Why do our clients choose Ramco?
Proud to be at the forefront of the circular economy since 1996, our work has helped businesses and public sector departments up and down the country to find new homes for good equipment they no longer need.
And as we enter our 27th year of business, we’ve been reflecting on what sets us apart as an asset reuse specialist and credible partner for sustainable disposal.
So, why do our clients choose Ramco? Here are three things they tell us they love…
- We add value at every opportunity
From day one, it’s been our mission to stop valuable assets sitting idle, because none of us can afford to waste resources. That means we’re passionate about extending the lifespan of an item, as well as achieving the best resale price for it. And when our team of experts spot an opportunity to add value to something we think will help it last longer and sell for a higher price, we do it at our own cost; our experience tells us it’s worth it.
A recent example comes in the form of a couple of ageing Land Rover Defenders we collected from two decommissioned nuclear sites in the UK. We completely transformed the vehicles via refurbishment before selling them at auction to delighted car enthusiasts!
Our leading online auction site ensures we reach a huge international audience of interested buyers, which helps us achieve the best sale price for our clients’ goods. And, if items don’t sell in the initial auction, we’ll include them again in future ones until they do.
This also applies to equipment sold directly from our clients’ site, meaning we never leave our clients with leftover equipment – we’ll clear everything away, creating space and removing the headache. And we’re constantly reviewing the best way to sell assets too, which isn’t always via auction by the way. We take the time to carry out extensive research, to make sure specialist equipment finds the right home through direct sale.
And because we invest in our marketing and communications, the products we sell are always shown in their best light. From high quality 3D photos to live streamed video demonstrations on social media, we know our buyers and what motivates them to buy.
- We provide peace of mind
With so many items being collected, refurbished and sold each week, we pride ourselves on giving peace of mind to all our clients. Based in Skegness in Lincolnshire, our specialist warehouse and logistics centre is the heart of our operation and has a large and secure storage facility where all goods are processed and prepared for their new lease of life.
Every item is barcoded on arrival and tracked up to the point of sale – whether that’s a teaspoon or a trailer. So, assets in our care are always safe, sound and accounted for, providing a full audit trail.
Our commitment to providing our clients with peace of mind is also reflected in our approach to continuous improvement, in which the Ramco team plays a key role. With (too many to count) years of experience under their belt, the team’s expertise and knowledge is not only priceless, but continues to develop. This, along with our multiple ISO accreditations, certifications, and regular compliance audits, is why Ramco is at the top of our game.
- We build lasting relationships
At Ramco relationships really matter to us, and we’re always striving to do more to support our clients.
Working alongside means our team of experts are on hand to guide and support at every step. We make the whole journey simple and transparent, and through our years of experience, we help our clients see the difference between assets that hold value and those that don’t – often preventing good equipment from being treated as waste. A win for the planet and their pocket!
Following the migration towards a culture of hybrid working post-pandemic, we received a marked increase in demand for office furniture disposal. So, to make sure we could respond to these changing client needs, last year we partnered with renowned removals firm, Pickfords, to offer a complete UK-wide clearance and collection solution.
Ramco manages the resale of useable stuff and Pickfords clear any remaining furniture before recycling it – by working together it means our clients only deal with one point of contact to cover all their reuse needs.
