What do you do?

We sell used photocopiers and printers to businesses in the United Kingdom.

Why are your prices so cheap?

We purchase our machines in bulk and have our own transport on the road every day collecting used photocopiers to add to our stock. Buying in bulk enables us to purchase machines at low prices and this way we can pass on the saving on to you.

Do you export machines overseas?

Yes, we have a thriving export business in which we sell machines which are not quite good enough for the UK market. Machines which we export are packed in a 20ft or 40ft container complete with a ‘false’ wooden floor which we build ourselves and typically hold 50 or 100 copiers per container. If you want to know more about the export side of the business then contact our Export Manager Ashley McCall on 01768 210800 or via email at

I am a trade dealer, can I purchase machines from you?

Yes, although this website is primarily for end-users in the UK, if you wish to discuss trade deals with us then please give us a call on 01768 210800 or email us at and our sales team will be more than happy to discuss this with you.

Do you deliver?

Yes we offer a FREE nationwide delivery service using our fleet of lorries and vans. You are also welcome to make a personal collection from our Penrith warehouse.

Are your machines warranted?

All machines sold by us have been previously owned and consequently we do not have a full record of their history. However, we do offer a 30 day warranty on all copiers sold – if your copier develops a fault within 30 days of purchasing then we will either repair or collect the faulty machine and replace with another.

What condition are your machines in?

We only buy machines in working condition. When new stock arrives at our warehouse they are checked over and tested by our trained technicians before being added to our state-of-the-art stock system. When a machine is purchased they are thoroughly checked over by us prior to re-selling which includes the following: the machine is stripped out and cleaned, parts checked for wear and tear and then re-assembled. The machine is then set to factory defaults and all functions are thoroughly tested including the printing of test sheets before the machine is cleaned externally and shrink wrapped ready for delivery.

Are the machines ready for use on delivery?

All of our machines are ready for use upon delivery although they may need 4 or 5 hours acclimatising to the ambient temperature before being switched on. They undergo testing and quality assessment before leaving our warehouse.

Do your machines come complete with toner?

Yes. When we purchase used photocopiers they arrive with the toner cartridges in place and we sell on the machines with these toner cartridges. If you require extra toner then please visit our Toner and Consumables website at to purchase further supplies.

Our sister company, Toners For Sale is one of the largest suppliers of toners and consumables in the United Kingdom.
