Buying equipment with Zomer Company

Confidence with Zomer Company

When purchasing equipment through Zomer Company auctions regardless of auction method, we promise to deliver honesty and integrity in our Live/Online Auctions conducted. We are a large Company but family owned and our relationship with you as our client is important to us. In our Company you are not just a number, but a current and future customer with a valued relationship as our Company strives to meet #1 Customer Satisfaction. Our Company has sold equipment across North America, Canada & Mexico and have thousands of repeat clients.

We do our best to provide adequate pictures and descriptions online, however, inspecting equipment in person is the best form of due diligence. It is best to inspect and evaluate the equipment prior to bidding on equipment.

When selling equipment at auction, we try to obtain as much information as possible to help you make your purchasing decision. Though we cannot make any guarantees, we take the information from sources we deem to be reliable. If an item is selling with some form of warranty, it will be announced. Otherwise, it will sell “As-Is”.
