Raymond Travel Machinery Ltd (United Kingdom)
Raymond Travel Machinery Ltd are buyers and sellers of used production and packaging machinery. Based in the UK, the business was founded by Mr Raymond Hart and is now run by his sons Paul and Jason. Operating since 1975 our customer base spans the Globe, including major multi-nationals, SMEs as well as start-up businesses. We buy & sell all types of used production & packaging machinery, from the smallest & simplest of machines for a start up business, right up to much larger units to increase our customers’ production or packaging outputs.
Many companies have surplus machinery sitting on the factory floor or in their storage warehouses. These unwanted assets always have some kind of value to other companies. Over time they can deteriorate and simply gather dust. Any value they do have, will also then be significantly reduced. We help the owners to transform these unwanted assets into money. Selling these unused assets the owners can turn this idle machinery into capital which can be reinvested into new machinery, etc. Our business works with the owners to identify the machinery; advertising the machinery to our Worldwide customer base and searching for the buyer. Through our website, emailing marketing campaigns, spot advertising & good old fashioned telephone calls, we are able to put your unwanted, surplus used machinery in front of many thousands of potential buyers. We have a large database of customer enquiries, so we know what customers could be interested in certain types of machinery. Also through experience in selling used machinery, we can approach our customers to see if they are interested in certain types of equipment, as & when it becomes available. We work together with all the companies involved to complete the sale and transfer of assets.
Selling machinery in working condition from the factory floor will produce the best financial return for the seller, as the buyer can make an inspection assured he has a working machine. Sometimes details & pictures/video of machines are enough for a buyer to commit to a purchase. We do also sell machinery in “as is” condition which would be reflected in a lower price. This enables the customer to then have the option to do some maintenance and mechanical work themselves, or to send to a specialist engineering company to get it set up to their exact specifications before installing in production. We believe that we offer very competitive pricing for all of our used machinery.
As well as selling individual machines, we also sell complete production and/or packaging lines usually brokering these directly from the factory. From a sellers point of view this will maximize their return on the equipment, for a buyer they will gain confidence from seeing the line installed, maybe even still running. Early notification from the seller of surplus assets also ensures maximum marketing time to our customer base. If a complete line can be sold directly from the factory floor, then this also gives the seller a clear floor space to work with, once the line is no longer required, reducing their own cost of removal, storage, etc.
