launches with cost and sustainability focus

A new online business platform has launched to provide refurbished machinery for the Automotive, Agriculture, Plant and Industrial sectors, as well as for workshops everywhere. aims to help businesses boost their sustainability credentials by utilising refurbished equipment, and also to lower costs by purchasing equipment at price levels that may otherwise be unaffordable.

The new venture is a sister company to, which has, for three years, been the UK’s leading online aftermarket sales platform for machinery into the construction, plant and agriculture industries. 

“As PartsForMachines has grown and our relationship with our supplier brands has strengthened, one of the things we became increasingly aware of was the issue of how the manufacturers in our sectors deal with returned goods,” explains and MD, Abhishek Tanwar. “They are almost inevitably subject to factory refurbishment but there is no real channel dedicated to reselling them, and online they often look unappealing next to new, perfect goods. 

“What to do, therefore, about this? We came up with the idea of a dedicated platform for refurbished machines,”

Concept planning for

The platform’s name leaves prospective purchasers in little doubt as to what it is there to do. The reasoning behind the concept becoming a reality, however, has many facets to it.

Abhishek Tanwar continues: “Firstly, it offers perfectly functioning machinery to those who need it and, at a price level not otherwise available. This might mean some people or businesses having access to machines they would not normally be able to afford – and they all come with full manufacturer’s warranty. And, let us face it, in the sectors we serve, machines get dirty quickly once you start using them. So, when you have used it for a short while, a machine is just a machine – whether brand new or refurbished.  

“Also, and very importantly from our perspective, we are helping create a circular economy and the fact that these machines are going to be used, rather than discarded, means a lower carbon footprint, and helps contribute to a more sustainable future. 

“Finally, it means our supplier partners are free of what has been a perennial headache, and, at the same time, this gives us a whole new and exciting business to develop, which we already have plans in place to enhance, once we are fully up and running.” 

Functioning platform is already a fully functional platform which currently has a selection of machines and accessories from leading brands in the industries they serve, including the likes of Sealey, SIP and Draper. webpage

The product offer includes tools, workshop equipment and accessories, and it already boasts a wide selection. The power tools portfolio covers items such as compressors, wood and metalworking equipment, welding gear, pressure washers and drills, all the way through to wood splitters, lawnmowers, and heating & ventilation systems. 

Workshop gear includes storage, tools of all sorts, workbenches, generators, cables, stands, ramps and much, much more. 

The plan is that will also soon make servicing part of its offer and already up on the site are buying guides and product tips. There will soon also be a regular blog as part of the platform and other features aimed at making the platform the place to go to for everything to do with Refurbished Machines.
