The Exhibition Buying & Selling Marketplace

Expo-Marketplace is a place to buy & sell exhibtion equipment, whether it's brand new or used.

Nope, Expo-Marketplace is a middle man company linking buyers and sellers a like. So if you're contacting to buy something off the website, we are not the number to call! We do not buy, stock or sell items - our business is classified advertising only. The contact infomation you need are listed in the advert.

Don't sell anything to anyone overseas unless you have cash in your hand.

  • Regardless of what you are buying or selling, you are always going to be a target for dishonest people. This is especially true for online.
  • On no account send equipment or refund money to anyone who has not got a confirmed address in the UK.
  • If someone asks to pay for anything by credit card and post goods abroad just ignore them.

  • Tips on staying safe doing business with anyone you don’t know!

  • Follow Your Instincts: Many buyers or sellers make the mistake of ignoring their gut instinct that tells them something isn't right. If you feel that something “just isn't quite right” about a transaction, then it’s time to start double checking everything.
  • Ask for a landline telephone number and address. Then 'Google' them (most businesses or organisations should have listings in Google, Yellow Pages etc)
  • If someone has given you a phone number or address that is different to one published on their website or in the phonebook, then ring the business in question and ask to speak to the person who has contacted you.
  • Speak to your bank manager for a safe method of payment.

  • You need to talk to your bank manager to find the most secure method. On no account accept a cheque, bankers draft or bank to bank transfer for more money than you have asked for (it does not matter if it has cleared into your account as it can "bounce" up to 120 days after it's cleared!). Your bank will ask you for the money back even if you have taken it out of your bank account.

    Cash will always be King!

    However a bank to bank transfer is normally the safest method of receiving money. Cheques paid in at a remote branch are unsafe even after they have cleared as they can be revoked as the money has been transferred dishonestly.

    Always check and confirm the senders address.
