Changing Systems- Avoiding Financial Loss

What is the best method to avoid substantial financial loss when changing systems, if one is heavily invested in the lenses for a system? Especially if one has many expensive pro-level lenses?

Ideally, one would like to sell it all at a go, but that does not seem possible. It seems one must go piece by piece, and that's a hassle, as well as a huge loss (you get less than one half the new value).

With ebay, if the buyer says he received a brick, any money he paid goes right back to him and you are out an expensive camera or lens. Locally, still a hassle, and a big loss. Here on dpreview, still a question of where the risk falls.

Any solutions?
