Wonder if you can help please, we have a printing company

This answer was rated:

Wonder if you can help please, we have a printing company and we are downsizing to a smaller unit, we have sold several pieces of machinery without problem. However one buyer of a large item (has been paid for) has not collected from ourselves despite giving several deadlines and plenty of notice of our moving.
We have now arranged for third party storage (at our expense) and informed the buyer but had no reply.
Where do we stand?

Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.

What is the value of the item please?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Value was £1600 GB

Ok - then what you can do is email/write to the purchaser and say they must collect within 30 days or you will dispose of it.

If after 30 days then they do not collect you can re-sell it and deduct the cost of storage. You should then keep those proceeds to one side in the event the purchaser makes contact.

But give 1 months notice to collect or say you will dispose.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

Yes this is correct Paul.

Does that clarify? Alex
