Have a used gadget or parts of a gadget you’ll like to buy or even sell? Perhaps you’ve looked for it in many places yet fortune didn’t smell on you, for instance, if you wanted to buy old gaming systems parts by parts to help you in fixing it, do you think there are sites that will have those in stock?
Yes there are websites to buy old or recycled electronics, so no worries. You’ll be suprised at things you can buy in this stores, old, untested even new electronics can be gotten, although wether they are old or new they all have some things in common, all the electronics had been used and recycled, they are also cheap, cheaper than the brand-news, while some are very old but in good conditions others maybe new but may have been used 1 week or more before the owner decides to sell it as used item, despite buying it as brandnew.
Some of this are surplus and used equipment stores that are great for test equipment, oscilloscopes, or lab equipment (which you can grab some great parts out of that would be several $100’s otherwise). They will be the kind of shops you drive to though (some may do online sales as well). For instance in the Toronto area, one is A1 Electronics which you can see they have used tektronix 465Bs for $250 where as on Ebay, they are going for $300-$500+…quote by users
Here are the list in no particular order
For things like old consoles, TVs, DVDs, and other electronics Kijiji is one of the best. See the difference in price by going to used game shops as you’ll have to part with 2 or 3x as much as someone selling on Kijiji.
Craigslist provides a platform for local classifieds ads and forums for jobs, housing, for sale, personals, services, local community, and others, including sales of used goods like electronics at a cheap rate as you get to deal with vendors/merchant.
