Testimonial use of second hand equipment
There are always people who are hesitant to buy used, refurbished equipment. If it is not because their budget is big enough to buy new equipment or because they have enough time to wait for more equipment with long delivery times (8 to 12 weeks or more) they think that second-hand equipment cannot have the same quality as new equipment. For more than 5 years we have been offering second hand equipment to universities, colleges and pharmaceutical companies. We have already sold to various countries such as Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands, France, Portugal, the United States, Ireland, South Africa, Estonia, Poland, etc. We have some testimonials from past customers who have ordered used equipment. Due to GDPR, we are not allowed to disclose the full name and institution. If you want references please contact us and we will ask our customers if we can share their contacts with you.
