About Us

As Salvage Buyers...

Time is money - we work quickly and effectively to limit your loss.


Crown Salvage is a global surplus and salvage company.  

We specialise in buying industrial equipment and retail stock. We work with business principals in confidence to resolve difficulties with their stock when it becomes distressed, surplus, damaged or abandoned. 

We welcome the opportunity to discuss your requirements for asset disposal either with outright purchase or on a brokerage basis and we act fast to limit any potential loss.

As cargo moves around the world by air, road, rail and via container ships at sea there are the inevitable insurance claims due to extreme weather conditions, accidental damage, vessel arrest, cargo rejection and sometimes ship piracy.

Crown Salvage will buy your rejected cargo. We have established end users in the commercial, industrial and consumer sectors requiring a constant supply of stock.

Our expertise stems from long-standing international experience handling stock made complicated by its political and geographically difficult location, or due to the complexity and restrictive nature of the cargo itself.
