Access Platform Sales (APS) is celebrating the success of its first ever Stock Sale of used access equipment.

The company held the event at the headquarters of its parent company, IAPS Group, in Telford, Shropshire. Buyers travelled from across the UK to attend, while others placed orders over the phone and via email. APS also sold several units to overseas customers.

Almost 50 machines with total guide prices of around £400,000 were on offer. Working in partnership with Nick Murray Access, APS closed deals totalling more than £300,000.

The sale inventory comprised of a variety of access platform types and ages, taken from ex-demo stock and APS’ well-known Approved Used range of refurbished pre-owned machines. It included self-propelled booms and scissors from Genie, Haulotte, Snorkel, UpRight and Dingli, as well as tracked booms from Hinowa, low-level access platforms from Youngman BoSS, trailer-mounts from Niftylift and vehicle mounts from Versalift, Isoli, and Aldercote.

Stock Sale organiser Nathan Cook of APS said: “We were blown away by the level of interest and were delighted to sell such a large amount of the inventory on the day. We also fielded a high level of enquiries after the event.

“APS is known across the UK as a highly reputable used equipment vendor. We regularly take in used machines as part-exchange, so our inventory is constantly changing. Anyone who missed out on the Stock Sale can still get in touch with us to pick up a bargain.”

APS is a leading distributor of powered access platforms and is the exclusive UK dealer for Aldercote, Hinowa, MEC and Socage, as well as an authorised Genie dealer. APS also offers a wide range of used equipment, flexible finance packages, and part-exchange deals.
