Hello, I'm currently interested in purchasing a CAT 305 Mini Excavator and have come across an appealing offer on eBay from Zircon Used Equipment LLC, found at zirconmachinery.com. While the website has caught my attention, I'm unfamiliar with this company, leading me to hesitate about making a purchase without the chance for an in-person equipment inspection. The specific machine I'm considering is located a significant 1170 miles away, and the seller has proposed handling the shipping to my location. I'm reaching out to inquire if anyone in this community has prior experience with acquiring heavy equipment from Zircon Used Equipment LLC or another online dealer. If you have such experience, I'd appreciate hearing about the nature of your transactions and any insights or advice you might be willing to share. Thank you in advance for your assistance!

I recently acquired a Kubota KX-057-4 Excavator from Zircon Equipment, and the experience was truly exceptional. The team demonstrated remarkable patience, dedicating time to explain every detail and ensuring I had a thorough understanding of how to operate and maintain the machine effectively. The equipment's quality exceeded expectations and has become a valuable asset to my business. Overall, my satisfaction with the entire process is beyond measure, and I wholeheartedly recommend Zircon Equipment to anyone in search of heavy equipment. My sincere appreciation and blessings go to the Zircon Used Equipment team for their outstanding service.

I recently had an incredibly stress-free experience purchasing my second Skid Steer from Zircon Used Equipment. After acquiring a 2018 CAT 242D from them last year, I decided to add a 2006 Bobcat to my collection this year. The quality of service provided by Zircon Used Equipment is truly unparalleled, and their employees are exceptional. What impressed me the most about the buying experience was the delivery process. Despite initial worries about potential delays, the four-hour PDI Inspection with the machines went by smoothly. The service team was extremely friendly, helpful, and honest, making the online buying process completely hassle-free. They took the time to thoroughly demonstrate every feature of the equipment and followed up with me diligently after the sale. I am a customer for life and wholeheartedly recommend Zircon Used Equipment to anyone in search of high-quality construction equipment and top-notch service.

Before making any online purchases, it's essential to research reviews through Google and other search engines. If a company is reputable and honest, it should have a significant number of reviews that can help draw conclusions. After specifically studying Zircon Used Equipment LLC, I can confidently conclude that it is a serious and trustworthy company with a vast number of positive reviews. By the way, thanks for the link; I see many loader models that are interesting to me. After the transaction, I will definitely leave my review here.

I've successfully navigated the cautious landscape of heavy equipment purchasing, securing a CAT 308 Mini Excavator for a mere $40,000 and acquiring two Komatsu Excavators from New York and Pennsylvania on separate occasions. Recently, I facilitated the sale of a Caterpillar Skid Steer for $25,500 to a Virginia buyer who relied solely on pictures for assessment. It's crucial to discern genuine opportunities from potential scams, emphasizing the importance of thorough research. By conducting a comprehensive Google check, I confirmed the authenticity of the website. Prior research remains a key element to understanding the landscape before committing to a purchase. Confidence in evaluating equipment condition and seller reliability can lead to fantastic deals. Your shared experiences provide valuable insights, and I hope others can learn from your successes.

I highly recommend Zircon Used Equipment for heavy equipment needs. Recently, I purchased a lift from them and faced an issue during loading. Zircon Used Equipment was incredibly accommodating, allowing me to pick up the equipment late and storing my trailer overnight. Despite the issue persisting, Zircon Used Equipment went above and beyond by offering to help with the cost of diagnostics and allowing me to return the lift if it cannot be fixed. Amanda's dedication to resolving the issue and ensuring my satisfaction was truly exceptional and a testament to the outstanding customer service provided by Zircon Equipment. Overall, I am a satisfied customer of Zircon Equipment due to their exceptional commitment to customer satisfaction. If you're looking for high-quality equipment and exceptional customer service, Zircon Equipment is the right choice.

Had the opportunity to become a customer of this company and have not regretted it at all. The only downside is the payment method. They only accept bank transfers. Suggestion: introduce credit card payments. It would help many customers. All the best.
