A major consideration when buying used grain silos from private dealers of used farm equipment or auction companies is quality of the product. Not all used grain silos are in good condition, so it's important to contact the seller to discuss the silo's condition. One way to ensure the quality of the silo is to do business with dealers who don't sell silos in poor condition. Independent sellers of grain silos sometimes use sites such as Fastline.com, and their listings include images and a brief product description.
Look for details such as the brand name, model number and year of initial distribution. The sellers name and contact information should be listed as well. Purchasing a used grain silo online from an auction company is riskier, because silos are auctioned off in "as is" condition and buyers assume all costs for removal from the auction site and shipping.Learn more about Agriculture
