sell your cmm

Have you recently purchased a new CMM machine and no longer need your old machine? Do you no longer have a requirement for a CMM? Status understands that selling a used CMM machine can be extremely difficult, from finding a buyer to getting the machine moved. The good news is that Status are constantly on the lookout for unwanted CMMs that we can buy, refurbish, and give a new lease of life to.

So, why should you sell your CMM to Status?

Maximum value

If you sell your machine privately without getting a valuation first then you may not realise the true value of your CMM machine. Status will help you realise this value by first providing an expert and accurate valuation from our almost 40 years in business. This ensures you get maximum value for your machine with competitive prices paid following valuation.

Quick payment

With Status, you can rest assured that you’ll receive the money for your unwanted CMM in no time at all. We always ensure quick and secure payment. If you’re looking to sell your machine quickly and need paying fast then it’s time to choose Status as your used CMM machine buyer.


Selling your CMM to Status is completely hassle-free. For one, you don’t have to worry about finding a buyer which can take a lot of time in itself. Secondly, you won’t have to think about how you’re going to move the machine as Status cover all of the decommission and removal costs.

All makes considered

Some companies that buy CMM machines are only looking for specific makes and many private buyers are the same. However, here at Status we consider all makes of high-quality pre-owned CNC CMMs including DEA, Mitutoyo, Nikon, LK, Zeiss, Wenzel, Brown & Sharpe and many others. No CMM will be disregarded based on make. Each machine is assessed on tech specs and the quality it’s in.

New lease of life

One of the biggest differences to letting Status acquire your CMM is that it will be given a new lease of life. This is done through our specialist CMM retrofitting where your machine is retrofitted with PC-DMIS software and Hexagon controllers. Status retrofitted CMM machines are able to match and exceed the performance of new machines, delivering remarkable time savings and drastically reducing costs. It’s at this point when some of our customers stop and take a closer look at Status, realising that we’re far more than a used CMM machine provider or buyer, we’re a one-stop metrology solution provider. In fact, many of our customers who were at first looking to sell their existing CMM machine to us to raise the funding for a new machine have instead opted for a Status CMM retrofit!

Free valuation

Valuing your CMM is all part of our CMM buying service and it’s completely free. Getting your free valuation couldn’t be simpler. Take some pictures of your machine and send them over to Tony or Richard on along with the machine specification. We’ll then provide you with your expert valuation and all you need to do then is give us the go ahead for a quick, hassle free, CMM sale!
