What is a full service buyer?
A full service buyer vs direct sale would be similar in comparison to auto dealer trade in vs private sale. We can offer you immediate cash payment for your fixed assets no haggling, tire kicking or recourse. We have all the infrastructure & experience in place and do not need assistance or training. When planning a project that entails obsolete or retired equipment it's removal many times is seen as an obstacle not a benefit. We have been changing that perception. Even though plant equipment is not designed with mobility in mind, we can deploy disconnect, millwright, crane rental and heavy transport ourselves with our own experienced personnel. All of these costs can be built into our offer.
In our experience obsolete equipmentplanning runs in 2 mindsets. The first being disposal the second being cache and sell. A full service sale would be the middle ground. We can offer full disconnect (lock out) and removal, millwright and crane & heavy transport even clear piping & conduit and even put your new plant equipment in place.
When we make an offer on your equipment you are the decider of how we would fit into your team. We can deploy a full range of services to assist your project or just make payment and arrange transport. We can be with you from beginning to the end of your project or call us at the last minute to buy your equipment. We can tailor our services to fit you and your project's needs.
Please email us a few pictures of your equipment and be sure to include a picture of manufactures tag and indicate what level of service you expect or need. Many times we assemble a cash offer for your equipment within hours.If your project is large we can arrange a site visit from our closest rep.
We have purchased over 2600 pieces of machinery in the past 7 years. Many times these machines were destined for a scrap dealers. We were able to pay exponentially more that what was being offered by competitors.
