Always talk with an accountant or CPA before deciding the best way to send used childcare equipment to its next life. Used equipment can certainly be sold on-line via the usual and well-known vendors, but it can also be donated to other schools or centers in need, orphanages, foster homes, local parks and recreation centers. Donors may receive tax benefits from these donations made to charitable organizations.
For larger equipment that doesn’t easily transition to smaller venues, it can be evaluated / appraised and sold to other companies. Furniture, Fixture and Equipment (“FF&E”) valuations from the free rough estimates to detailed reports are provided by BFS® for playground equipment, cribs, cubbies, kitchen equipment, buses, vans, cots, children’s furniture, changing stations, beds and more than 200 other items found in childcare centers nationwide.
Sometimes this equipment is simply discarded without regard to its remaining useful life. Unless the equipment is unsafe, there are always children and organizations who want access to this equipment, and it’s not hard to find someone who will take it.
