    Hello,
    I mainly joined this group for some guidance. My dad had a small residential carpet cleaning business for 25 years, sadly he suddenly passed away and his cleaning van was eft to me. I don't have any knowldege on the equipment and have no clue what to sell it for. Id love for it to g to someone who wants to start a small business but I want to make sure I am asking for a fair price. Any guidance, suggestions, or comments would be appreciated!!

    Van: 2001 Ford Ecocline , Miles: 160,000, Condition:fair - estimate value $1000
    Equipment: Permamount 70 (truck mount)

    Posting some pictures of the whole set up along with all the other equipment inside the van would be a big help to determine a price. I am not familiar with that truckmount at all, I have never heard of it.

    I would pull the unit from the truck so that it would appeal to a larger audience. Sell the truck locally to a tradesman of some sort. you could probably get more for the truck by itself cleaned up than leaving this unit in it and just appealing to carpet cleaners.

    First, thank you all for responding!

    It’s a Bane Clean system, it has the logo on the side and I’ve contacted with the model # to verify.

    I don’t know exactly how to go about moving that out of the van. It’s bolted in and weighs a ton. The van itself isn’t in great condition so I don’t know if it would be worth the trouble.

    As of now, I’m trying to set a price for the van and machine combo. I have some interested parties but as a person with no knowledge I want to make sure I’m getting a far price for me and the person buying.

    My sympathy on the death of your father. I am sure he put a lot of effort into this business.

    Being realistic, this older and lower quality equipment. Based on photos and not actually seeing it, I would price between $1,500 and $2,500. Depends on how quickly you want to sell it.

    Kaitlyn sorry for your loss

    Unfortunately your van (assuming it is in good, reliable condition) is probably worth more than the carpet machine. Bane Clene equipment is not exactly highly sought after - which is unfortunate because although it's old and not super powerful, they last forever and are very reliable. I would predict also a value of around $1500-2000.

    Another option - and one that I have personally found to be a great use of Bane clene machines, is to find an automotive detail shop close by. Those systems work awesome as a central extraction machine to use for those purposes.
