  • know you are getting a good market rate
  • purchase in a reliable environment
  • utilise our vast network of domestic and international contacts when searching for suitable plant and machinery

Our solution was to create a new form of online broker

A place where you can benefit from:
  • our wide range of contacts
  • our high level of experience spanning many years
  • still being able to retain control of the buying and selling process.
With the largest range of production plant and machinery in New Zealand, and a huge database of buyers and sellers, who we regularly keep in contact with, we offer a service that is highly accessible, reliable and knowledgeable.

If we don’t have the equipment you’re looking for listed online, we can tap into our vast network of contacts, both within New Zealand and overseas, and source it for you. This means you have the time to concentrate on your business.
