Is an aviation auction the smartest way to maximize asset value?

Many domestic and foreign airlines and aircraft operators have been mandated to trim down their aircraft maintenance operations or subcontract it to other facilities outside USA, due to the recent economic depression which have greatly affected the aviation industry.  A good number of repair and maintenance operations (MRO) and avionics shop closed down permanently since they could no longer Survive. The only properties left for liquidation are typically the aircraft parts and equipment used by their operation. In many cases the owners see no other choice than relying on an aviation auction house to auction their equipments, parts and avionics test equipment and tooling at a minimum cost.  Yet, there are better ways for the owners to capitalize on their assets.

Air-show-Festival-Jet-plane

The best solution for this predicament is to consult aviation distributors who are experts in the type of aircraft components, parts and test equipments they own. This will allow the owner of the equipments to negotiate best value for their asset. One such distributor is AvionTEq who is specialized in aviation test equipment and tooling. AvionTEq makes it simple for sellers to offer their test equipment for sale and negotiate the best prices for these equipments. Seller can submit an online Offer to Sell form providing information, pictures and documents for the aviation equipment they offer for sale. Seller will receive a fair market value offer from AvionTEq very quickly and can finalize the sale and receive the cash in matter of days. The equipment owner will no longer have to go through the lengthy and painful process of signing contracts with auction companies, paying a big premium for sale of his/her property and wait weeks or in some cases months before they see any money.
