      Important Considerations When Buying Pre-Used / Surplus Equipment and Supplies
      Agree between both parties who will cover the transport and insurance costs.

      If export is involved, take advice from an experienced freight forwarder.

      Document the agreement for the benefit of both parties.

      Documentation may be required relating to standards compliance, service history, warranties and cross infection. See FAQ on this subject.

      You may wish to see the equipment operate before agreeing to purchase.

      If you have concerns about any issue involved in a transaction you may wish to take legal advice.

      The payment arrangements are to be negotiated between the parties.
      In certain circumstances you may wish to agree staggered payment.
      When paying by credit card, some form of insurance may be provided by the credit card company.

      If you are dealing with an overseas hospital or healthcare organisation, the transaction should be conducted on a pro-forma basis, i.e. always ensure payment is received before releasing the goods.
