Terms and Conditions of Buying and Selling Through Coffee Equipment Pros

Coffee Equipment Pros is a broker and distributor of coffee roastery equipment. We advertise, market, represent, and sell coffee roastery equipment, working closely with our manufacturer relationships to fulfill sales orders expeditiously and transparently to and for our buyers.

All new equipment listed, represented, and sold on our sales platform, www.coffeeequipmentpros.com, carry a manufacturer warranty and service recovery policy facilitated and backed by the manufacturer. Coffee Equipment Pros does NOT warranty or guarantee (express or implied) any new equipment sold. Coffee Equipment Pros does not endorse our manufacturer's designs or performance and does not assume any responsibility thereto.

All used equipment listed and sold through Coffee Equipment Pros is in “AS-IS, WHERE-IS” condition and all sales are final. Coffee Equipment Pros does not offer any warranty (express or implied) regarding used equipment. No refunds or returns after buyer and seller sign the purchase and sales agreements. Coffee Equipment Pros recommends and encourages in-person inspection by buyers of all used equipment prior to purchase. If buyer chooses to NOT do an in-person inspection, it will be noted on the final purchase agreement that an in-person inspection was offered and declined, and that photos, and video(s) if applicable, available to the buyer before the sale are deemed to be sufficient evidence to the buyer of the equipment’s condition at the time of sale.  It is the buyer’s sole responsibility to do due diligence regarding the equipment’s condition, usability, limitations, and any other matter relating to the used equipment.

All used equipment sales are FINAL. No returns are allowed, and no refunds are given. All buyers who purchase used equipment sold through Coffee Equipment Pros are given the option to purchase a Coffee Equipment Pros Tek-Pak, which is a qualified technician supported assurance agreement for the used equipment installation and operational success.

When a seller chooses to list their used equipment on Coffee Equipment Pros’ platform, we instantly go to work, researching equipment, market conditions, price, and then create the media-rich listing. We then put it into our marketing system which includes a host of outreach efforts. Upon receiving requests for purchase, we professionally represent and transact.

In doing so, we ask our sellers to give us time to dedicate our resources to selling your roaster or roastery equipment. It takes time for your listing to be properly indexed online to gain exposure, and for us to build and implement customized marketing efforts including social media (organic and paid), SEO/SEM campaigns, target e-blasts and calls to our network, etc.

We will continue to showcase your listing on our site and market it on your behalf for as long as you desire. Simply notify us when you'd like it to be de-listed.

You, the seller, agree to the following and represent, warrant, and covenant that at all times during the term of this Agreement:

      • The equipment information provided by the seller is complete and accurate, and the equipment is in full working order, unless otherwise noted in writing by seller. The website listing is accurate relating to seller’s equipment as we understand it from the information you provided and from our review phone call. All photos and videos seller provides of the used equipment is accurate. If any information is not accurate or misrepresented at any time during the term of this Agreement, Seller agrees that it will be fully responsible and liable for any liability relating (directly or indirectly) to such inaccuracy or misrepresentation;
      • The individual entering into this Agreement is authorized to act on behalf of seller and to bind seller to the terms of this Agreement;
      • Seller has the full power and authority to conduct its business, to enter into this Agreement, and to perform your obligations under this Agreement;
      • Seller’s execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement will not conflict with or violate: (i) any provision of law, rule, or regulation to which you are subject; (ii) any order, judgment, or decree applicable to you; (iii) any provision of your organizational documents; or (iv) any agreement or other instrument applicable to you;
      • Seller will comply with all applicable federal, state, and local laws, rules, regulations, court orders, judgments, and decrees;
      • Seller will defend, indemnify, and hold harmless, Coffee Equipment Pros, each of its respective officers, directors, members, managers, employees, sublicensees, contractors and agents (collectively, “Indemnified Parties”) from and against any and all claims, actions, losses, liability, damages, fines, costs, and expenses (including reasonable attorney’s fees and expenses) arising from or related to any breach of this Agreement by seller (including, but not limited to, any representations, warranties and covenants made by seller herein). This provision survives the termination of the Agreement.

When Coffee Equipment Pros receives the monetary investment from the buyer via bank wire transfer, seller of used equipment and manufacturers of new equipment will be immediately notified of receipt and Coffee Equipment Pros’ quick-pay assurance will go into effect. With respect to used equipment, the seller will receive IMMEDIATE PAYMENT upon CEPros receiving the buyer's full payment and when all logistics arrangements are satisfied. This immediate payment will be made before the equipment leaves your possession — working around your schedule for equipment prep and pick up by the buyer, crating company, or freighting company.

Rest assured, CEPros ensures that all Elite Sellers receive 100% of their payment before their equipment is released from their possession. We prioritize your peace of mind and guarantee a secure and efficient payment experience every time.

We add an industry-standard broker fee (averaging 15%) to the price you're expecting to receive. Through extensive equipment selling experience and current market research, we can help you identify a number that will position your equipment competitively into the marketplace.

We DO NOT require an exclusive listing contract, locking you into an awkward situation that isolates the opportunity for your equipment to sell. Our entire team is about supporting and assisting you in selling your machinery as quickly and efficiently as possible.

The following provisions shall survive any termination of this Agreement: “Disclaimer and Limitation of Liability”, “Indemnification”, “Representations and Warranties”.
