Every second Monday of the month on i-bidder.com a fantastic live webcast medical auction takes place, enabling charitable organisations, vets and dentists to purchase surplus medical equipment that would otherwise have been unaffordable and unobtainable. Canute Medical Services have been re-selling medical equipment for over 15 years. The business decided to offer the equipment via auction four years ago to supply an ever increasing market place for obsolete equipment in the UK.
Using i-bidder.com as an online platform enables Canute to reach a global audience every second Monday of the month from their warehouse in Berkshire. Markus Grad – Business Development Director for Canute Medical says “Our demand for good quality used medical equipment outstrips the supply in the UK with the continued use of i-bidder’s live online auction. Our buying base has expanded 20 fold over the past 4 years and is made up of international brokers, end users, vets, dentists and charitable organisations. We have supplied many charitable causes from South America, Syria, Northern Africa and Eastern Europe and the demand is ever increasing”.
The successful growth of Canute’s buying base is a great example of how online bidding helped a noteworthy company gain a broader access to the market and enable fantastic causes to have access to this much needed medical equipment. The current auction, offering over 350 lots, starts on April 13th at 10am. Lots range from baby incubators (Lots 141) to ventilators (Lot 58) and even whole body hyperthermia systems (Lot 44).
Canute provides a full suite of services from site surveys, de-installation, collection, building works and re-marketing for the NHS, Private Healthcare, leasing companies and the MOD.
