Why We Are Different

Test Equipment Solutions is the UK’s largest independent supplier of quality, second user refurbished electronic test equipment to buy or rent.

Test Equipment Solutions was born out of a dissatisfaction with the marketplace for the supply of second user test equipment. Customers had the choice of larger companies who put shareholders before customers, or smaller companies with limited capability.

We have set ourselves up to have the resources to handle the largest and most complicated requirements but with a personal service second to none.

Where other companies implement policies for their own internal benefit, all our operations are geared around serving the customer. For example, where other companies install automated telephone answering systems, we purchased a system that gets you through to a human being almost immediately. Try us – we usually answer the phone in one, yes ONE ring.

As an organisation dedicated to handling quality second user equipment we are uniquely placed to provide exactly what you need, when you need it. We are not trying to dispose of our own bad investments, nor are we trying to sell a single choice of product line. We offer a choice of any product from any supplier and our technical expertise will help you choose the right solution for you – not for us.

Used Test Equipment We keep a comprehensive range of equipment in stock from dozens of manufacturers including Acterna, Agilent (HP), Anritsu, IFR, Marconi, Rohde & Schwarz and Tektronix. This enables us, in most cases, to fulfil your needs promptly. If we don’t have what you want in stock, we have an unrivalled sourcing capability, with the ability to call on over 700 sources worldwide. All our equipment sources are carefully vetted and if they don’t meet our quality standards, we don’t use them.

All of our Engineers are long time industry professionals who are able to offer application assistance on our broad range of products. We have over 100 man-years of test engineering experience, in house. We are able to offer complete support pre and post-sale, free of charge.

Every piece of equipment supplied undergoes a thorough electrical, mechanical and cosmetic refurbishment which we back up with a comprehensive no-quibble warranty. Unlike small brokers, we do this ourselves in our own calibrated test laboratory, where we can ensure high quality levels. Equipment is shipped to you with manuals and accessories required for normal operation.

And we do all this whilst offering the most competitive prices in the industry!
