Default Sandhill Plant

Hi All,

I try not to document what I do on here to often as I don't want to be seen as advertising. However seems as there is a section now, why not.

I formed Sandhill Plant late last year after years of selling new machines to the industry, mainly Terex, Case and JCB, on average I sold around 300 units a year.

What I found was that while customers negotiated very hard on the price of new machines, they would often neglect the part exchange price or did not have the time to sell the machines themselves.
The dealer I worked for did not stock used machines so we used to get them underwritten by the trade. In essence this meant at least two people were making money on it.

Retail of the machine may have been 15k, Trade bid was 13k and we would offer the customer 12.5k, essentially the customer is losing 2.5k.

Sandhill Plant offers an alternative giving the customer the opportunity to achieve retail

Over the past year or so I have invested heavily in the marketing and advertising of other peoples assets and it has worked very well. I find the end users for your machines giving you maximum profits. The good thing is you really have to do very little allowing you time to concentrate on other aspects of your business.

You can also advertise before the machines are due to change, making sure we have buyers lined up for when is needed giving you flexibility.

I have subscriptions to all the major online machinery sales sites and have already built a substantial customer database including customers in mainland Europe, Russia, NI, Southern Ireland, UK and Africa.

I take care of everything, all you need to do is tell me where your machines for change are, I will take visit, take photos, advertise and negotiate keeping you in the loop the whole time.

Of course if we do not sell, there is no charge however I am confident that we have the ability to sell anything required. There is a small commission charge once a machine is sold, this is turnover based but it still leaves with you clear profit over part exchanging or selling to used machinery traders.

I have even managed to help new machinery dealers, where customers are looking for top money on the part exchanges but the dealers have nowhere to go as they need the margins. I have helped sell many machines on the customers behalf so the dealer can get the new machine sale.

If any of the forum members would be interested in this please give me a call or PM / email my number is 07852 560411 and email ross@sandhillplant.com. The web address is www.sandhillplant.com

Thanks for reading

Ross

Great post Ross.

Very informative and definitely will be calling you come change time as last couple of times I've bought new I've sold old one myself for far more than dealer was offering. They were not too happy about it but as I said if its worth x why offer me several k less

I will give your details to lad here who has the JCB exc as he is looking at changing and actually spoke with your last employer about a Case along with Harrison's about another JCB.

Cheers Rob, I hope it makes sense. With a customer I have been working closely with (large fleet) using me and turning over 600k have given them 120k more than part exchange value over the machines. There is serious money to be made / saved.

This isn't somebody who was on the m1 with you doing all the hours you did is it?

I just wanted to update this with some recommendation quotes from this forum, hopefully the posters do not mind

From selling Bri 963 a kubota k008 he was looking for

Last year I was looking for a micro-ex for home use/some weekend work/light restoration, as well as trying a few ideas for implements I've got cooking (time permitting). When I mentioned it on here, Reg pm'd me with a few options. He found me a good ex-major hire company K008, and supported me with a minor issue or two since I bought it. My little mount is only small fry, but I couldn't have had better treatment if I'd been buying a fleet of twenty-tonners.

Thanks, Reg, I'll try to find an excuse to buy something bigger next time.
From my scam thread i made....

REG53 - I would like to say a massive thank you for taking the time to post this thread - if more people did that there might be fewer victims of fraud. I found this thread by googling "+49 176 935 72124". I too got a text message responding to my queries over an ebay classified ad for a trailer tent, followed by emails from Mr Thomas Lenihan (lenihan767@gmail.com) offering me one from Elgin - delivered to my door etc etc" - you got it, word for word the same message as started this thread (at the time I googled him but there was nothing on line).

I decided if it was too good to be true it probably was!

So I bid for and won a similar trailer tent at on an auction last Friday. Immediately the auction was won I got an email looking very familiar from Mr Eduard Ghiocel with an email address of “home email” [ brezoane245@hotmail.co.uk ]. He was looking for immediate payment by bank transfer which would be totally protected by ebay (as he could not accept Paypal). I clicked a link in the email from ebay and held a chat session – they also assured me it was perfectly safe. When the transcript of the chat was mailed to me however it came from reelectrics@hotmail.co.uk which I thought was a strange address for ebay to use. I held a new chat session with ebay, this time initiated through their website and they did not recognised that email address the chat was send from and confirmed that it seemed suspicious that he should: use a fairly anonymous email address, not be listed in any area directories for the postcode that ebay supplied, he was offering delivery of a trailer tent rather than collection, that he was delaying me coming to collect for over a week and only then after payment by bank transfer and that he had a feed back of zero.

I too thought about asking for a photo of him holding his photo ID driving license standing on his head next to the possibly fictitious trailer tent but contented myself with saying I would only pay after viewing it (even if it means a four hour drive). I hope posting his name and email above may help ward of other more gullible punters. Mr. Eduard Ghiocel, if you read this, and are totally genuine, please accept my apology and may I suggest you get some feedback and supply and address and phone number when requested to make things more credible (but do not do this if you are the scum bag scammer that I suspect).

Thanks once again, sorry for the long post, now get back to your beloved earth mover thingies.

I'd just like to extend a massive thanks to Ross and wholeheartedly recommend the service he offers at Sandhill plant.

Without wanting to sound like an advert, the treatment I have received has been first class and every effort has been made to ensure a deal has been achieved that benefits all.

All I'd like to say is you literally have nothing to lose and everything to gain by using Ross for future machine disposals, and If my word carries any weight in anyones decision process I will 100% endorse him.

I actually feel I've sold a decent machine and made a friend or two along the way.

Thanks again Ross.

Eddie.
