Buy Medical Equipment

As the market leader with one of the largest inventories of new, used and refurbished medical equipment we are best placed to assist buyers in sourcing high quality medical equipment at affordable prices.


Our sales are an excellent source of medical equipment, we sell over 1700 lots of medical equipment every month to the global medical market, offering the best value for used and refurbished medical equipment.

We ask however that all potential buyers read our conditions of sale and the “how our sales work” page on our website, please remember that most items are sold as seen.

We have a global buyer customer base, with buyers of medical equipment from Europe, North and South America, Africa, Asia and Australia attending our sales, or bidding online.

Medical equipment is built to very high standards and is designed to last many years. Second hand medical equipment can often be purchased at 10-15% of the original purchase price and gives access to high specification equipment for minimal investment. In addition, used medical equipment is often easier to maintain in harsher environments and is less reliant on consumables and expensive manufacturer support; and can be repaired at component level.

Where does the medical equipment sold by Hilditch come from?


The majority of equipment has been pre-owned by NHS hospitals, private healthcare groups in the UK, major manufacturers and distributors, lease companies and finance houses.  We often have equipment available from nursing homes.

What to look out for when buying used medical equipment

Buying second hand equipment is considered risky if equipment condition is unknown, but if care is taken and the condition is ascertained, purchases can be safe. Items in medical equipment auctions are “sold as seen”, any known faults are fully described and basic condition reports can be issued by engineers on request.

The Medical Engineering Department at Hilditch can conduct calibration, equipment repairs and servicing if requested, prior to the buyer collecting equipment purchased from our sales.

What is in our Medical Sales?

We have developed sales in a number of specialist subcategories within the medical sector and have actively developed the market in these areas.
