"Organised, Efficient and Communicative"

BMA has been the best medical auction house we have dealt with so far. They are organised, efficient and communicative. For us, being abroad presents unique challenges which were not only understood but mitigated by the staff at BMA. I could not recommend them highly enough.

"Equipment Management"

Being a large Hospital Trust spanning five sites and with an equally large equipment asset base, it is important for us to have efficient methods in place for our equipment management and disposal policy. British Medical Auctions provide us with an excellent service in relation to the removal and sale of redundant medical equipment. Having a monthly auction collection process with them, we know when prompt collection service will be made by their team and we can plan our work around this. We can also rely on British Medical Auctions to provide us with transparent documentation to prove transfer of liability and certification of patient data erasure which British Medical Auction conduct for us onsite, all very important in the NHS and ourselves here at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust.

"Secure and Accountable"

British Medical Auctions are providing the Hampshire Hospitals Foundation Trust with a high quality and efficient service for the sale of end of life, medical equipment. Their outstanding performance and attention to detail has allowed the Trust to become leaner in its processes in this area and it has provided a financial benefit back to the trust that has been significant. The whole service from collection to sale and return, is secure and accountable and we highly recommend to other medical equipment entities.
