Any Advice on Selling My Equipment?

I am moving and, sadly, I need to find a home for most of the Crossfit equipment I've accumulated. I'm looking to find suggestions on ways to sell my stuff for the best combination of high price / low hassle.

I have the following I need to sell:
A Rogue barbell
160 lbs of Rogue bumper plates (2x 45, 25, 10)
Approx 250 lbs of iron weights for the olympic bar (2x 45, 35, 25, 10, and a bunch of 5s)
Model D Concept 2 rower w/ PM3, log card and heart rate monitor kit
York squat/bench press stand
Adjustable bench
6 lb Dynamax med ball
10 lb Nike med ball (like a heavy basketball)
Paralettes
2 dumbbells that take olympic size plates
45 lb Everlast punching bag w/ gloves
A badass pull-up bar made out of iron pipe, 4 foot

Any ideas? I've looked into ebay and craigslist. Ebay would work for the rower and maybe the med balls / dumbbells but I have nightmares about trying to arrange shipping for everything else. Craigslist, at list the one for Lexington, KY, seems to be for getting rid of old bowflexs and not appropriate for selling high quality gear.

Could I package all this together to sell to an affiliate or someone serious about building a world class home gym? If so, what's the easiest way? Any other advice?

Thanks!

Re: Any Advice on Selling My Equipment?

If you price your stuff right it should sell pretty quickly, just put it on Craigslist and tag the ad "Crossfit Equipment" along with the individual items for sale. Also, let local affiliates in the area know you have equipment for sale. For the board here, I would expect you'll get a few PMs from CFers in the area. Good luck! sorry you have to get rid of your toys!

Just because that's mostly what's being sold on CL doesn't mean there aren't 100+ crossfitters searching daily, waiting for something good to pop up.

I'll try that. Ideally, I'd like to sell the whole kit and kaboodle to one individual as a package.
