What is the real market value of a piece of used pellet, granulation or milling equipment?

Buying, selling, financing, or ensuring used equipment can be a real gamble if you do not know what its true market value is.

The motor trade has been using "book values" for many-many years but in the used equipment trade it used to be a question of sucking a price out of your thumb and hoping for the best.

Just like the book value calculators you find in the motor car industry Biotech Emporium developed a book value calculator software program for the pellet, granulation and milling industry that is based on market trending, depreciation value, equipment condition and many other factors. Our calculator will thus provide both Trade and Retail values for any piece of production equipment.

These values offer the seller a realistic trade value on any equipment he wants to sell into the trade, while the buyer pays a realistic retail value for the equipment he buys from the dealer, thereby ensuring a win-win situation for all parties involved. For banks and insurance companies these values help to reduce the risk of over-inflated – non market-related price claims.

Since its introduction in 2009 we have done thousands of equipment valuations for people and companies ranging from private machine owners to insurance brokers and even major banks who needed realistic valuations on used equipment for financing purposes.


A Machine Valuation Example:

Biotech Emporium buys, sells, and trades in used pellet equipment.  So, whether you are looking to sell your old equipment or if you are looking for good quality used equipment you have come to the right place.

Why do we say we also “trade” in used equipment? Since it is not always possible to buy in each piece of equipment that comes onto the market, we developed a process whereby we will sell your redundant equipment directly to our buyers, thus acting only as agents for your equipment.

The process is amazingly simple; you sign a mandate that appoints us as the sole agent to sell your equipment for a price and within a time frame that is agreed upon in the contract.  When a buyer likes what we have to offer and decides to purchase we will pay out the sum owed to you as stated in the contract at which time the ownership of the equipment transfers to Biotech Emporium. The buyer and the seller will thus never have to deal with each other directly since Biotech Emporium takes all that responsibility onto ourselves.

The advantage of this to you as seller is two fold:

  1. Biotech Emporium have an extensive client base so selling your equipment will be much faster through us than when you try to go at it alone.
  2. Biotech Emporium takes on any after sales responsibility for the equipment. That means that once you received your money that piece of equipment is no longer your responsibility as it would be by law should you sell directly. For example: If you sell a machine and it fails within 3 months you are legally responsible for the cost of all repairs according to the South African consumer laws. Biotech Emporium solves that problem by taking that responsibility off your hands when we act as the agent.

For the price conscious buyer who is looking for a high-quality piece of European pelleting equipment, but who cannot afford to buy a new piece of equipment, we offer high quality refurbished pellet equipment that are as good as new.

Since Holland is one of the most advanced countries in the world as far as pellet technology goes with the highest concentration of highly skilled technicians in this industry, most of the machines we sell are refurbished in Holland to the strictest European standards.

The quality of these refurbished machines is so high that they come with the same guarantees as a new machine and they also look and function like a new machine. Due to the quality of these machines, they can also be financed through most major financing institutions just like you would finance a brand-new machine.

Biotech Emporium offers quality new pellet equipment form various well established and proven manufacturers to the market. All our machines come with full after sales service and a guarantee. It is thus your choice, buy directly from a shady overseas supplier and have no after sales backup or buy through Biotech Emporium and have the full after sales service experience.
