If you're in the market for new or used semiconductor equipment, be sure to check out online auctions for the lab equipment you're looking for. As the pioneer of online auctions, eBay is an exceptionally good source that is unsurpassed by any other site, providing at any given time an incredible number of different items in what seems to be a nearly infinite number of categories. Before you begin bidding on any online auctions for the semiconductor equipment you need, keep the following 5 points in mind to help ensure your buying experience is a positive one.
First, only place a bid once you've familiarized yourself with the auction site and its terms and conditions. The more you educate yourself, the better! Sellers also set their own conditions, so be sure to clearly read their policies.
Second, double check that you are bidding on the item you actually want. Closely examine the item description and any included photographs. Is the item refurbished or close out? Discontinued or off brand? How will any of these affect your use of the item in the long term?
Third, send the seller any unanswered questions you may have after reading their item description. A trustworthy seller should get back to you within a reasonable amount of time. They should be able to provide you with a satisfactory answer if they have the item in hand and are knowledgeable about what they are selling.
Fourth, research the seller as much as you can. Have they provided a website address? Do they have a business phone number? Call the number to ensure it's valid.
Fifth examine any feedback posted by other buyers. How long has the seller been selling on this site? Is the feedback positive? Or has this seller received a high number of negative comments?
Buying semiconductor equipment via an online auction can be a wonderful experience that saves you quite a bit of money. If you follow the above tips, you will maximize your chances of walking away with both a good experience and exactly the item you were looking for.
