We Found Buyers for Blackberries, Buildings and Buses on eBay!
As Purchasing officials know all too well, school districts have
no shortage of surplus "stuff". Over the past two years,
InterSchola has helped many school clients dispose of common asset
categories such as vehicles, food service items, technology, shop
equipment, etc. We can help dispose of many other types
ofsurplus as well, often yielding high results for items you may
believe have a limited value.
In May InterSchola helped the Clovis Unified School District
dispose of a large number of Blackberry handheld devices that had
recently been taken out of service by the district. We sorted
these units into manageable lot sizes, found appropriate venues in
which to promote and market these listings, and ultimately sold
the units for over $1,300.00.
Also in May, we helped another California school district find an eBay
buyer for a 40' x 8'
storage container that had been converted into an office. When
listed on eBay, thisitem sold for $1,225.00.
A few months ago, InterSchola helped a San Francisco Bay Area School District
dispose of 17 retired school buses. We found buyers for all 17
buses on eBay and through our network of customers. Among the
buses that were listed for public auction was a 1990 Ford Collins
18 Passenger Econoline School Bus, with over 378,000 miles. This
bus sold for $2,225.00.
No matter what kind of item, no matter
how old, and no matter how little value you may think it has, give
us a call. We willlet you know if the item is a good candidate
for an eBay sale. As your colleagues from the districts above
have learned, you may be pleasantly surprised!
Linking Sellers With Buyers
InterSchola's mission is to link sellers of education-related
surplus items with the buyers who need these same assets. Please
let us know if you have any specific needs for high-quality used
(and new) school items that are not listed in our current auctions.
We can perform a search of your needs within our database and do our
best to match your school with one of our clients as these items
become available. Contact us at email@example.com.
