How to Broker Liquidation Merchandise
A Liquidation Broker provides lost revenue to individuals or companies who are faced with the task of moving defunct, excess, salvage, and overstock merchandise. Without a brokers expertise within the arena of liquidation, individuals and companies face the prospect of sitting on inventory that is taking up valuable space and producing zero revenue.
A liquidation broker uses expert knowledge to show small and large resellers how to capitalize by reselling name brand merchandise sourced for pennies on the dollar.
The liquidation broker then brings these two parties (a seller and a buyer) providing value to each side of the transaction. The broker can make a generous profit assisting and bringing together the two parties for which otherwise might not have met.
To put this into better prospective think of a real estate broker and how he (or she) represents a buyer and a seller. Single family and commercial properties are sold around the world daily with the help and expertise of a real estate broker. A real estate broker makes a percentage of each sales transaction, and in case you did not know, this percentage is quite large. This pay is based upon a real estate agents knowledge of the industry and his adherence to the current real estate laws.
A liquidation broker can build a highly successful, and profitable, business helping resellers locate and secure fast selling liquidation merchandise. For his work, a liquidation broker can enjoy a handsome payday.

Your Liquidation Broker questions answered…
How lucrative is this opportunity? – A liquidation broker adds a markup to each pallet, lot, or truckload. This markup can be a fixed amount or can be applied as a percentage of inventory retail or wholesale value. The markup amount is entirely up to the broker, and earnings potential is based upon how much time a broker puts into his or her own business.

Brokering liquidation merchandise is not easy, it takes
knowledge and determination to build the business.
I would never tell anyone this can be built overnight.
Let’s keep it real, I am not about hype or false claims…
Our brokers guide is not a get rich quick opportunity. If you are not willing to work hard, “X” out of the window above and move on. Brokering liquidation merchandise can be a stable and rewarding business, but it takes time to set up a repeat client base. If it were easy, everyone would flood the industry!
Our Broker Guide is not an “out of the box” business opportunity, meaning we are not providing equipment, supplier contact lists, buyers lists, or and other tangible assets. Our Brokers guide explains the process of brokering excess inventory based on personal knowledge of the industry. It’s up to you to take this information and apply it to your own situation.
Our brokers guide does not advocate searching for the deals where you makes a $42,000.00 profit by flipping two container loads of goods within two hours. High dollar deals are out there, but are few and far between. Large deals are put together by those who have been in the business for sometime and have fostered strong buying relationships with reputable overseas contacts. There is nothing wrong with looking for high dollar deals, but our course is more suited for someone just getting started within the industry of brokering.
Our Brokers Guide does not answer every question imaginable when it comes to brokering merchandise…this is just not possible. We will, however, provide an email address where you can send additional questions. We will answer questions based upon our experience within the industry. Question will be honored for seven days from date of purchase.
