How To Sell Used Fishing Kayaks
By keeping some basic guidelines in mind, you can learn how to sell used fishing kayaks. For best results, be sure to advertise at a variety of places in order to get plenty of interest in your kayak.
- Clean the used fishing kayak. This is essential to both getting a good price for your fishing kayak, as well as to simply sell it at all. Start by removing any old fishing equipment, tools, nets, and other supplies that may be currently stored within the fishing kayak. Wash it thoroughly, and allow to dry completely. Applying a thin layer of wax to the kayak may also help it get sold.
- Determine an appropriate selling price for the used fishing kayak. Talk with fishing friends, store owners, and fishing kayak suppliers to determine a good selling price for your fishing kayak. While you want to make the most from your used kayak, if you price it too high it will not sell.
- Advertise your used fishing kayak. Again, talk with fishing friends, store owners, and fishing kayak suppliers. Tell them that you are selling your kayak, and supply them with a picture of the used fishing kayak. Post pictures at local bait stores, marines, and other places frequented by fishermen. Try to get as much word of mouth out about your used fishing kayak as possible.
- When you do get a buyer, make sure to settle on a selling price that is acceptable to both you and the buyer. You never know when you may have to deal with the person again—and therefore, it is best not to swindle them.
