All Terrain Vehicles (ATVs) Sell Well On eBay
by: Sydney Johnston
ATV auctions are healthy markets on eBay. All terrain vehicles have changed in the last few years (naturally) and the major change has been from one person ATVs to two person models.

The best selling atvs on eBay are:

* Bombardier
* Arctic Cat
* Kawasaki
* Polaris
* Yamaha
* Honda
* Suzuki

Demand is especially strong in the warm weather months, although snow mobiles are moderately

If you're going to ride all terrain vehicles, check out the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission's free safety report, #450:

If you're an ATV seller on eBay, you will be doing your buyers a service to refer to the publication above, and also to recommend the following protective gear should be worn every time your buyer rides an ATV:

Helmet — Select a helmet that bears the label of either the Department of Transportation, the American National Standards Institute or the Snell Memorial Foundation. The helmet should fit snugly and be securely fastened. Full-face helmets protect your face as well as your head. Open-face types are lighter and cooler, but should be used with a chin guard that will offer chin and mouth protection.

Eye protection — Eye protection is a must. If an object such as a rock, branch or even a bug hits you in the face, it will distract you and may cause blindness if it hits you in the eyes.

Regular sunglasses do not provide adequate protection. The helmet's face shield or a pair of riding goggles will protect your eyes properly. Select well-ventilated goggles that can be securely fastened and are free from scratches.

Gloves — Gloves provide protection from abrasions and help to keep your hands from getting sore, tired or cold. Off-road style motorcycle gloves provide a good combination of protection and comfort.

Boots — Riders should wear boots that lace up at least above the ankle for ankle support, with low heels to help prevent the boot from slipping off the footrests.

Shirt and pants — A long-sleeved shirt and long pants should be worn to reduce abrasions on the body.

Selling ATVs is a lucrative market on eBay -and for added profit, why not sell the safety equipment above? It will add to your bank account and protect your buyers.
