Many financial institutions have had negative experiences with private selling finance deals. By having a licenced 3rd party Dealership or Auction house sell the asset, the finance companies can have the assurance that the loan will be a safe investment.

Without a trusted licensed third party, it is hard for the finance company to know that the asset is not listed on the written off register, guaranteed clear title, stolen or even exists at all.

A trusted licensed third party takes the risk out of the transaction for the finance companies in that they are providing the guarantee in relation to the asset.

That's where we can come involved to assist!

Yes we can! If you can’t get the equipment you are buying or selling to our workshop we can travel to it. Any travel done by a Western Traders Dealer must be paid for before the travel dates.

If the equipment you are purchasing is encumbered it means another party still has money owing to a loan on that item. We run checks to ensure there is no encumbrances on the equipment you are purchasing.
