Used propane furnaces can be purchased online from auction sites such as eBay as well as from local classifieds sites such as Craigslist. As these sites feature listings from both private sellers and businesses, the quality and amount of information in each listing can vary significantly.
All listings for used propane purchases on eBay can be sorted by several factors, such as price range, the date on which the listing was posted, the seller feedback rating, and the location of the seller. Shipping prices and methods for each item sold on eBay are decided by the individual seller, which means that some may offer free shipping while others pass the full shipping price onto the buyer. It is important to factor shipping costs into the final sale price to determine if the cost still justifies the purchase of a used propane furnace over a new one.
Craigslist organizes the postings on its site based on geographic location, which means that the majority of users intend to sell items within a local radius. If a user is looking at listings several cities or states away, it is up to the buyer to handle shipping arrangements or organize a way to pick up the furnace herself.
