Sell Your Surplus Machinery

If you have been thinking of selling, here are some recommendations to get the most value out of your surplus machinery.

When to Sell
It’s common for metalworking machinery to go from being used heavily every day for years to sitting idle or in storage when production needs change. When do you sell? Machinery should be sold as soon as it has served its purpose to get the most value out of it. Storing unused machinery for long periods will decrease the value and take up space. When you discover that your equipment is taking more than it is giving out, it makes sense to sell.

How to Sell

Selling your surplus machinery can seem to be a daunting task if you are unfamiliar with the process and options available. We offer the options (see below) you need and have the resources to sell your equipment as quickly as possible for a fair price. We buy tube mills, rollformers, coil handling equipment and other metalworking machinery. Read on as we outline your options to derive the most value out of your surplus equipment.

Immediate Cash Buy
Send us information and pictures of your tube mill, rollformer or other machinery and if interested, we will present you with an offer. If accepted, you will have the proceeds before removing your machinery.

Auction Sale
If you are closing a production plant with tube, pipe and rollform machinery all you need to do is contact us. Who better to help liquidate than a global company with the customer database you require to advertise and sell your machinery fast and at a fair price. We will work with you to determine the best way to get the top dollar you need and will bring in specialists to help get the job done. We can handle the entire process or just as much as you need us to.

Selling on Consignment means you own the machinery until the date of sale while we work to get you the price you need. You can’t lose! Keep the machinery at your facility, or we will bring it to our warehouse where we can clean and paint it, advertise, bring in the customer and send you a check when it is sold.

If you have machinery no longer in use because your production needs have changed consider a trade deal. Call and talk to our sales team and discover what is possible. Perhaps trading in obsolete pieces in exchange for the newer or updated machines is the answer.

We build retrofit repower packages that can upgrade your surplus machinery to get it back in operation. We can quote you a complete or partial upgrade according to your application and budget.
