Winches are one of the many brilliant and phenomenal machineries that can be used to haul or hoist heavy weights, especially heavy vehicles, to minimize human labor and manpower.

Used winches need to be thoroughly inspected before you buy them, or even sell them. You should know the exact condition of it before selling it to somebody who wants to carry out laborious tasks with them. Tips to sell used winches are:

1. Check that the cable is smooth and rust free:

The cable around the drum should be in a good condition. It should be intact and shouldn’t be rusty. Rust causes the cable to break and some fatal damage is inevitable. If the rope isn’t in a good shape, it is always a better idea to get it replaced before selling.

2. The motor should be working:

The motor, which is used to turn the gears and drum and pull the cable, needs to be working properly. Always check it for the load that it is capable of lifting. Handing over and selling damaged motor causes them a lot of harm.

3. Always put up a photograph:

Whether you want to sell it online, or give an advertisement in a local newspaper or magazine, you should provide a photograph with the description. People want to look at the conditions themselves, rather than reading about it. Put up the photographs representing its exact and up to date condition, so the customer can get an idea about it.

Be thorough and carefully check all the parts before putting second hand cable winch for sale. Your customer needs a thorough information regarding it and there’s no harm in asking them to have a look at it in person.
