Q: Why should I buy through a used machinery dealer?
A:
The used machinery business has been around for decades. Dealers who regularly buy and sell machines are called "stocking" dealers. They have an inventory of used machine tools they've bought and have ready to sell. These dealers will also purchase used machines. They may specialize in particular types of machines or have a wide range of equipment. The second type of dealer represents machines for the seller, acting as a broker.

Q: What does the dealer bring to the purchase process?
A:
They are specialists. They have the technical experience you can depend on to find the right machine for your business. Used machinery is not a commodity; there's no easy reference guide on price and value. Dealers know the value of used machine tools and can help you find the right equipment at the right price. In additional, they have the contacts to help you arrange financing, leasing, rigging and shipping.

Q: Wouldn't I be better off buying directly from a company selling a used machine?
A:
Perhaps, if you can find the exact machine you need and are confident that the seller is telling you all the information you need to make an informed decision. Also, if you buy direct, are you prepared to have the machine shipped and set up in a timely manner? Do you have the time it takes to shop around and find the best used machine to meet your needs?
