Selling old stock

Discussion in 'Design and technology' started by remetiffy, Oct 26, 2011.

  1. We have had a dig out and have unearthed loads of materials, mostly electronic components. I was wondering if there was a way of selling this stuff to recoup some of the money.
     
  2. Why not start by listing what you have here? Somebody might make you an offer. We've sold a few things on ebay and swapped some items with other local schools.

    Just be very careful (I think) misappropriation of funds is still a sack-able offense.

    We had to offer our spare equipment to other local authority schools via the council bulletin first before we could sell anything. Depends what type of school you are. Definitely worth taking advice from the finance office/ bursar and authority if relevant... and make sure money goes back into your department... it could just go back into school budget and be used where others think it appropriate in these cash-strapped times!!
