Why use OEM Exchange?
OEM Exchange is a neutral buyer whereby we offer the most competitive pricing. We pose no conflicts as we are independent buyers.
Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) may offer trade-in pricing for your pre-owned equipment against the purchase of new equipment. Service companies may offer credits against future repair services. OEMs may not be interested in trading in the equipment and offer to find a 3rd party to buy the equipment. Service companies may want to put credits on the books so you keep using their service. Last but not least, if you sell equipment, it may be applied back to the general operating budget. OEM Exchange offers solutions in selling your equipment.
What equipment does OEM Exchange buy?
We buy endoscopes and associated light sources, processors, accessories, as well as battery powered orthopedic power equipment. This consists of flexible and rigid endoscopy systems from OLYMPUS®, PENTAX®, FUJINON®, STRYKER®, and STORZ® Medical, and battery powered equipment from STRYKER Medical.
How does the sell of my pre-owned equipment work?
Contact the OEM Exchange. One of our representatives will walk you through our very simple process. We’ll ask some basic questions concerning the type of equipment that is available and who provides service on the equipment. Upon receiving a listing of your available equipment, OEM Exchange will prepare a competitive bid for your review.
What’s the average deal size?
OEM Exchange purchases small and large lots of equipment. Sometimes customers have two to three scopes to sell or upwards of an entire departmental inventory. No deal is too large or too small!
Why sell your equipment versus trading it into the manufacturer?
Buying new equipment is similar to buying a new car. If the car dealer knows you have a trade-in, they will provide a lower discount on the new car. Consequently, if you tell them you do not have a trade-in, they will offer a better discount. You may have to haggle a bit, but you’re still out to get the best deal. Once you have negotiated your new car pricing, or in this case your new capital equipment purchase, you can then introduce trade-in equipment.
Selling your pre-owned equipment separately from the equipment purchase creates a better net purchase price or the ability to create capital to purchase other needed equipment for your department. Most often, you can achieve the same level of discount on your new equipment without trading in your equipment. You can then use your pre-owned equipment to create tremendous value for other items in which capital may not be available.
Does OEM Exchange provide on-site inspection or pick-up of equipment?
For larger lots of equipment, OEM Exchange will send a representative to inspect the equipment and pack it for shipment.
How does OEM Exchange receive the equipment?
OEM Exchange will provide our FedEx # for shipment or pick-up by a freight forwarder. All shipments are insured by OEM Exchange and we pick up the freight costs.
Is OEM Exchange a GPO-approved vendor?
