Large hospitals and medical centers may have the budget to purchase shiny, new medical equipment from the manufacturer every few years. At the same time, these very big facilities may be able to afford to simply have old equipment hauled away as scrap. However, in an era of rising medical costs, even some major medical facilities are taking advantage of the chance to buy and sell used medical equipment. For smaller health centers, these services are almost essential to remain in business.
At MedStandard.org, our professionals can guide you through either process. If you want to sell your old medical equipment to make room for new items or close a clinic, we are eager to purchase. On the other hand, if you need extra equipment because you are expanding or beginning a new health center, we have refurbished products that we can guarantee will work to factory specs.
Some of this equipment could have a scratch or ding, but you can save thousands of dollars on quality, branded products from manufacturers that you already trust. This equipment comes to you refurbished by our trained technicians to operate like it did the first day it shipped from the factory.

Where Does Used Medical Equipment Come From?
In some cases, we buy the stock from clinics and other heath facilities that are closing down. In other cases, we work with hospitals and medical centers that want to upgrade to new machines. This equipment may be used, but it is still very valuable. We pay fair prices, keeping in mind that we may have to go to some effort to get the machines in the condition they need to be in to sell to other health professionals.
Why Buy Used Medical Equipment?
Many medical offices hold onto their equipment for decades. However, there are usually some costs involved, and one of the biggest costs is servicing. Like some vehicle owners like to buy a new car every couple of years, some medical facility managers just prefer to trade up every few years. This leaves perfectly good equipment that can be placed in other facilities to serve patients. Patients won’t care if an ultrasound machine has a ding on it or was used in another facility as long as it works, and you should not care about that either.
Consider this. Would it be better to have a long wait because your facility only had one heart monitor or ultrasound machine, or would it be better to buy two new and refurbished machines, so your patients and medical staff won’t have to wait in line as long?
The purchase of additional machines can help a practice grow by giving it the ability to service more patients. For practices that need to watch their bottom line, buying used medical equipment from MedStandard.org only makes sense. It also make sense for healthcare facilities who want to provide better service to their patients, and that’s surely what you want your clinic to do.
Why Sell Used Medical Equipment?
How much did your medical facility pay for your last piece of large medical equipment? Was it $5,000? Was it $100,000? In any case, those machines still hold value even after they have been used for a few years. Most medical equipment is built to be very durable, and buyers know that small malfunctions can be fixed and some cosmetic problems aren’t a big problem on the used equipment market.
However, serving old equipment can cost time and money too. No busy facility wants to depend upon undependable respirators or vital medical monitors. The medical professionals have urgent needs, and some patients can wait for treatment. Besides, if medical professionals need to wait to use equipment, that time costs your facility money in lost wages and maybe, lost billing.
With that philosophy, you may want to purchase the latest and greatest equipment every few years. That’s your decision, but we’d like to help you get a sort of a rebate on your purchase. After you install your new monitor or lifesaving machine, why not sell the old one to us.
We promise to offer you a fair price and guide you through every step in the process. It couldn’t be easier to sell used medical equipment, and we would like to be the company that sends you a check. It’s possible that the revenue you get back for selling your old equipment will let you buy even more vital machines for your practice. It’s also possible that you will have an easier time convincing the board of directors to make a purchase when you can also tell the that you can make a sale.
Buying and selling used medical equipment is just good business, and we want to help.
