In any case, we do our best to sell your idle, surplus, or business assets at the maximum value possible so you can re-invest the capital into your business or settle any debts.
The typical process includes:
Our liquidators create an inventory of the assets owned by your business and assess what you intend to liquidate. The list should have detailed descriptions of each item, including the current condition, purchase information, warranty certificates, pictures, records of repairs, and so on. If some of the items are in poor condition, we recommend that you clean or repair them to maximize the sales prices.
The liquidation value refers to the expected amount from the asset sale, and usually depends on factors such as:
These situations have a considerable impact on the liquidation value of the asset, which may cause it to be much less than what you would get in a typical negotiation where there’s no pressure or urgency to make the sale.

You should engage a liquidator as soon as possible. Selling some of your assets can be a great way to recoup some money to pay back any outstanding debts and avoid bankruptcy.
This depends on the type of assets being liquidated and the business model of the liquidator. Some liquidators like to perform on-site / auction sales from the sellers location or remove all assets to bring to their warehouse for processing. Normally with an on-site / auction sale the seller can expect to pay some marketing cost but will recoup that cost from the profits when the assets sell. If the assets are being removed the seller can expect to be paid immediately upon removal.
If you’re selling your assets to a liquidator then there are no costs that you will incur because liquidators normally pay the seller and organize all logistics for removal.
The assets are sold and the proceeds are spilt amongst the creditors. Creditors that have secured debt against the company are paid first leaving unsecured creditors sometimes with little or nothing.
