Top Tips While Buying Used Equipments Are:


  • Do seek references for the seller from someone you know who has dealt with them before.

  • Do physically inspect the equipment before you buy it – make sure that the correct type of serial number plate is fixed correctly to the chassis and that it has not been interfered with.

  • Don’t purchase from ‘dodgy’ places such as pub car parks, lay-bys or service stations.

  • Do view and buy it from the company or home address of the seller.

  • Do be suspicious of recently re-sprayed equipment.

  • Do check the ignition has not been damaged.

  • Do look for any previous owner decals – if you find any, call them to make sure they have sold it.

  • Do ask for any documentation – receipts, service history, V5 etc.

  • Do request a company receipt which includes the seller’s full address and VAT number.

  • Do the inspection done from an authorized body before you buy it – and do so when you are standing next to it.

  • Do insist on seeing the Check certificate if you are buying from a dealer or auction.

  • Don’t pay cash.

  • Do be suspicious if the sale price is less than the current market value.

  • Do walk away if you have any doubts.
