Steps to sell industrial machinery

Do you know how to sell your industrial machinery? It is very important that you have previous knowledge of the industrial second-hand market. Because second-hand machines depreciate considerably, even if they work almost as good as a new one.

In this post we explain you step by step how to sell your second hand industrial machine, take note!

Steps to sell industrial machinery

First, whether you are selling your industrial machine due to business closure or production line replacement, the following aspects must be taken into consideration:

  • What type of machine is it? For example, is it a lathe or a milling machine? Is it 5-axis?
  • Year of manufacture
  • Condition of the machine

In addition, the running time will be valued. This will be considered a determining factor depending on the machine and the industry where it will be used.

The used machinery market is very competitive, which is why many companies choose to buy second-hand machinery to achieve high production standards at an economical price. You may be wondering, then how much money can I get back.

We recommend you to be realistic in establishing the percentage of return on investment you want to obtain. However, at 3Axis Group we always carry out a previous study of the market so that you know the real prices.

Here is how to sell your machine with 3Axis Group in 3 easy steps.
