When looking to buy used machinery, it is important for buyers to be able to ascertain the authenticity of the listing, and condition of the machinery for sale to ensure the price is right. In some cases however, it is not always possible for a buyer to inspect the machine before purchase and delivery, and this may lead to disputes.
So how does a buyer ensure the used machinery they are looking to buy is priced right and is in proper condition? Conversely, how does the seller confirm he is demanding the right price for his second hand machines?
Enter EFL Verify, a new service offered by EFL Connections. EFL Verify provides used machinery verification and certification for sellers looking to list their used machinery on the EFL connections platform.
What is machine verification and certification?
Machine verification and certification is a process in which the condition and status of used machinery, that is listed for sale, is examined and checked by a trained professional. A report is given to the seller which can be presented to potential buyers to increase the chance of the machinery being sold.
Types of verification
EFL Verify offers 2 types of verification- Online Verification and Physical Verification. The online verification is free and done through a series of questions that the seller needs to answer. The physical verification is a paid service, and involves a machine inspection. A detailed technical, physical and electrical health report is provided for the listed machine.
The difference between online and physical verification is below:
