Where can I see the machine?
Almost all machines and materials are located at our company in Nieuwerkerk a/d IJssel (near Rotterdam, the Netherlands). You can come and see the machines from Monday to Friday between 8 AM and 5 PM. Please give us a call to make an appointment. It is also possible to schedule a video call.
What are the costs for transport?
Please tell us your address and which machine you’re interested in. We can make an offer with a rate for transport without any obligation. You will usually receive a price within a day. In the case of exceptional transport (because of the width, length or height of the machine) or transport by container, it may take a bit longer.
When is the machine available?
Most of the machines are available at short notice. Often it is even possible to pick up the machine immediately and pay by debit card or bank transfer. Do you need the machine quickly? Please inquire about the expected delivery time.
What is the condition of the machine?
It is our goal to deliver reliable and well-functioning machines. Therefore, the used machines are tested by our technicians before delivery. Sometimes this can differ because the machine has already been dismantled. Most products are supplied in the state in which they find themselves. Please ask the salesperson for more information on a specific item. It is also possible to request more pictures or schedule a video call.
What are your terms and conditions?
The machines are sold on under our general terms and conditions. The products are supplied in the state in which they find themselves. It is our aim to provide reliable and properly functioning machines. Please ask the salesperson about any concerns or questions.
Do you also provide installation?
Whether a machine needs to be installed by a specialised technician depends on the type of machine and the experience of your staff. Most machines are stand-alone and can easily be installed by the buyer. Should installation be required, you can either organise this yourself locally or we can help you. For technically more sophisticated machines, we work together with dealers and our technical partners. Our own technicians do not carry out installation.
What are the payment conditions?
All machines must be paid in full before loading. This applies to both new and existing customers. After invoicing, the payment term is 10 days. When the payment term has expired and payment has not yet been received, the machine becomes available for sale again.
Can I reserve a machine?
We work on the ‘first come, first served’ principle. Reserving a machine is only possible if the buyer is at an advanced stage and the reservation is for a few days only. Often we are in contact with several potential customers simultaneously. Even when a machine is reserved we continue to offer our machines until they are sold definitively. The machine also remains active on the website.
Which VAT rate applies?
Mentioned prices are excluding 21% VAT. For companies within the European Union and with a valid VAT number, 0% VAT is charged. Customers outside the European Union are also exempt from VAT, provided that the stamped import/export papers are returned within 6 weeks.
How does the purchasing process work?
Have you found a machine that suits you? Then please send us your company details (incl. VAT number for foreign customers) by e-mail. Please also state whether you will be collecting the machine yourself or whether we have to arrange transport for you. You will then receive the invoice by e-mail. Upon receipt of your payment, the machine will be prepared for delivery.
Which machines can I sell to Duijndam Machines?
You can offer all horticultural and agricultural machinery to us. As an international trading company, we actively buy machines for vegetables, fruit, flowers and plants, such as sowing machines, planting machines, weeding machines, harvesting machines, washing machines, sorting machines, packaging machines, conveyor belts and many other machines. Here, we are not limited to any particular brand. This means that we can handle many different types of machines. Do you still doubt whether your machine suits us? Fill in the form above and our buyers will assess the machine.
Can I also sell complete production lines and company inventory to you?
Yes. You can contact us, regardless of whether you want to sell one machine, an entire production line or all machines for a particular crop. We regularly buy whole production lines and company inventories from vegetable cutting and processing companies, horticulture companies (such as vegetable growing, agriculture, fruit growing, tree nursery, pot plants and floriculture), sorting companies and packaging companies. We are often a suitable buyer for a large number of these machines. Would you prefer one buyer for everything? Please mention this in your call.
How does the process of selling my machine work?
Selling your machine starts with sending information to Duijndam Machines, such as brand, type of machine, specifications and photos. This can be done via the form above, by email to: email@example.com or by phone on +31 180-632088. Our buyers will then evaluate the machines. The more information and photos you provide, the better our buyers will be able to assess the machine's value. The buyers will evaluate your machine and come back to you with additional questions about its technical condition. We can give the best assessment of the machine when it is running. This can be done through a visit or a video (video call). When we have come to a deal, we will ensure clear conditions and collect the materials from you in consultation.
Can I sell a machine to you from all over Europe or America?
Yes, we trade machines all over Europe and sometimes even machines outside Europe, such as in America and Canada. It depends on the type of machine, quality, age and price to determine whether the machine is interesting for us to buy. Please offer your machine for assessment by our buyers.
I do not have any photos at the moment. Can I offer the machine without photos?
Yes, you can fill in the form now and send the photos later. You can offer your machines via the form above, by e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone on +31 180 632088. We will, however, ask you to take photos or a video. So that it is clear to us what it is about. In the confirmation e-mail there is also an e-mail address where you can send the photos. Or you can ask the buyer for his phone number via Whatsapp.
What price will I get for the machine?
The price you receive depends on several factors, such as technical condition, maintenance history and how much demand there is in the market for this type of machine. We always do our best to offer a realistic price that is in line with the market and based on market developments. This includes our expenses for repairs and transport, as well as risk, and margin. We use our databases and years of experience to determine the price. The more information you can provide about the machine, such as purchase and maintenance invoices, the better we are able to quickly arrive at a good price.
Do you also broker machines?
Yes, we also mediate for machines that are more complex or have a smaller market. The sale always goes through us. The advantage of mediation for the seller is that he receives a better price than the normal purchase price. However, the machine must be stored by the seller himself. Our added value is that the machine comes to the attention of a large international audience. We do this through our international network, our own website, various other websites and newsletters. In addition, your machine is actively included in quotation processes to other customers in English, German, French, Dutch and Russian, and to a lesser extent in Italian, Spanish and Polish.
How reliable are you?
We have been in the business of buying machinery since 1977. This has resulted in a (financially) solid company with long customer relationships with entrepreneurs from all over the world. Our customer base consists of both large and small companies that trust us. Our operations are based on honesty, reliability and a straightforward way of doing business. As a family business, we understand the value of relationships and we strive to build long-term relationships with our customers. When you sell your machine to us, you also have the security of getting paid, which is a lot more uncertain when selling through other channels.
Who takes care of dismantling?
The most important thing is that dismantling is done professionally, so that the machine can be transported without damage. For some machines this is easy, while for other machines or situations this is more complex or more work. For each transaction, we discuss whether the selling party is able to carefully organise dismantling and loading. If this is not the case, we will look for the best solution together with the seller.
Do you collect the machines from my place?
We usually organise the collection of the machines. If you have your own possibilities for delivery, please let us know. We do expect the seller to carefully load the machines onto the lorry. Should you not be able to do this, we will look for the best solution together.
What condition should the machines be in?
It is important that the machine works. So that the machine, possibly after being serviced, can work again for a while with a new owner. Therefore, we want to focus on used machines that are of good quality. Age is less relevant in some cases. Worn-out machines do not make anyone happy. Is a repair imminent? This is no problem, but mention it honestly to us. So there are no surprises. Send photos of worn parts or damage so that everything is clear to the buyer.
