Buying Used Process Equipment

Buying Your Process Equipment

Perry are used process equipment suppliers to the chemical, pharmaceutical, food and beverage industries.  We only sell high quality used process equipment and our items are sold cleaned, tested and complete with service history and equipment documentation.  With our own on-site workshop and skilled process equipment technicians, we can refurbish and carry out certain tests on the equipment prior to purchase. You can read more about this on the capabilities section of our website.

Buying used process equipment can save your company up to 70% compared to the cost of new. 


Buying Options:

If you have searched our inventory and found some suitable used items, our buying options include:

Outright Purchase

The majority of our equipment is immediately available for sale and delivery can be as quickly as next day.  We advise customers to make a site inspection of the equipment and once you decide the machinery is right for you and your process, outright purchase is the simplest way of purchase.  We can load the equipment to your transport, or arrange shipment on your behalf.


We offer a rental option on some items, which allows you to rent a piece of equipment from us for an agreed period of time.  This would be a suitable option if you only needed the equipment for a very short period of time.  Speak with a member of the sales team about this option at the time of your enquiry*.

Sale or Return

Where appropriate, you can purchase a piece of used equipment from us for an agreed period of time to confirm its suitability.  If the equipment is not suitable, you will arrange to return it back to us*.

CASE STUDY: Read how a health food producer used our sale or return service to make sure the equipment was right for them.


If you have redundant/surplus process equipment, our trade-in option allows you to trade-in the equipment you no longer need against the cost of purchasing a used item from us*.

*T&C’s apply.  For more details please contact us.
