Investing in industrial machinery is always an important expense for entrepreneurs and therefore has to be done with caution and foresight.
When it comes to buying a second-hand machine, the risks increase. In these cases knowing machine history and the conditions where it has been operating before its purchase is of vital importance. It is for this reason that MachinePoint is committed mainly to selling used machines that are still in production.
This allows potential buyers to see where the machine has been working and even see it in operation, greatly reducing the risks. Also knowing the owner of the machine is important to solve doubts and understand the maintenance and usage that the machinery has had.
Under the slogan "from factory to factory", MachinePoint promotes these types of transactions amongst its customers, and discourages the purchase of machinery stored in warehouses.
Cesar Rodríguez, CEO of MachinePoint comments, "In a warehouse it is very difficult to really see the quality of a machine. Many times machines have been falsely rejuvenated with a good cleaning and a coat of paint, giving a good appearance at first glance, but very far from what can be its real state of conservation. Seeing a machine in its original factory and working is very important because it gives us information about how the machine has been treated and maintained, as well as the quality of the product it processes. We see factories of all kinds, from those impeccable where the maintenance of their machinery is part of their production strategy, to factories that are a mess, very dirty and where the machinery ages very quickly. Many competitors buy very cheap machines directly in auctions or in liquidations in very bad conditions, they take them to their warehouses where they are washed and cheaply updated leaving their appearance very attractive for sale. But when it comes to putting them in production the buyers often encounter great difficulties. Different is the work performed by "Overhaulers or serious renovators", these change all the parts that need to be replaced and have a reputation to uphold."
MachinePoint is committed to providing a quality service to its customers. We advise our clients over and over again, to inspect the machinery before buying it and see it in production at its factory of origin, and then have a reliable supplier with enough experience and professionalism to carry out all necessary logistical operations.
