Recyclers turn to second-hand in response to COVID-19

The online marketplace is now available in five languages in response to its growing user base. As well as English, it caters to businesses in Germany, Italy, France and the Netherlands.

In only a few clicks, connects thousands of players in the recycling, construction and demolition industry looking to sell or buy machines and equipment. ‘The platform gives a second life to your machines and parts and has become a vital partner for our users,’ says company commercial manager Julien Jean. ‘Myscrapmachine offers a highly qualitative buying experience.’

The site hosts a wide range of used shears, balers, shredders, excavators, screeners, wheel loaders etc. and this has generated a lot of traffic the last few months – when the site welcomed over 71 000 unique users per month. This is partly because the coronavirus is inspiring industry players to expand their second-hand fleet rather than spend more on new recycling tech.

‘During the difficult corona period we bet on the online visibility of our users. For our business, the impact was positive since sales increased significantly since the outbreak of the pandemic,’ Jean observes.

‘We are already working on a new version of the website to improve the customer’s experience even more,’ he adds. This includes several new membership features.
