Used lab equipment auctions

How lab equipment auctions work: buyers

Buyers can participate in our lab equipment sales by clicking on the auction links above. There, you’ll be taken to our auction partner page, which allows you to sign up to participate in the auction.

Make sure you read the lot descriptions for any relevant information before bidding. We try to be as clear and transparent as possible about the items we have at auction. You can inspect the items up to 48 hours before the auction opens by appointment only. To book at viewing, please contact us.

Final bids are subject to confirmation by the seller, with payment for the winning bid due one week after the auction closes. Once you’ve placed your bid and won the auction, you will be responsible for any manual handling the item might need, including dismantling or disconnection, loading and shipping. This is at your expense. As engineers, we can remove any items for you and we would be happy to quote for this and pack and ship to your premises

Please bear in mind:
  • By participating in our auctions, you consent to be bound by relevant terms and conditions.
  • Purchases are at buyers’ own risk. Buyers should satisfy themselves prior to the sale as to the condition of the lot and should exercise and rely on their judgement as to whether the lot accords with its description at their own risk.
  • The seller and LabAssets reserve the right to cancel any offer, including the highest bid, before or after the sale. They also reserve the right to reject any registrants that are deemed not qualified to participate in the sale.
  • Any defaulted bidder will have their bidder’s rights revoked and banned for future bidding in LabAssets sale.
Full terms and conditions can be found here.

How lab equipment auctions work: sellers

Want to sell lab equipment through an auction, but not sure how? Our in-house auctioneer specialists can guide you through the process to make it totally painless.

If you’ve decided you want to sell lab equipment through us at auction, the first step is to contact us for a valuation. We’re able to offer you a quick, free valuation at the location and time of your choosing, either at our offices or warehouse or at your place of business. If you have smaller items, you can send them via Special Delivery to our LabAssets office in Sandwich, Kent, UK.

Make sure to provide us with all the details you can on your items, such as usage, age, any defects or damage, or anything else you see as relevant. We’ll also need any safety certification details you might have.

Once you’re happy with your estimate, we then market your consignment of lab equipment by promoting the auction. Our auctions are open to a global audience to attract the widest possible range of bidders and help your items reach their top resale price.

Looking to sell all your lab supplies in a lab clearance? We can help you with your valuation. Just get in touch and we’ll help you to get the best return on investment for your items.

Why buy used lab equipment from an auction?

At LabAssets, we believe businesses and educational institutions should be able to access great quality equipment at reasonable prices. We want businesses to buy and sell lab equipment in an environmentally friendly way, rather than consigning perfectly usable lab equipment and lab supplies to scrap.
