New online used equipment market launched

13 November 2014

A new online used equipment market has been developed by Swiss start-up Equippo. has been designed to link sellers of used heavy equipment and buyers in international export markets, like Peru, Poland or Russia.

Launching on 17 November, Equippo claimed it was the first internet marketplace to offer complete transaction management for both buyers and sellers, navigating customs duties, shipping costs and heavy hauling costs even down to police escort fees for international equipment transactions.

This is said to allow used equipment buyers in developing markets to benefit from the international equipment market.

Founder Michael Rohmeder said, “All professional sales organisations I know try to reach end-users in export markets. All buyers I know are always keen to save money by looking across borders.

“But in reality, direct transactions are rare exceptions. Our vision is to break down trade barriers and make global deals extremely easy with a combined e-commerce and real people approach.”

Available in four languages – English, Russian, Spanish and Polish – the website is said to differentiate itself from other sources of equipment buying by emphasising easy transactions, total transaction management and multilingualism. Sales and support are offered in nine languages.
