Equipped is a trading platform for indoor farm equipment built by indoor agriculture industry veterans Contain Inc.
In our everyday interactions at Contain, indoor farmers often ask us where they can find used and affordable indoor farm equipment, and we never had a decent answer. At the same time, more established growers wondered where they could resell or donate used equipment.
We discovered that they were scouring mainstream listing sites, with fingers crossed that transactions won’t fall through. First of all, these sites were never designed for specialty farming equipment. And secondly, who wants to sift through large resell websites, meet a seller in a parking lot somewhere, and never feel fully confident in their purchases? With limited information and zero verification processes, there’s little to no guarantee that you’ll get what you paid for.
We realized that there was an opportunity for us to be of service to the industry by providing a reliable, secure marketplace.
