ebay...or where/how to sell used automation equipment?

Hi All,
I am hoping to sell some used automation equipment... VSD's (invertors) PLC's, logic blocks and some pneumatic and hydraulic equipment and that kind of's mostly about 10years old and probably not worth so much but I'm wondering would e-bay be the best place or is there a better way to target a more specific market? Any thoughts?
Kind Regards...

You might want to check out under the services tab at top there is a selection to sell new or used surplus to them. They also pay the freight

FYI, PLCCENTER also lists many (but not all) of their holdings on eBay as well. I believe PLC Center does buy some equipment (I've never sold to them), but also sells consignment for higher ticket items.

I used ebay initially and some of my smaller "component-y" product (couple of brick-style micro PLCs) sold quickly, while my better hardware, like a 15" HMI didn't get a single bid. Everything was sold to The gentleman above is correct, they will pay for freight. Just be prepared to be shocked at how little they will offer, but it will be better than having the hardware laying around
