Seller’s Guide, along with additional tips to maximize the value of your used equipment.
Regardless of the option you choose, you will first want to establish the Fair Market Value (FMV) for your equipment. This will determine what your equipment is worth.
Here is a short checklist of information that will help you secure your equipment’s current value:
Key equipment information: manufacturer, model, date of manufacture, etc.
Original manufacturer’s quote, if you have it
Photos of equipment, software and accessories
Software options and upgrades
Age of major component upgrades
Confirmation of existing service (this is important to ensure the equipment will be acceptable under a continuing service agreement)
Usage information (mAs, slice counts, gantry rotations, scan seconds, beam hours)
Accessories and options that come with the equipment (chiller, injector, flat table, lasers etc.)
Current cosmetic condition
Names and contact information of personnel who can provide technical details about the equipment
If possible, the cost that the manufacturer will charge for the re-licensing or re-registration of the software to a new owner
When seeking a FMV, it is always best to contact an organization with background and knowledge about the equipment you are selling; one that tracks recent transactions for comparable equipment across the industry.
