Experience does not come out of the blue: inspection, maintenance, choice, cataloguing, storage... handling procurement of second-hand building material directly can entail several problems that could cause the prices to rise unpredictably if addressed for the first time. GBM has the solution to all of your problems. Especially those you are not well versed with.
When a company decides to buy second-hand building equipment, it may be faced with problems that inevitably lead to waste of time as well as investing more energy and money than initially expected.
The scaffolding second-hand market is unique. We - at GBM - are aware of the problems faced by buyers and sellers. And we solve them all. In the interest of both. Here is how we prepared a plan capable of ensuring a more pocket-friendly and safe purchase of second-hand material.
In order to reduce costs and times related to buying the required material, use of second-hand materials is becoming a widespread practice in some markets, at times even without engaging brokers of building material. And often, when faced with an opportunity (for example when clearing a warehouse) even those who do not deem it a valid option are tempted to go for it. However, to someone not well versed with the second-hand market or someone venturing into assessing or buying second-hand products for the first time, a seemingly unrepeatable opportunity could turn out to be less advantageous than expected (if not counter-productive).
Caught wind of how to land a major batch of second-hand material? Great! However, which unpredictable problems could you be faced with when sealing the deal? Here are a few:
In order to overcome the aforementioned problems, a good option could be turning to someone specialised in manufacturing and selling new and second-hand scaffoldings and props. Thus, the experience of the person carrying out the preliminary and assessment research on the ground can spare you unpleasant surprises and help you save your precious time.
For years now, mainly as concerns customers in emerging markets (and beyond), GBM has been selling second-hand building material: various brands of scaffoldings (GBM, Jolly, Goffi, Ceta, Pilosio, Dalmine, Marcegaglia to name but a few), light and heavy-duty props (including GBM, Doka, Peri, Hunnebeck props), beams and panels (such as GBM, Doka, Peri, Kauffman, Pfeifer), accessories (adjustable sideboards, orthogonal and rotatable joints, ring nuts, flanges, ladders) as well as building and worksite machinery (shearing, bending, cutting machines).
Fully aware of the needs of customers in need of this material as well as the various source markets, we created an internal logistics service for sourcing and sorting second-hand products.
GBM works with a network of expert agents who report small and large batches of material on daily basis. The material is then moved to our warehouses in Brescia (close to Milan - for transportation costs reference purposes) where it undergoes strict inspection and upgrading procedures.
Do you remember the problems listed in the previous list? Here is how we - at GBM - systematically overcome and eliminate them:
The commitment and care we put into handling second-hand material as well as supplying it in compliance with our quality standards shows in the end result. Though some of our services (like cataloguing) may seem superfluous, they always strive towards
