Competition Increases for Fire Damaged Machines

machine in fire

Prices for the fire damaged, or general machines for spare parts, at the recent Euro Auction in Leeds were remarkably high. Biding between competing dismantlers was fierce as they all try to increase their inventory of available used parts. Even though there has been a marked decrease in the scrap value of the metal, this increase in the prices being paid for damaged machines reiterates how the used parts market is continuing to grow. Demand for cheaper alternatives to main dealer prices for construction equipment parts has fuelled this growth. With month on month increases in parts requests submitted through online parts network UrParts.com it looks like this trend will continue.

Older machines still preferred over newer models

At the heavy equipment auction Ritchie Bros in Hartford, CT, USA yesterday there was a lot of older Cat equipment still making high prices. This confirms what is obvious from recent UrParts.com parts requests that due to the continued recession in the construction market many operators are choosing to purchase older machines and keep them running with cheaper spare parts than finance the purchase of younger equipment. This trend is also due in part to the increase of electronic control in construction equipment produced post year 2000. An increasing amount of owners regret purchasing newer equipment as it requires at lot of additional costs when getting the main dealer out to diagnose simple electronic faults that cannot be found or repaired without difficult to obtain hardware and software.
