The Maynards Story

Invest in Used Equipment, Invest in Sustainability!

Maynards Europe is a German auctioneer specialized in selling used industrial eqipment like used machines, processing equipment, workshop supplies and general factory supplies. We're offering hand picked equipment from small surplus offered due to modernization of small manufacturing lines up to complete factory inventories due to plant closures with thousands of items available in a series of sales.

Our Philosophy: Selling the best, recycle what is possible, dispose of what must.

As a provider of industrial auctions, we see ourselves as an essential part of the modern economic cycle, which is not only designed for value creation and consumption, but also includes responsibility for the resource-saving, environmentally conscious handling of economic goods. As a "value-preserving" company, we make our contribution to more sustainability in the industrial sector by helping to give used machines a second chance. Because used machines are more than just cheap, "second hand" alternative. When our customers decide to rely on used machines, they do their part to reduce emissions, act more resource-consciously and protect our environment.

Maynards expertise in the machinery and equipment industry spans over a century.

From our beginnings as a single store front auction house, to our current global footprint, Maynards has continuously enhanced our liquidating, appraising, and financing expertise for the benefit of our customers.  Whether a single asset valuation or a multilocation liquidation, Maynards is committed to providing our customers insights and options to help inform their procurement, divesture, and capitalization of machinery and equipment decisions.

The recipe for success in the used machinery and equipment industry is a combination of experience, integrity, research, relationships, and initiative.

Maynards leverages more than a century of developing these important ingredients which has enabled us to consistently deliver the highest returns and value to our customers.  We do this by combining traditional sales methods with innovative marketing strategies, contrasting the prevailing forces of supply and demand with our database of historical comparables, and offering customizable financing structures to meet the needs of our customers.
