“Thank you to Machinery Max for help selling our two CNC machines. They took care of all the details from photographing our machines to giving input on the machine to replace the two old machines. We are hoping to find a line boring machine to purchase in a future auction.”

“We were referred by our financing company to MachineryMax. We needed our machine sold quickly and for the best value to make way for a new machine coming in. The team at MachineryMax were great to deal with, the communications and the expectations were right on the mark. Highly Recommend!”

“We have had tremendous success auctioning off equipment that we no longer need in our business. MachineryMax promptly assesses the equipment, takes pictures and handles every aspect of selling. With their extensive knowledge of the industry, the listings are very detailed. That translates to maximum value for the equipment. Machinery Max manages the collections for the auction and we then receive one check. Customers who are picking up the equipment have all necessary documentation, which makes the transfer very easy. We give MachineryMax five stars for customer service and would recommend them to anyone in the market for used machinery.”
