protech-international-floor-managers.jpegThere are a variety of things to consider when searching for a machine retailer for both used or new machines or parts. Without doing your research and using a reputable machine seller, you could wind up paying more than necessary, not having as much inventory to choose from, or worse - you could purchase a machine that never arrives. 

So, how do you find the machine seller who’s a good fit for your business? Here are three considerations to keep in mind. 

1. Market Knowledge

When speaking to a machine seller, they should have extensive knowledge about machinery assessments, quality, availability, pricing, and delivery. And not only should they have extensive knowledge in these areas, but they should be able to answer any questions you have in regards to the machine or parts with your specific application.  

Regardless of if you are looking to purchase new or used machinery or parts, or if you are looking to sell machinery you already have, the machine retailer you use should be able to educate you on the process. 

2. Brand Partnerships

Furthermore, choose a representative who holds official brand partnerships with machinery manufacturer.  

For instance, Protech International is a North American partner for HAWE, Hymmen Group, Fischer Messtechnik, Kraft, Festo, Wemhoner, Brandenburger, CEDS Duradrive, END Armaturen, and many more brands.  

With these partnerships, Protech gets machines and parts directly from the manufacturer allowing buyers to get the highest quality products at the cheapest price. There are no middle-man suppliers. 

3. Reputation

Last but not least, be sure to consider the machine seller’s reputation. Most machine distributors have Google Reviews or testimonials on their website, but it’s okay to ask machine sellers for references or testimonials from other companies they supply to. It’s imperative to work with a machine supplier you trust.
