The range of services of Surplex GmbH

We buy and sell second-hand machinery

Surplex markets used machinery and equipment for the metalworking and woodworking industry. Our range of offers covers solid-built, older machines through to younger, top-quality used machinery – all offered at prices significantly lower than those of comparable new machines. Surplex’s used machinery is generally available at short notice and you will be provided with comprehensive technical information, up-to-date and detailed photographs, and often videos as well. In some cases, prospective buyers may be able to view the condition of the machine while it was still being used in ongoing production.

Insolvencies/company liquidations

The expertise of Surplex is in especially high demand when it comes to insolvencies or company liquidations. Our experts organise the entire process – from accepting the equipment through to assessments, marketing, sales, invoicing, as well as customs clearance and finally, handing over the factory/plant in a spick and span condition. The tighter the timeframe, the more you can benefit from our experience. Surplex can guarantee you the best possible results even if there are only a few weeks between being awarded the contract and execution.


Do you have a large amount of remaining stock, whole pieces of machinery or even an entire plant you wish to dispose of? If so, our auctions may be of interest to you. We will take on all the tasks before, during and after the auction. This includes appraisals and inventory, sales and processing, through to clearing out factories and handing them over in a spotless condition.


Our core business area is marketing used machinery and equipment. To find out whether this approach would be a good idea for your machinery, we carry out a careful appraisal with you and explain the results. The main criteria for the decision will be what you wish to put up for sale and where your priorities lie. The combination of open sales and online auctions (purchase, contract marketing) ensures the ideal solution can be found for your needs.


Do you have a single piece of machinery to sell? Or perhaps a range of equipment from an entire company? Whatever the case, you can rely on us to sell your machines, equipment and production lines. This marketing model is the quickest way for the seller to gain liquidity or make space for a new piece of machinery. All you need to do is sit back and relax as we clear out your production facilities. For more information on selling, see → selling used machinery.
