Products change, materials change, and technology is always changing. You can sell any CNC equipment that’s no longer providing enough revenue for its floor space or maybe is mothballed offsite.

Why sell your used CNC machine to us?
For a Growing Machining Business
Is it time for you to buy your next CNC machine? As much as you love getting new business opportunities, it’s stressful when jobs take longer than you expect, and you have to call customers letting them know that you’re not going to be on time. And it’s almost as bad to turn away business when your lead-times are too long as it is to not have enough work to keep all your CNC’s running all the time. If you’re like so many other small American manufacturers, buying a new CNC at full-price is a risk you may not be willing to take, but you do need more capacity.
We started our company to help manufacturers just like you. There are many similarities between the car business and CNC machine business. Like the new car that loses the greatest percent of value the day you pull it off the lot, it’s when a brand-new machine leaves the manufacturer that it loses it’s value. The good news is that after the initial depreciation, many used CNC machines hold their value MUCH better than cars. They are valued based on the demand to make parts that are in the sweet-spot for that equipment and the ability for machinists to operate them. And like a car, new CNC’s each year come out with bells and whistles that incrementally improve production capability, but not every company really needs super-speed, a new process controller, extra stability for heavy parts, more clearance between tools, more ergonomic loading, better CAD/CAM integration, or the many other things that the manufacturers offer each year. While it would be great to buy new each year, a production machine shop or job shop in the United States has the option to buy used, saving money and incrementally improve their machining capabilities.
We buy CNC machines from American machine shops and manufacturers
We buy CNC machines from American machine shops and manufacturers who want to liquidate their equipment quickly for the best price. Not only can we help you replace that machine with cash, but we can also consult with you selecting the replacement equipment. You can count on us to help you make investments in CNC’s that continuously improve your capacity, speed, agility and expertise in CNC machining. Our experts know what machines are best for what applications and would love to be your partner as your company grows into new markets. Both selling and buying equipment is a natural part of the evolution of a growing CNC machining company, and we would like to be your partner!
